How are those old New Year's resolutions going?

I mean those early 2007 promises you made to yourself to eat healthier foods, exercise more and practice balance in all areas for your professional and personal life. It's not easy so easy to stay on track – is it?

There are all those road-blocks along the way – procrastination, family obligations, work demands and the lack of time and energy. And these are only a few of the culprits that can stop the best resolutions right in their tracks.

Take heart, it is never too late to adopt some healthier habits and bring balance to your busy life.

Good health and wellbeing can be maintained through acceptance, compassion, resolution and humour. Basic needs such as sleep, diet, relaxation and exercise are also essential ingredients in promoting a well balanced life. By selecting and incorporating just one good health habit you can continue to keep well, relaxed and happy with life.

So get back on track and follow a few of the simple habits listed here – each and every day. Make this a commitment to yourself. It's time for a new you to find health, balance and inspiration.


Keep a daily journal that includes your daily food plan.

Read more, learn a new skill or practice meditation.


Walk 15 to 30 minutes each day.

Stretch the whole body before you rise each morning.


Be kind and helpful to friends and family in need.

Count your blessings daily – morning and evening.
