The new year is an opportunity to start afresh.  Did you make a resolution for 2014 that involves taking better care of yourself? Perhaps you resolved to manage your stress in a healthier way.  Research out of England has shown that it takes an average of 66 days to form a simple habit–that’s 66 days to make your resolution stick.  If you feel your resolve wavering, it may be helpful to write encouraging notes to yourself, to give yourself a pep talk, and to engage the support of family and friends so that you can stay on track.  Remember, in just a little over two months you will be closer to a healthier and happier you!
