you are like most Americans, you went into the New Year armed with well-intentioned
resolutions only to have your motivation fizzle out during the winter doldrums.
Now, it's time to renew those resolutions. After all, spring is the perfect
season for succeeding at many of the most popular resolutions.
Lose Weight: Whether it's
dropping a few pounds or dropping several dress sizes, losing weight consistently
ranks among the top New Year's resolutions. Take advantage of fresh spring
produce to whittle your waistline. Healthy eats such as asparagus and beets are
front and center this time of year along with delicious treats such as
tangerines and strawberries. For more low cal, high nutrient dishes visit Fitness.com.
Exercise: Take advantage of the longer days
and warmer weather to walk, run, swim or bike your way to better health. The
user-friendly advice from Prevention.com,
arms you with everything
from tips on stretching to gear to workouts; you'll be out and about and fitter
in no time.
Adopt a Healthier Lifestyle: Whether it's the
desire to kick cigarettes or alcohol or merely to adopt healthier habits such
as an "early to bed, early to rise" lifestyle, spring is a time of
rejuvenation. Reboot your circadian rhythms to promote
energy and decrease stress and replace
unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption with healthy
alternatives. Think about reaching for a picnic basket for al fresco dining after
a tough day of work, rather than a cigarette. Replace unhealthy habits with
healthy stress busters. Read on for healthy, fun spring
activities that can help give
bad habits the boot. C'mon, you can do it!
Save Money: Who doesn't want to
squeeze value out of every dollar?
Spring is the perfect time to get more bang for your buck. Vacation
getaways are more wallet-friendly as the end of Easter marks the start of discounted
vacation packages in warm weather getaways like the Caribbean. And think
long-term: refinance your mortgage before rates head up this summer and if you
received a tax refund, adjust tax withholding to ensure that more money is in
your paycheck each month, rather than going to Uncle Sam.
Get Organized: At Pendaflex, we are
advocates of year-round spring cleaning but spring is a great time to double
your efforts. Swap out winter clothes and gear for warm weather goods and be
sure to donate or recycle items no longer in use. Purge your paperwork and
piles while you're at it. A lighter load around the house translates to a freer
mind. Declutter to destress!
How are your New Year's resolutions holding up? Will
spring's season of renewal restore your resolution motivation? Share your
