EXTENSION CONNECTION: Start New Year’s resolutions small

Published: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 10:52 AM.

After a few weeks, and you still have some breath from your run, up the ante. 

Run four times around the block, but try four to five times a week. Not only will your stamina improve, but you will notice a difference in weight as well. You will feel a lot more energetic — a plus particularly if you have children.

Another top resolution is to get organized — now this is a hefty feat!

It can be overwhelming when trying to organize your life, family and household items, but fear not: you can do it.

I would begin with my finances. Spend 30 minutes on Saturdays going through that huge pile of papers that has been building up and put the bills where they belong.

Don’t spend more than 30 minutes; you may begin to feel overwhelmed. Once the half-hour is up, you will feel some success — probably when you put that pile away and see a clean, non-cluttered spot.

I bet you will feel like a million bucks!
