January is almost over, have you made your resolutions for 2011 yet? Roughly 45% of us make New Year’s resolutions and the most popular ones have to do with losing weight, exercising more and stop smoking. While these are great resolutions and help our bodies in so many ways, I would like to suggest that adding a 'feel good’ resolution will make a difference in so many ways. These are resolutions that make us feel good spiritually or emotionally such as committing to working in a soup kitchen once a month. Think about how great you will feel knowing that you are helping so many people.
It’s not too late…add a ‘feel good’ resolution for 2011. Look for a cause that you are passionate about and find organizations that support it. Contact them and see which ones you are a good fit for and make a commitment to help them out. I’ll bet this is one of your resolutions that will beat the ‘ 50% of us abandon our resolutions by June’ statistic…this is one that provides rewards in so many different ways, it is sure to stick.
Not only will you meet new people and make a difference for so many, you will be surprised at how much better your 'feel good' resolution makes you feel. Where will you give your time this year?
