New Year’s Resolutions that Make a Difference

New Year’s Resolutions that Make a Difference

New Year’s Resolutions are so hard to keep.  Health clubs and exercise classes are always packed in January but drop off by the beginning of March.  Good intentions to do one thing or another- eat healthier, get organized, save more money, are hard to maintain.

 

It is difficult to create new habits that lead to real change.  Instead of all the “same old, same old” resolutions- how about a suggestion for an attainable one?   Do some good.

Last night on social media, many friends were posting quotes appropriate for the new year, new beginnings, and change.  This one from Anne Frank resonated with me.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before beginning to improve the world- Anne Frank

 

Here are some places to start from my School Zone posts of 2012:

 

What is your New Year’s Resolution?  Do you know of any other organizations or people that are improving the lives of children or helping improve the field of education?

  • I really, really love that quote. I want to make sure I remember it in June, when resolutions seem so far away. One of my resolutions is to use more positive reinforcement.

    Here's a post I did on ProActive Kids - a group working to help kids be healthy: http://www.chicagonow.com/tween-us/2012/08/program-helps-tweens-and-their-families-fight-obesity/

    Happy New Year!
