Resolution Check In

Well it’s about 20 days into the New Year, time to check in and see how those resolutions are going. Did you resolve to do something differently this year? If so how are you doing? Are you sticking to your resolutions? If so, what has helped you succeed, if not, how come?

Experts say it takes about 30 days to make a new habit stick. Statistics show that only about 15% of New Year’s Resolutions are kept. Think that’s true or can we prove them wrong?

Are they working for you? Personally, I didn’t formally make too many resolutions this year, however, I did join a gym and have been going almost daily for 9 days now (21 more until it’s a habit).

If you’re finding it tough, be sure to check out this article that includes useful tips on ways stick to your New Year’s resolutions. We’d love to hear from you about how you’re doing. Tell us what has helped you or caused challenges in sticking to habits you’re trying to quit or start.  Let us know by leaving a comment here.

I decided to become more organized, but maybe I should have first chosen to stop procrastinating….. :)

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
