Resolutions and MS -- Question of the Week

Vicki Health Guide
  • What do you think about New Year’s Resolutions? Did you make one? If yes, how are you doing with that now?


    The long-time tradition of New Year's resolutions is practiced around the world, usually around the beginning of the year. In my personal blog I wrote about A New Beginning  around 2000 BC when the Babylonians’ resolutions were often returning borrowed farm equipment. Now, New Year’s Resolutions are more likely to focus on personal improvement.  Some popular resolutions focus on weight loss,  fitness, or even personal budgets, or maybe a goal such as taking a cooking class, leaning a new language or writing a book.

    I don’t think we need to be limit resolutions to January. Next month begins with April Fool's Day. What a great day to make a new resolution or start again with a new beginning. It is Spring, after all, the season of new life. Why not make a Spring resolution instead of a foolish prank on your friends.

     

    I like to read about other people’s resolutions.


    Early in my online relationship with Michael B. Gerber, I read a piece he wrote that has been my favorite for years. He simply resolved to do more. He explained his resolution in his personal blog, My New Year’s Resolution: To Do More, love more, laugh more, participate more.

     

    This is a good one for all of us, any time of year. I can always do more to improve my life, and to learn about new MS research and treatment. What about you?


    Do you make and keep resolutions? Have you read a resolution essay that made an impression on you? Or maybe written one? My springtime resolution this year is to write more. I enjoy writing and sometimes researching for articles.
