Homework:  2016 resolutions

     I'm back from an extended hiatus break.  The missing months that I have not been producing new postings, I was enjoying life and taking a much needed vacation during the summer to my mother's homeland, Thailand.  I was visiting almost the entire country and cross the border to one of the country's neighbor, Laos.  Thailand was a trip of a lifetime that required extensive amount of research and travel booking.

     Besides the mini vacation, I was just doing the daily grind of "survival" working.  Now, I'm ready looking forward to upcoming new things and get back in the habit of updating my blog.  

     I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and hope the start of the New Year 2016 brings you all peace, happiness, prosperity, and blessings.

     January 1st of the new year starts off most people's resolutions.  Do you have any to share? 

Here are a few things to chew on in helping you jump start ideas for 2016:

Discover a new passion
Everyone has an inner desire they love to do or wanting to seek a new goal in life.  Learn something new that would be fulfilling and expand the mind.  

Focus on what's important
Eliminate the things you don't need before another year piles on.

Travel more
Traveling to different places within one's own country or abroad would help boost your mood, and help you relax.

Quit smoking
Getting rid of cigarettes can help cut your health risk down from being sick.  The most effective way is going cold turkey. 

Listen to your favorite music
Music can be uplifting and put you in a better mood.

Be healthier
Eat more vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices.  Drink more water.  Exercise, walk, or utilizing the stairs more.  Socialize.

Quit drinking or at least cut back tremendously
Obsessively drinking alcohol puts your kidneys and liver at a dangerous risk in malfunctioning.

Treat yourself
Rewarding oneself would boost your confident levels and encourage you to do even better.  Another way to up lift the mind, body, and soul.

Turn back the years
Stress and the daily bad eating habits plays a significant role on making us look older than what age we actually are.  Decide what makes you stress and eliminate it.  Choose the right beauty products and foods.  Read labels.  Get the necessary sleep the body needs.

Cutting the sugar
Be creative in making your own sweets and juices.  Sugary foods hinders the body to help function at its best.

     My goals for 2016 are:

  1. Purge and organize my home
  2. Learn a new skill or craft (video/digital editing)
  3. Utilize my cookbooks and food magazines (creating new dishes) 
  4. Continue to travel
  5. Volunteer
  6. Extend family
  7. Exercise - yoga 
  8. Cutting the sugar
  9. Gaining more weight (yes, I said it)

Hopefully, these ideas will have you decide your 2016 goal.

                                                Happy New Year 2016!
