Willpower

AdvantagesWorks for me

Disadvantages-

"...on. I eat only what my body needs and not what my eyes desire. I became vegan because it makes me happy - others think I am being awkward at times but it is my choice and a lifetime commitment. I have stopped trying to control life and now I 'go with the flow' - it is so liberating to realise that you cannot control anything so why bother.

Can I do it? - Yes I can ... well maybe.

AdvantagesEasy to set resolutions.

DisadvantagesNot so easy to keep them!

"...I also intend to see what is on offer in the Ciao Café more often. 4. Reading. Whilst I was teaching I used to read a lot, partly as part of my job as an English teacher and partly as relaxation to wind down.

Energy saving resolution

Advantagessave energy, save climate, a good new year resolution to make

DisadvantagesNone

"The earth completed one more revolution around the sun and so did we. It is very hard to comprehend and accept the significance of the moment as we leave one year behind and step into a new year. Similarly, nothing special happened as I entered 2012 watching the live television broadcast of the firework concert at the Edinburgh Castle on the 31st night.
