Happy New Year 2019!

The New Year is upon us! The holidays are over, and the days are slowly but surely getting longer. Inspiration abounds for a new you in the new year. The time has come to make resolutions and commit to new beginnings. Set yourself up for success in accomplishing your New Year’s goals with these recipes, products, and organizational guides.

Some common New Year’s Resolutions are losing weight, getting in shape, and getting organized in your personal and professional life. Others may be to explore new hobbies, start (and finish) a project, or to make more time for the people we love.

My New Year’s Resolutions are pretty generic; eat better, exercise with my dogs more, and declutter my house. I’m also hoping to get into the habit of meditating regularly, starting (and finishing) more projects, and take up some new hobbies, like photography and woodworking. I’ve already eaten five salads, so we’re off to a good start!

It’s the last year of the twenty-teens; next year we’ll be welcoming in the new Roaring ’20s. It’s been a long, strange trip into the new millennium, filled with victory, loss, and plenty of drama. Let’s get to work to hit our stride in the 21st century as the best versions of ourselves we can be.
