Failed New Years Resolutions

Failed New Years Resolutions turned into Successful New Year’s Resolutions

We all know people who make the same resolutions year after year? Or maybe we are that person.

-Have embarrassing failed New Years Resolutions taught you to be quiet and private about resolutions?
-Did it sound good at the time, but you didn’t think it through, or have enough ‘willpower’?
-Were your goals unrealistic and fated to fail?
-Did you think you could immediately overcome a habit that you’ve spent years developing?
-Did life get in the way so you had a good excuse to quit?
-Have you chosen to not make resolutions this year or given up on resolutions altogether? … Is that your trouble, Bunkey?

Well, hold your head up – Because there’s hope this year!  And, studies show, people who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals!

What is self respect?


Respect is something that is developed and nurtured.  Respect for one’s self and for others is a valued asset that should not be under appreciated.

Respecting others is often easier to do than taking care of ourselves.  When we respect others, we show them that they are important to us. Wikipedia describes respect as “a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Etc.)  However that shows up, it means a lot to the other person.  This respect shows up in a variety of ways and most of them go without words.  Being kind is a show of respect.  Working within someone’s boundaries is a show of respect.  Being punctual and on time for appointments is a way to show that you respect that person and appreciate their time.

Learn to love what you see in the mirror.

Self respect can be a more difficult matter.  What is self respect? It appears in the way we take care of our selves, how we present to others.  In the way of showing care for others and their wants and needs, we are also showing love and respect for ourselves.

Things that we do for ourselves may appear to us or others as being self-indulgent.  However demonstrating to others that we value ourselves and our own happiness is a great way to show that as we value ourselves, we can also value others.

The following is a list of things that we can and should do for ourselves to show respect for body, mind and soul:

☼     Meditate or pray daily.  Getting into our spiritual selves is important to peace and happiness.  As we meditate more (and more often) we get to a place of stillness and self love and appreciation.


☼     Cultivate good, upstanding  friends.  Association with loving souls helps us to build our own self esteem.   We adapt to our environment, so create a healthy, respectful circle of friends.


☼     Exercise regularly.  Taking time for ourselves to move and relieve stress is a great way to respect ourselves and maintain good health.

☼     Play often.  Let your self go and just do something fun.



☼     Eat healthy foods.  This may not seem to be a way to respect one’s self, but fueling the body with live foods and avoiding processed foods tells your body down to the cellular level that it is loved and respected for what it does continually.   If you cannot or do not eat well, consider supplementing with vitamins and proteins.

Find other ways to develop a sense of respect for yourself and for those around you.  I think you will begin to see your life change for the better.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about immune system health.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about immune system health.

When the immune system is mentioned, often peoples’ minds go to extremes, thinking of AIDS or some other devastating condition.  Many immune system disorders are life-changing or life-threatening.  But everyone should be concerned about maintaining a healthy, strong system of defense against invaders to the body.

Your immune system is at work 24/7 to guard against foreign intruders to your body so that you don’t get sick.  This activity can help keep you from getting the sniffles, a cold or a more debilitating condition such as the flu or even hepatitis.

With the immune system up and running strong, these invaders are stopped before they can get a foothold on your cells and begin to destroy them and make you sick.  There are cells that run reconnaissance missions looking for the intruders.  There are immune system cells that take the information from the others and create antibodies to kill them off.   There are immune system cells that simply “eat” the invaders on site, inGet Healthy a search and destroy mission. These are only a few of the activities that the immune system does.


We also have to be aware of some things that can impact the system’s ability to do its job.




            Nutrition levels

            Healthy activity levels

Obviously, we cannot do anything about our age, but the others are lifestyle related and we can take actions in those areas that will help to build up our immune systems and fight off illness more effectively.  De-stressing your life and getting plenty of sleep are very important.  Taking time for an effective amount of exercise without going to the extremes is key to keeping your defense mechanisms mobile.  Getting enough of the right nutrition is a challenge, but can be done with supplementation when eating right is not happening.  The good news is that all these changes or adaptations to our lifestyles have many side benefits.  Targeting your immune system will help you to enjoy better health in other areas of your life.  Just pay attention to your body and notice the improvements.

Shaklee Corporation produces a couple of products that work directly with your immune system.   Click Get Healthyhere to learn about Nutriferon and Defend & Resist. Shaklee also offers a money back guarantee.  Try it here.

Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, asks “Where do you get your exercise?”

Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, asks “Where do you get your exercise?”

It is common knowledge that we need to move our bodies and get plenty of exercise.  To a lot of people this is only viewed as buying expensive workout clothes and gear, paying a large gym membership fee or taking a lot of time out of their day.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  With a little creativity and forethought, one can realize that more of his daily, hum-drum activities can and already do include exercise.

Many people don’t drink enough water because it may require extra trips to the restroom.  Think of it this way:  That 5 minute break from your desk to the toilet involves standing (weight bearing), stretching (range of motion) and walking (circulation).

I had a friend state that she didn’t want glass shower doors because she didn’t want to have to squeegie them each time the shower is used.  That arm lifting and squatting is great exercise.

There is also the “use the stairs” and “park further away” ideas to help increase your movement during the day.  The bottom line is to reverse your thinking about those boring daily chores and turn them into “micro workouts“.

So take good care of your body and your mental state. Give yourself credit for all the “moving and shaking” that you do without realizing it.

Be well.Perform well. Stay well.
