The New Year is a perfect time to start a fresh, leaving all regrets behind and starting a new chapter in our lives. If you want 2012 to be a successful year for you and your family then read on, and see how you can start the year in a positive way! 1 Set goals of what you want to achieve – Setting goals will help you stick to your target, and keep you focused on what you are trying to achieve. For example if you are wanting to bring the family closer together then set aside specific time to spend with them each week. Make sure you note the progress you are making along the way to keep you motivated and you’ll find it a whole lot easier to reach your final goal! 2 Map out a timescale – When making resolutions or attempting to change habits, we often expect too much of ourselves and can end up being disappointed. Make sure that you set yourself a realistic timeframe to achieve whatever it is you want to do. Don’t take on too much at once, you won’t be able to change things overnight! 3 Plan your finances – Many families will struggle financially over the next year, however this doesn’t have to rule your life if you don’t let it. Planning and recording all your finances can take a lot of the stress out of life, and will allow you to see exactly how much you have to spend each month. You may even find that you identify things you can cut back on, saving you valuable pennies 4 Learn something new as a family – As a family you are likely to have similar interests and hobbies, and taking up something new together can bring you closer together and build a stronger relationship with each other. You may find that a new sport or activity takes the stress of family life away and allows you to create some valuable memories 5 Most of all remember to have fun together! Many families get stuck in the same routines of sitting at home watching television or doing their own separate things at home, and these things can affect the amount you communicate. Try doing something that you can all enjoy, whether you are stuck indoors or going out – you may find you start getting on a lot better than before!! Finally we would just like to say a big thank you for being with Psychic Light in 2011, we hope you have a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year. We will be here to support you through 2012, whatever your future holds.
