You made a promise to live healthy. It's now August and you really didn't hit that promise out of the park. The summer living is over, and you have promised yourself to enjoy these last few weeks, then get back to healthy living.

Who and what belongs in your life during this season? Just like biting into a green fruit or an overly ripe one leaves a bad taste in your mouth, similarly things and people being out of season in your life is not a pleasant experience.

The Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) suggests to follow these five simple tips to set and keep your goals of choice throughout the year.
I like to call us resolutionaries. We are the people who have the best intentions and make great plans for the year to come. We will quit our bad habits and develop new and healthy ones.

Do you long for the good old days of childhood when things seemed much simpler, easier, more joyful and laid back?
