monday mag - new years resolutions

Spring Into Those New Year’s Resolutions ~ Yes. That’s right. We should all elect to let go of bad behaviors and adopt a fresh attitude in Spring, not in the middle of winter. People who change their eating habits and begin exercise programs at the beginning of spring are more likely to maintain these new habits throughout the year and beyond. Plain logic, if you think about it. Survival instinct would have us stay in a rut in winter, for fear of depleting energy and calories much-needed to survive into spring. It is difficult to fight nature, and the frustration does not help any. So, throw away the guilt of having shelved those good intentions soon after the New Year’s fireworks and prepare to set your self-improvement goals upon the wave of fresh spring vigor.

We stumbled upon this little gem on a site called Uncommon Goods.
