With the New Year, most of us dream up resolutions that we strive to commit to in order to better ourselves and our overall well-being. New Year’s resolutions aren’t meant to end if we have difficulties along the way. We can use resolutions as tools to serve as gentle reminders to be present and mindful, to take life day-by-day, and to be patient with ourselves as we grow. We can start with small acts that, with time, will improve our overall mental and physical health.
