Mental Health - How To Keep New Year's Resolutions
Making New Year's resolutions is easy. Keeping those resolutions is a challenge -- unless you learn some of the basic rules of self motivation. Don't make a resolution unless you think the change will make you happier and improve your life.
Here are some tips on making resolutions a little more manageable from The DMC Corporation, the leading manufacturer of Embroidery Floss and fine needlework threads:

- Tackle one resolution at a time. You're more likely to stick to your resolutions if you don't try and accomplish everything at once.
- Word your resolutions positively. Instead of resolving to "stop eating junk food," tell yourself that you'll "eat more healthy foods."
- Make a resolution to relax with a new hobby. Needlework, like cross-stitch, needlepoint and crochet, is a great way to get your mind off of your troubles and create something beautiful in the process. It's a proven stress reliever too. It's easier to follow through with other resolutions if you're not feeling "stressed out."
- Reward yourself for accomplishing your goals. If you lose five pounds, treat yourself to a new outfit, a massage, or a weekend getaway.
- Try not to punish yourself for a setback. It's understandable that you might miss a few days at the gym. Just make it up by going an extra day next week.
- Think positively. Failure is not falling down. It's falling down and not getting up again.
