We all have things in our lives that we’d like to do better: exercise more, eat healthier, feel better, have more energy or a better attitude, etc. In fact, most of us have made New Year’s resolutions along these lines– “I’m going to work out 5 days per week”, “I’m going to read more”, or the countless other things we hope to accomplish or change in our lives. Yet, so often by January 15 these resolutions are nothing but a distant memory. Why is this?
