Happy New Decade!

Several years ago, one of the New York City daily papers published the responses of passers-by in response to the question, “What is your New Year’s Resolution?”  Many of the answers were fairly predictable –  better health, more exercise, improved diet – but one stood out.

“Next year, I’m going to daydream more,” answered one woman. It was a notable response because it was less intended toward making oneself “better,” and more intended to make oneself “happier.” What a novel concept!

The good news is that the link between happiness and good health is no secret and ongoing studies continue to support the connection.

Here are some great articles on the matter.

And, as we embark on a new year and a new decade and as you ponder and practice your 2020 Resolutions, we hope you’ll consider your happiness as an important force and guideline for your time and your energy.

Happy 2020!
