If one really wants to make a major change in his life, why wait until Jan 1?
I'm going to start by giving up all products with high-fructose corn syrup. And I'm also going to stop drinking energy drinks (such as Rockstar and Red Bull) at the same time.
And I am going to start right now.
So, if you have a new year's resolution in mind, keep in mind that waiting until the new year is a symptom of not actually wanting to make that change. Don't wait - dive right in. You'll be happier for it.
