What NOT to Do in the New Year

Posted by in understanding men over 40 | 0 comments

Here’s what NOT to do in the New Year. Skip the resolutions, and do this instead. Trust me, your life will improve this year.

Happy New Year! Have you given some thought about what NOT to do in the New Year? That may sound strange, but as we all know, New Years resolutions don’t work. Most of us start out every year with goals; lose 10 pounds, find love, eat healthy food, join a gym…And most of those resolutions last a few weeks at best. We’re left feeling like failures. And that’s self-defeating.

If you want to improve your life and love, I suggest you make a list of what NOT to do in the New Year instead. Some habits can be hard to break, but if you make a list of what you want to stop doing, you can begin to create action steps around breaking those habits and having a better life.
