My New Year`s Resolution! 2010

Okay, I know it can be hard to come up with worthy resolutions for the new year, so I thought I’d give you a bit of help. Remember, goals & resolutions are totally different. Goals can be defined as “what by when“, while a resolution is somewhat more ephemeral. A resolution is light-hearted, something you do for fun. A guideline, rather than a hard-&-fast line. Here are some ideas, but if you already know what your resolutions are, feel free to post them in the comments below! I’d love to hear them.

Mine here...^o^
* Lose weight
* Get out of debt
* Become more organized (spcl laundry aww)
* Maintain a diary
* Save money (posible 500 or 1000 yen everyday ^0^)
* Pray everytime, go to church weekly
* Get a better job
* Start yoga or meditation
* Beautiful everyday, things make every day beautiful
* Make 3 new friends or more ^0^
* Go outside with kids and talk to neighbors
* Less computer
* Reduce stress
* Take a trip
* Volunteer to help others
* Be less grumpy (anger)
* Choose a role model & then think, “What Would ____ Do?”
* Learn something new (such as a foreign language, music or names of flowers)
* Try to get up early in the morning
* Time management
* Help the poor
* Do it interior creative everyday


New Year's parenting resolutions

This time of year, we parents reflect on everything we have — and all the ways we could do better by our kids. After all, who among us hasn't vowed to lose our temper less and show our kids we love them more?

Parents have told us that, among other resolutions for the new year, you'd like to:

• Not yell so much

• Stop using threats to keep your kindergartner or grade-schooler in line

• Be more loving — and find other ways to help your 5-year-old or 6- to 8-year-old feel good about himself

• Slow down and really listen to your child

• Give each of your children the one-on-one time he deserves

• Find more family time

• Plan fun outings more often

• Read more with your child — whether he's a beginning, intermediate, or advanced reader

• Watch less TV

• Make healthier meals

• Encourage your child's relationship with grandparents

• Share your beliefs with your child and — if religion or spirituality is important to your family — make them part of your family life, traditions, and rituals

• Nurture yourself so that you can better nurture your child.
