Phew!! We made it through the chaotic, overwhelming holiday season. Now it's time to look forward and think about the new year a head. By the time our next issue comes out, it will be 2015. I actually can't believe that and I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way.

Right about this time of year I start to think of what my New Year's resolutions will be. Like many people I tend to make many of them but keep very few, if any. This year (like every year) I think of a ton of "resolutions" I want to make. Loose weight, exercise more, spend more quality time with my children, watch less TV, read more, and the list goes on and on. I know this type of thinking doesn't work because I so rarely am able to keep up with all of them.

Check out the article in this weeks issue, " The Science Behind Successful New Year's Resolutions". It gives simple and easy tips to making resolutions that will actually stick in the new year. The best piece of advice is less is more. Really take the time to think about what you want for the new year, narrow down that list, and think of concrete ways you are going to make those (few) resolution happen. My advice is don't give up... if you have one bad day or even a bad week that doesn't mean you need to stop working towards that goal, wake up the next day ready to work towards that goal again!

We wish you and your families and very Happy New Year and we look forward to sharing more great content from the web with you in 2015!
