Whew—we made it! 2013, done and dusted. 2014: beautiful blank slate. I always make a New Year’s resolution (or three. Why stop at one?). But I’ve wondered whether they really work—so I asked clinical psychologist John Norcross, author of Changeology: 5 Steps to Realizing Your Goals and Resolutions. Norcross, who has been studying the... Read more »

This year I want to take more time for myself and be less stressed. Last year, when I took a cruise to Bermuda I didn’t want to leave the island because it was so serene! Getting to spend my day by the beach and carefree was amazing. But, I definitely want to have a... Read more »

Our 2012 Resolutions from the Gifts Team

We’ve heard it all before, New Year, New You. And while making resolutions for 2012 can feel pointless, it’s important to start off the new year with reasonable goals for self-improvement. Think of it as a self-imposed clean slate. If you think you’re going to lose 20 lbs or change all of your bad... Read more »

Kick Start those Resolutions

Now that the holiday season is over, you no longer have a viable excuse for eating that much fruitcake. After all that overindulgence it’s time to revert back to some more conservative eating patterns, but it’s always harder each year. New Year’s resolutions really get kept, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying.... Read more »

With new year’s resolutions still fresh in our minds, most of us want to eat light to shed that holiday weight while still enjoying eating. My soups are always ‘stick to your ribs’ good without actually ‘sticking to your ribs’. Soups are the best way for me to watch what I eat without starving.... Read more »

2013 is my year of the slow cooker! I used to be the last person on earth who you would expect to dip a toe in the slow cooker pool, but here I go. It might seem a little odd to base a New Year’s resolution on a kitchen appliance, but I think getting... Read more »

Happy 2013!! It’s a New Year, time to start over and put forth new goals to accomplish. While making resolutions can sometimes feel pointless, it’s important to set reasonable and attainable goals.

Guru Resolution: Dress Like a Lady

In previous years, I have chosen unattainable resolutions like eating healthier, losing weight, saving money, and becoming fluent in a second language. I’m not persistent in achieving these goals so they always end up falling by the wayside well before spring. This year, I want to choose a goal that I can actually accomplish... Read more »

  They say that laughter is the best medicine and I am ready to put that saying to the test in 2013. Psychology Today says that, “it lowers anxiety, boosts the immune system, and aids circulation.” All of that sounds great! So, this year is all about me seeing the bright side of life....
