Resolve to keep your home healthier

Why your New Year’s resolutions fail. 
 Dear Jeremy ,

When I used to go to the gym regularly, I would always notice big crowds the first 2 weeks of January. The first time it happened, I told a friend, “Great, this place used to be nice a quiet at this time.” He said, “Just wait a couple weeks, it’s New Years.”
Sure enough, the gym got to be a quiet place of refuge again about the 3rd week of January. So why do so many fail at their New Year’s resolutions?
Here’s what Psychology Today tells us:
“Timothy Pychyl, a professor of psychology at Carleton University in Canada, says that resolutions are a form of “cultural procrastination,” an effort to reinvent oneself. People make resolutions as a way of motivating themselves, he says. Pychyl argues that people aren’t ready to change their habits, particularly bad habits, and that accounts for the high failure rate. 
 
Another reason, says Dr. Avya Sharma of the Canadian Obesity Network, is that people set unrealistic goals and expectations in their resolutions.”
Not really ready to change and unrealistic expectations…sounds like some of the goals I’ve set for myself in the past!
One tool I’ve found incredible effective was something I learned from the Zig Ziglar organization. Keep reading below and I’ll share it with you.
Resolve to start the new year off with a clean and healthy home!
Are you keeping your carpets, rugs, tile and upholstery professionally maintained yearly? If not, now’s the perfect time to start this good habit and clean up after those holiday guests.
