The End of A Decade

It’s New Years Eve day, and a time to take stock of the year that was, and the year to come. But this feels different, 2020 feels like a more momentous turn of the calendar – the beginning of a new decade, almost begging for more commitment to your resolutions in the New Year. What will you do?

Being in my fifty’s, one feels as though committing to a resolution holds more value then when I was younger. Perhaps it’s because, like most resolutions, people choose to improve their health. Many sign Christmas cards with “Health and Happiness” and as we age, this could not be more important. So, will this be the year you take your health, both physically and mentally more seriously? Little changes in your daily life can add up, don’t worry about the “go big or go home“ approach, that tends to lead to failure. Take one day at time – start walking every day, cut back on sugar, white flour and processed foods, and add more vegetables to your diet. These small changes don’t cost a lot, but in the end, can make a world of difference.

Wishing You A Very Happy And Healthy New Year from Nifty at Fifty!
