Yes, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is jingling and tinselling towards us – I saw Santa in my road last night. Close on its heels is New Year, a time of celebration, reflection, anticipation and resolutions. When we gravely vow to become more like the person we feel we should be, give up vices and forsake guilty pleasures. If we’re honest, how long do we stick to this promise? 2 weeks, maybe 3 at the most.

So what’s the point of that? It’s a waste of everyone’s valuable time. So in 2014 I propose a different resolution. Rather than trying to be someone else and setting unrealistic goals, why not celebrate what and who we are. Let’s make 2014 the ‘Be good to yourself’ year. After all, we deserve it. There – you’re feeling better already, aren’t you?

So give yourself a treat. Why not do something new, something special. Make 2014 the year you:

OK, I got a bit carried away there, but you get my drift. If there’s not at least one item in that list that tempts you maybe you should check your pulse! The good news is that any of these, and others too, could be yours in 2014.
