Set yourself free.
Don't resort to the usual patterns that have ruled your life. Let them go. Let people go who drag you down or make you feel miserable.
Leave it all behind and let this new year bring magic and wonder to your life. Don't make resolutions you now will be difficult to keep, instead make a declaration of wise choices which will set your resolve and will power. Write it out and keep it.
Use positive words, phrases etc. Don't say 'I must go on a diet' instead declare you are going to make healthy food choices/or include more colour on your plate/or you will eat one more portion of fruit each day. Be positive and live free.
