From: Mystical Earth GalleryIt happened. Just admit it. On New Year's Eve you put the silly party hat on, popped a bottle of the "bubbly," and then sang Auld Lang Syne in your loudest, prettiest singing voice. Confess it...you then made a few resolutions for the New Year.
My three resolutions are among the top 10 resolutions made by Americans. I am going to lose at least a few pounds, perhaps even more. I want to slow life down a little and focus on the things that really matter. friends, and family. I am going to take care of my spiritual, physical and mental health by eating better and sleeping more. Also included in the top 10 New Years' resolutions are quite smoking, enjoy life more, quit drinking, get out of debt, learn something new, help other and get organized. All are admirable goals.
New Year's resolutions are made by 40 to 45 percent of the American population. Seventy-five percent of us will keep those resolutions for one week; 71 percent of us keep them for two weeks; 64 percent of us keep them for one month; and 456 percent of us will keep those resolutions for six months. The good news for those of us making resolutions is that we are 10 times more likely to succeed at our goals than those folks who do not make New Year's resolutions.
It sure would be nice to have a little more help when it comes to keeping our resolutions and succeeding at our goals. The properties nad attribures ofminerals and crystals may just be the extra firepower we need to help us reach our goals. Here are the top 10 resolutions made with those minerals that will help us get there just a little bit easier:
