EXTENSION CONNECTION: Start New Year’s resolutions small

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

Remember: this is a process, not a one-day job. Time is precious, so use it wisely. Once you have accomplished one section, move onto another.

Finally, take the pressure off “New Year’s” resolutions. Resolutions can be made daily, not just on Jan. 1.

When you realize you can make changes in your life any day of the year, New Year’s resolutions will be easier to make, stick to, and follow through with.

In 4-H, youth learn life skills they need to make resolutions and follow through with them daily. 

As adults, role models and parents, it is our job to set the example. We need to show them that year round, we have the opportunities to make a difference and Jan. 1 is a great reminder of that!

 Every child should experience what 4-H offers. Have the experience of a lifetime! 

If you have any questions about the 4-H program, call the Okaloosa County Extension office at 689-5850.
