Wisdom for the year ahead

As the new year approaches, here are 8 bits of wisdom to help make it a great year:

1. Focus on what’s ahead, not on past failures or regrets

2. Take care of your basic needs (sleep, exercise, healthy food, relaxation)

3. Socialize with positive people

4. Remember that challenges are temporary; things will get better

5. Seek emotional support from caring individuals or groups

6. Don’t take on other people’s negative feelings or opinions

7. Put yourself first

8. Look for “the lesson” when things are tough

Wishing you all a wonderful, growth-filled 2013!
