TOP 10 2012 NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS With the coming of a fresh year people always strive hard to have a good beginning. Every year most of us make unique and new resolutions. We plan it well and stay determined to fulfill those resolutions. But somehow only a few have the relentlessness to keep up their resolutions. Throughout 2011, many people made various resolutions. Some of them might have succeeded and others couldn’t because of the simple reason that they did not try hard enough to fulfill them. No matter how successful you were in 2011, the new year, 2012 will be your year to have a new beginning and start with a fresh zeal. If you haven’t made your list of resolutions yet, here are the top 10 New Year’s resolutions for 2012 to see if they can be applied to your life. 1. Lose Weight This is probably one of the resolutions which are common to many people who always dream of having a beautiful and lean body. Was this one of your resolutions from past year? If so, be encouraged this year to follow it until you see positive results. Make a plan of what you will give up (late night snacks, that extra meal) in exchange for a lean body. You only have to make this shift once in your lifetime to get lasting results.

2. Getting Organized Punctuality & organization is very crucial in life. People should always organize things accordingly and never delay any work what so ever. Work planning is very important both in office & also in home. The 2011 resolution must also include being organized and well planned. This will not only help in becoming a disciplined person but can also help in earning appreciation. In life problems are inevitable but handling these problems in planned & organized way is the main thing. Therefore a person’s resolution must include being disciplined. Simple things such as making a daily goal list before you start the day can go a long way.

3. Spend Less, Save More How did you do financially in 2011? Before you buy something, always spend some time justifying the reason.

4. Enjoy life to the Fullest Life comes once and should be enjoyed as much as possible in the right way.

5. Staying Fit and Healthy Staying physically and mentally fit should be another important resolution which can change your life positively and effectively.

Josh Brown

6. Learn Something Exciting Time waits for none and it should never be wasted.

7. Quit Smoking Smoking is injurious to health and it is known to all. Many people cannot give up smoking even after trying a lot. If you’re still addicted, your 2012 resolution should be to quit smoking.

8. Helping Others in Their Dreams It always feels very nice to know that our actions can make other people smile & this is something to be proud about. You can help others in 2011 with your time and skills.

9. Fall in Love Love is a wonderful feeling that comes from within. It’s never too late to fall in love.

10. Spend More Time with Family Spending time with the family gives a person a chance to know each other, share feelings, share joy & sorrow. This is an important resolution that will give you fulfillment in life.
