It’s that time of year. When the clock strikes midnight on December 31, wherever you are, a bunch of New Year’s resolutions will have been made. But can those resolution makers actually make good on their goals?
As one traverses the pathway of life, sooner or later, he or she realizes an inescapable fact: if you have your health you have everything. Filthy rich or dirt poor, life’s a downer when your health goes south.
Here are a few “good health” resolutions for 2016:
1. Lose weight. Don’t tote that extra 25 to 35 pounds around. Just puts an extra load on your system.
2. Stay in touch. Research indicates that keeping in contact with friends and family makes for a longer life.
3. Quit smoking. Need we say more?
4. Save money. How about car pooling, walking, or riding a bike? They each save a buck or two, as well as saving on pollution.
5. Cut stress. Life is stressful enough without making it self-induced. Stop dwelling on what you can’t solve. Learn to breathe deeply and simply walk away.
6. Volunteer. Don’t make it just about you. Help your fellow man. Find something you’re passionate about.
7. Drink a glass or two of Rutting Ridge Cabernet every day. Your heart will thank you.
8. Finally, If you’re a hunter or outdoor enthusiast, and you’ve been in search of a cause to support in 2016, let us recommend one: the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF). As you reflect on the past and look forward to the future, making a tax-deductible donation to wildlife and habitat conservation may just be right for you. And you can rest assured that RMEF will put your money to good use.
Cheers to a great 2016!
