This is one of the most common resolutions, just be sure to be a bit more specific on where you want to go because vague ideas rarely get done, but attainable goals are something you can work with.

    B. QUIT SMOKING

    3. This is often considered one of the hardest habits to break, and there are plenty of products, books, and systems to help you along. Still the most effective method is going cold turkey.

    C. TRAVEL MORE

    4. If youve been putting off the annual check-up and its been awhile since youve been given a clean bill of health, you may want to resolve to going in for a doctors visit.
