Happy New Year of the Tiger! 8DDDDDDD
I read recently that the motto for people of the Year of the Tiger is “I win.” I assume that Years of the Tiger are accompanied with many successes? :D;;
If so, this is the perfect year for New Year Goals.
Goals of the New Year:
-Take good-and-slash-or better care of yourself! I can’t stress this enough! Nowadays people get stressed or overwhelmed or busy, or terrible combinations of everything and that eventually takes a toll on our bodies (and in a lot of cases, that creates more stress; not a pleasant cycle).
Organize some things a bit more (set goals about when you should start your diet, when you should end your diet, when you should go on vacation, when you should visit the doctors….) and you might be surprised at how much better you feel!
And another thing: make regular check-ups. And maybe not just regular, either; when you feel something is out-of-order or when there’s something going around that you don’t want to catch.
One last thing: Alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs? A positive no-go. (Before anyone starts with the “A glass a day is good for your heart,” this is not necessarily true—in each glass, there’s a 12% increase of the chances of getting breast cancer in women.)
-Do know your limits! With the exception of breathing, digesting, and most other bodily-functions, everything must be done in moderation. Urvreetheeng. Even health food, exercise, reading, and surfing the ‘Net.
Don’t trust me?
…You should. Why would I lie to you? I love you!
Don’t look at me like that. You love me, too. 83
-Just be nicer. You’ll get a lot more out of it than by being anything else! (Know there is such a thing as being too nice, though :D;; )
The above goals were more or less intended for myself, though any number of people can “use” them if they’d like.
The below, however, is just a slight reminder for myself, but I’d recommend it to anyone who has equal or lesser coordination than me:
-Stop drinking milkshakes in the bathtub. It is only delicious momentarily; then you spill it everywhere and the water becomes chocolatey.
(Likewise, it is a terrible idea to read while eating a milkshake in the bathtub. :| )
