When a New Year begins, there’s always something compelling about making New Year’s resolutions. Maybe it’s because we want the New Year to be the best one yet, or maybe we need something to focus on during the remaining cold months of winter besides moving to a warmer climate. Whatever the reason, it’s a good idea to make improvements.
