A new year always starts with the best intentions. In every aspect of our life, there are goals set, improvements to be made, and a gung-ho attitude that permeates our every thought and action. The spirit of a new beginning can do wonders for the heart, mind, and soul … until March, or April, when some of our resolutions have fizzled along with the embers of our cozy holiday fires. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Resolutions can be simple actions that don’t require too much effort, and in that sense, can be easier and more realistic to both attain and maintain.
