A Happy and Healthy 2009

Here’s wishing you and your families a happy and healthy 2009! 

Today will be a day chilling out on the settee for me, reading The Smelly Sprout, watching the other half play MarioKart on the Wii and messing with my awesome new rice cooker/slow cooker/steamer/porridge cooker gadget. 

For you enthusiastic souls straight on to New Year’s resolutions, I just wanted to post a couple of links.  I wrote last year all about Dave Seah’s Groundhog Day resolutions, an easy way to make your resoutions accountable by checking in with them once a month through the year (this one has the added bonus that you get January to research and plan, without having to leap straight into action today when you are probably feeling knackered and distinctly unfit).  Or you might prefer Chris Brogan’s approach of three memorable words to define three goals for the year.  This one is a new idea to me but makes a lot of sense; three simple words to apply to your decisions through the year, be they related to nutrition, healthy eating, sustainability or something else entirely.

Happy New Year, Sophie. I’m working my way through New Year’s posts. Very inspiring but few in number — I guess people are still sleeping off the night before.
Ooooh, I like your new hard-working, multi-tasking appliance. I have a small rice cooker that I wouldn’t want to live without.
I will check out the links you’ve recommended. I could use help making resolutions and a gradual pace works for me.

Thanks Elaine. I was very surprised myself to actually find the time to write something on the first (short and sweet as it was). My new gadget is just fantastic. I’m sure I will be writing about it lots later in 2009.
Happy New Year to you too Wendy!
Johanna – I’m glad it was useful to repost that link. I think it’s such a fantastic way of making resolutions and then actually sticking to them

Happy New Year Sophie!
I was telling someone about the 2/2, 3/3, 4/4 etc resolution process but could not remember where I had read it (or all the details!)
