Lots of people make resolutions on or before New Year’s day, but not so many people carry them out successfully. But that doesn’t mean that we should not try. The mayor of Oklahoma City has taken on a great resolution to try to help his obese city (they are ninth in the USA) to lose one million pounds collectively. I have given some suggestions on how individuals can lose weight, and you can read about them.
Similarly if you want to give up smoking, then now is also a good time to do it. I wrote a book about this subject and you can look a the introduction to it on the web.
So, it is a New Year, it is time to open up a new chapter in our lives. I hope we are all successful in this endeavor.
