New Year, Better You!

The New Year brings an opportunity to take a fresh look at the challenges we’ve been facing and a chance to work on them again. Here are a few suggestions for some achievable goals for the new year:

The No. 1 New Year’s resolution in any year is getting in shape: There is no real mystery here – it all comes down to diet and exercise. It is a fact that 95 percent of those who try to crash diet the pounds off are not successful in the long run. Try simple changes to eliminate calories, like reducing your portions by just 10 percent and adding just 20 minutes of a simple exercise like walking to your daily routine.

Try to be a better listener: Whether at home or at work, listening is a gift you can give that costs you nothing. Listening does not involve solving the other person’s dilemma – that is their job. When offering support by listening actively, you can give family and friends just what they need to approach their own concerns in a new way.

Consider volunteer work: There is certainly no shortage of need in the world – resolve to do your part to make the world a better place. If you choose a volunteer activity like helping rehab a home for the homeless or coaching a baseball team, you get the benefit of adding exercise as you help the world.

Take a look at your financial health: Now is a good time to make sure you have the right amount of life and property insurance to protect yourself or your family. Consider whether you are a candidate for long-term care insurance. Check your investments to see if they are in line with your long-term goals. Take a look at your credit history and resolve to reduce high-interest debt.

For those with young children, try to take the words “hurry up” out of your vocabulary: Sit yourself down and strategize ways to make your morning and bedtime routines a little slower and saner. Your kids will thank you.

Minimize Student Debt – Search for Scholarships

While the new Free Application for Federal Student Federal Aid (FASFA) application is open, you might look at other ways to finance your college education.  Consider looking at scholarships to help fund your education.
Scholarships can play a role in paying for your education, and the time is right now.
When you’re looking at scholarships, it’s important to find a good fit. Look at what town you are from and what major you are going for; many scholarships are targeted to your background and your academic or even extracurricular interests.  Please view the list of scholarships here.
