NEW YEAR, NEW YOU January 2022


Dear community members, Happy New Year! A couple months ago, a friend asked me if I have ever chosen a theme to focus on for each year. In considering the question and the state of our world, I landed on the word "abundance" as my theme for 2022. This might seem an odd choice, but let me explain. Call it confirmation bias, or call it "the secret", I find that whatever I focus on, I see more of in my life. So, if I focus on scarcity, lack, and shortage, I see more of the same in my life. I am feeling a drive to focus on fulfillment, plenty, and abundance as I move into the new year. In this new year, let the library be a place of abundance in your life. This month and next we are focusing on New Beginnings. Take charge of your finances with our series of events on financial management called Planning Your Money (sign-up required). Check out our new Baby Indoor Gym time for littles and their caregivers to get the wiggles out. We have a four week series to learn to draw to encourage you to tap into your right brain (registration required). And our take and create activities for all ages will continue as well. Take up Tai Chi and move your mind in new ways. Bring your instrument to the library on Thursday, January 13 from 4:30 to 7:00 for a jam session with members of Leftover Salmon, and don't forget to get tickets for their concert the next night at TACAW. Visit our website and events calendar for more information, dates, and times for all of our events in January. Keep your eye out for exciting new fiction from Isabel Allende, Lisa Gardner, Jaquelyn Mitchard, and Hanya Yanigahara. Take a look at upcoming new nonfiction from Dave Ramsey, Al Sharpton, Carl Bernstein, Jamie Raskin, and Valeri Bertinelli. So, from all of us to all of you, here's wishing you and yours a happy, healthy, and abundant 2022! Amy Shipley, Executive Director

10 Tips to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution by: Louise Smith Chances are at some time in your life, you’ve made a New Year’s resolution — and then broken it. This year, stop the cycle of resolving to make change and then not following through. If your resolution is to take better care of yourself and get healthy, you will have a much better year if your resolution sticks. Here are ten tips to help you get started. 1. BE REALISTIC The surest way to fall short of your goal is to make your goal unattainable. For instance, resolving to NEVER eat your favorite food again is setting you up to fail. Instead, strive for a goal that is attainable, such as avoiding it more often than you do now. 2. PLAN AHEAD Don’t make your resolution on New Year’s Eve. If you wait until the last minute, it will be based on your mindset that particular day. Instead, it should be planned well before December 31st arrives. 3. OUTLINE YOUR PLAN Decide how you will deal with the temptation to skip that exercise class or have that piece of cake. This could include calling on a friend for help, practicing positive thinking and self-talk, or reminding yourself how your “bad behavior” will affect your goal. 4. MAKE A “PROS” AND “CONS” LIST It may help to see a list of items on paper to keep your motivation strong. Develop this list over time, and ask others to

contribute to it. Keep your list with you and refer to it when you need help keeping your resolve. 5. TALK ABOUT IT Don’t keep your resolution a secret. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better or improve your health. The bestcase scenario is to find a buddy who shares your New Year’s resolution and motivate each other. 6. REWARD YOURSELF This doesn’t mean that you can eat an entire box of chocolates if your resolution is to eat a better diet. Instead, celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. If you have been sticking to your promise to eat better, for example, reward yourself with new fitness clothing or by going to a movie with a friend. 7. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS Keep track of each small success. Short-term goals are easier to keep, and each small accomplishment will help keep

you motivated. Instead of focusing on losing 30 pounds, focus on losing the first five. Keep a food journal to help you stay on track, and reward yourself for each five pounds lost. 8. DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day, and take one day at a time. 9. STICK TO IT Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity to become a habit and six months for it to become part of your personality. It won’t happen overnight, so be persistent and patient! 10. KEEP TRYING If you have totally run out of steam when it comes to keeping your resolution by mid-February, don’t despair. Start over again! Recommit yourself for 24 hours. You can do anything for 24 hours. The 24-hour increments will soon build on each other and, before you know it, you will be back on track.
