Well, here we are again – ready to start off another New Year’s Day.  Most people start out their New Year’s with a resolution (or three) for things they need to change.  But sadly, but February 1st, they have made little to no progress on their goals.  Sound familiar?  

Then you need some FOOLPROOF TIPS to help!

How ’bout we do things a bit differently this year?  What’s that saying about insanity and doing the same things over and over?  This year, I want to start you off right.  So, I’ve found all my BEST posts from the last ten years to help you with a variety of the most common resolutions!

These are my foolproof tips for how to break those bad habits and start your New Year's off RIGHT.

Let’s Get Started

I’ve got a series of great posts in store for you.  Weight loss is always at the top of everyone’s list, so I’m going to start with my very BEST Weight Loss posts.  I have so many that I’ve created an entire category for weight loss up on my Menu.  I need these tips too after my own holiday indulgences so let’s lose together and never mind the package of Peep’s Marshmallow snowmen, I had for breakfast (hey, it’s not New Year’s Day here YET!).

Next in line, I think should be the debt free and money management posts.  This is one of my favorite topics, so I have lots of posts on this one.  In fact, here is a little tidbit I published just the other day how to recover from holiday overspending, where I share my fabulous debt-free Christmas idea.  You can start right now to make sure you don’t go overboard for NEXT year’s holiday spending.  I KNOW this one works because I’ve used it for YEARS!

Then, I think next on the list is going to be home organization tips.  I don’t know about you, but taking that tree down and packing away the decorations puts me in the mood to burn down the whole house – um, do a little decluttering and cleaning up.  So, that will be day three.

Then, after a couple of weeks cooped up in the house with your little darlings, I think we’ll toss out some of my best parenting posts.  We all want to be better parents, right?

A Little Something for TODAY

In the meantime, you don’t think I’m going to send you away empty-handed on New Year’s Day, do you?  These are my BEST general motivation posts.  These will set up the foundation for ANY changes you want to make.  I suggest you start with:

How to Motivate Yourself to Do Anything

This one is really worth a read.  I share five insanely clever strategies to maintain the motivation for long-term change.  This one is one of my FAVORITES!

How to Use Quotes for Daily Motivation.

I’m a visual person, so having lots of great quotes printed out and sitting in various places around my home and office has been really helpful for me to cement those ideas in my thick head!

OK, this one is a post I’ve been meaning to write, but I haven’t yet.

But here is the basic idea.  We all have to type in lots of passwords every day.  It’s annoying and they are a pain to remember.

But there’s a simple trick to turn them into a motivational strategy.  Build your passwords around the improvements you are trying to make.  For instance, Walk4Me=Less is a nice, secure password and it’s also a subtle reminder for you to walk more to lose weight.  There is an endless supply of ideas you can turn into passwords so you can remind yourself about your goals dozens of times a day.  Clever, huh?
