- Start the New Year off with help from Life Coach Laura Berman Fortgang -
NEW YORK, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The New Year is a time for making fresh starts and changing for the better. Internationally recognized life coach, Laura Berman Fortgang, is an expert at helping people make realistic resolutions and stick with them throughout the year. With Laura's tips on how to actually keep those ever-evasive resolutions, this year is sure to start brightly.
"Make a New Year's resolution for the right reasons, no matter what
your change may be. Do it for yourself and figure out what inspires you
from the inside and then devote yourself to it," says Laura. "There are
many small things you can do to help you stay motivated, commit to make
your change and achieve your long-term goals." Here, Laura shares seven
helpful tips to keep you smiling throughout the New Year:
-- Do a clean sweep. Take a weekend to get rid of things from your
office or your home that you don't use anymore. Break away from
clutter by letting go of unnecessary things once and for all.
-- Change your look and breathe new life into your appearance. Try
brightening your smile with a product like Crest Whitestrips Premium
that is only a seven day commitment. Recent clinical studies show it
has 2X more whitening per strip vs. the leading dissolving strips!
You'll smile more, and it will give you added confidence, keeping you
positive towards reaching bigger goals.
-- Choose one thing to boost your health and well-being. Instead of the
usual weight-loss goal, start with one new healthy habit and focus on
that until it really becomes a habit. Then add another. For instance,
drink six to eight glasses of water a day, add 20 minutes of walking
or add five fruits and vegetables to your diet daily.
-- Name a theme for your year. Give your year a clear focus and an
intention. The "Year of The New Career," "The Year of the Diva," "The
Year of Getting Fit" and "The Year of a Positive Attitude" are some
-- Do one thing a day towards your dream. Make a commitment to do one
thing daily, no matter how small, to move ahead a dream or project.
-- Give back. Raise money or volunteer your time to improve your
community or the condition of people who are in need of help. You'll
be surprised how good helping others will make you feel, and motivate
you to do good in your own life.
-- Recruit a cheering squad. Make sure you have good supporters in your
life to help you stay motivated to make your change. Teach the
naysayers how to be more helpful and call on your cheering squad
whenever you need them.
