8 New Year’s Resolutions to Make as a Family

This year, forget about resolving to lose weight, save money, or drink less. While all of those are good things to do, making the same resolutions year after year becomes so ho-hum and nearly impossible to achieve.

What about setting some goals that the whole family can work toward and attain together? It will likely be easier to stick with them because multiple people will be involved. Here are eight New Year’s resolutions you can make as a family.

Check out the article below I wrote for +The Huffington Post and get 8 great ideas for family resolutions this year.

A little reminder that what we say and how we behave towards others says far more about us than it does them.

At times it can feel like there’s never enough money or we’ll never have what the Jones’ have. Well, in reality, we don’t need as much as we think we do, and the Jones’ may be in debt up to their eyeballs trying to keep up their image. This list has some great ideas to realize you have enough already. I love 1 & 5 – how about you? What are you favorites?

Anger is exactly like an iceberg – it has so many other hidden emotions below the surface. Next time, stop for a moment and try to identify what you’re feeling underneath the anger. If we can identify what we’re feeling that’s triggering anger, it can help us better manage our anger and keep us from saying or behaving in a way we’ll later regret.

Even when we aren’t feeling anxious, there are times when we need to ground ourselves. This list is a great way to help us stop for a minute, take a breath, pay attention to what’s around us, and refocus. Give it a try today!

Have you ever been in Starbucks and the person in front of you paid for your drink? So, in turn, you buy the person behind you their drink? Kindness tends to have a domino effect - one act of kindness leading to another. But it ultimately starts with just one person. Why not you?

Counseling can seem costly. But just like with plumbers or painters, if you decide strictly by price, you could end up paying far more in the end because the job wasn’t done right. Look for someone you can trust and be comfortable with, but also for someone who has the specialty and expertise in the area you need most. You may end up spending less than you think because you’ll have received the right help the first time.

Learn How to Make Him Want You

Most advice on how to make him want you is going to focus on your appearance and sexuality. Lose weight, get a breast enlargement or false eye lashes, be willing to have more sex. But the reason, or more likely reasons, he doesn't want you are usually much more complicated.

Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of using sex as a way to measure the status of their relationship. When their partner loses interest in sex they take that to mean they've lost interest in them. As a result, it's easy to think that how you make him want you is all about how you look.

Click the article below from our blog to learn how to make him want you when it's about more than just sex.

At times we may think or feel that our life is out of our control. While we can’t control every aspect of our lives, we can control what we think and how we feel. And we can decide at any time that we’ve had enough of either one -- a thought or feeling -- and change them. Just like that.

While this was designed for kids, it’s a great reminder for our relationships too. It’s so easy to get caught up in trying to make our partners want, feel or do what we want, completely forgetting that we can really only control ourselves.
