NEW YEAR’S DAY IS THE ONLY HOLIDAY THAT CELEBRATES THE PASSAGE OF TIME. PERHAPS THAT’S WHY, AS THE FINAL SECONDS OF THE YEAR TICK AWAY, WE BECOME INTROSPECTIVE. INEVITABLY, THAT INTROSPECTION TURNS TO THOUGHTS OF SELF-IMPROVEMENT AND THE ANNUAL RITUAL OF MAKING RESOLUTIONS, WHICH OFFERS THE FIRST OF MANY IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR REMAKING OURSELVES.
Physical activity builds physical vitality. With every year of your life, you have more to gain from being physically active; as your age-related risks of chronic disease increase, regular exercise generally slows or reverses that trend. Are you ever going to be ﬁt again as long as you live? The answer is unless you make a resolution to get ﬁt – you’re never going to be ﬁt – ever. The choice is yours; it begins by opting for the stairs instead of the elevator, fruit in place of chocolate, and active rather than sedentary activities.
Lose weight and get in better physical shape
Make a resolution now to stop charging anything and to get ﬁnancially stable. If you can’t pay cash for it, you don’t need it, make it just that simple and you will ﬁnd yourself out of debt in no time at all. Keep a diary of all money spent, whether it is by cash, check, credit card, etc. Once you know where your money is going, then, and only then, can you take the steps needed to prepare a good budget that you can live with and make huge strides to budgeting your debt away.
Enjoy more quality time with family & friends
More and more people are resolving to spend more quality time with family and friends this year. This means you must consciously decide to
Stick to a budget
It’s been said that the best defense is a good offense. Developing and sticking to a realistic budget is a brilliant offensive move as it prevents overspending and ensures peace of mind. Many people ﬁnd it very difﬁcult to stick to a budget. It does take hard work and a lot of self-discipline, at least in the beginning. The good news is that most people ﬁ nd the longer they can stick to a budget, the easier it becomes.
One of the ﬁrst things you have to do before any debt can be eliminated is to stop using charge accounts. If you continue to use the accounts, you are only fueling the problemand building on it, not solving it.
