New Year is a time when all of us are in an excited state of mind, thinking about the new things and events, which the upcoming year has in store for all of us. It is also that time of the year when most of us decide to do something concrete with our lives. Popularly called as the "New Year Resolutions", these are in most of the cases left hanging either half way through or we don't even start on it.
Every new beginning has elements of positive vibes, and this paves the way for a human being to be in an ideal state of mind during the beginning of the year and thereby enabling them to make firm resolutions for the upcoming year.

To ensure that we maintain a good physique, we should undertake at least some minimum form of physical workout. When we undertake different forms of physical activities like Yoga, Tai Chi, weight lifting, running or swimming, we develop our stamina and strength levels which in turn helps us to balance our physical and mental being. Exercises have to be rightly timed and we need to ensure that we don't over-do it or under-do it.
Most of us don't understand the importance of us being optimistic and staying happy, we usually end up cribbing, and thereby pushing ourselves into a gloomy state of mind.

The ideal yet practical way to achieve our goals be it our health or even work-related, is to start small and maintain a routine. Time plays a crucial role in every aspect of our life and it is to be understood that, when we start working to develop a healthy lifestyle and achieve fitness it takes time to reach our goal and we shouldn't lose heart over the time being taken and abandon the measures taken, but rather work on it patiently.
