Stepping From 2012 Into 2013

I’m looking forward to 2013 and I hope you are, too.  I’m eager to take those steps into a fresh year, starting out with a clean slate.  While I usually have a list ready by the first of the year—call it resolutions, goals, or a To-Do list—this year I’m doing something different. My goal is to have a leaner list of things to be done.  I’m resolving to be less stressed, less over-committed, and more living in the moment.

I must admit I don’t know how long this lifestyle will last.  I’ve always been an overachiever.  But the time has come for me to decompress.  How about you?  Are you feeling like you’ll never be caught up or are you feeling frustrated by too much to do?  Allow yourself some time to unwind.  Free your mind of clutter.  Focus on the important things in your life.  That’s what I’m resolving to do. 

I found this great article, Live In The Moment, which gives useful tips for living in the moment and the benefits of living in the moment.  Believe it or not, I think these practices will help us be more productive.  Wishing you and yours a meaningful New Year.  Start the year out right, step from 2012 into 2013 with less stress.
