It is the start of a new year, and with it comes an opportunity to change behaviors, break bad habits or to simply re-evaluate what is important to you. We all have 365 days in 2017 to make a difference for ourselves and for others – so let’s make good use of each day!
Establishing a list of resolutions can help you stick to your goals or just give you a way to organize your thoughts to see what you want from 2017.
