Who is a wired person and why would such a person need a New Year resolution?
In today’s world, most of us are wired people as we spend most of the day wired to one electronic gadget or another. We feel a compulsion to be connected not to other people in face to face conversation but to electronic devises that provide a feeling of empowerment, for example, computers, ipads, cell phones and so on.
New Year resolutions are the fad for most people each year, as they contemplate on what happened in their lives during the year and think of areas they want or need to improve on.
Many people make resolutions involving their health, exercise regimen, diet, finances, jobs, prayer life, church attendance and so on
Wired people are no different as they are most people in today’s world and consequently are in the New Year resolution making business.
Truly, it is that time of the year again when we look back at the current year and compare the resolutions we made for this year with our actual practice during the year. I hope you were able to keep some of your resolutions throughout the year.
If you were congratulations. If you fell off the wagon, you can try again next year. Maybe your goals were unrealistic or maybe some events occurred during the year that made it impossible for you to keep up with your resolution?
I hope you kept note of how you were doing all year long. If you did then it may be easy for you to determine what went wrong and look for ways to fix it, if it is still a realistically attainable objective.
If not, the good news is that now you have information to determine what went wrong and consequently make necessary changes in your resolution and/or lifestyle to ensure a better result in 2015.
If on the other hand you did not get into the New Year resolution bandwagon last year why not jump in for 2015 for health, financial or any other reason, you may want to make the coming year your turnaround-for-good year.
You may want to consider making a daily outside walk a goal. Another goal may be to avoid pastry such as cakes, ice cream and other sugar-laden foods. You may also want to make brushing your teeth after you eat anything a goal.
Have you considered an idea such as drinking only pure water a goal. This will help you avoid dehydration one of the inherent effects of computer use many are unaware of.
These are a few simple suggestions to get you started. You see, your goal does not have to be something big. It is in the little things that we very often get into trouble and that are a good place to start.
