December is the time to set new goals for the new year 2018. Make a list of reachable Goals and New Year Resolutions carefully and enthusiastically. Think of welcoming New Year 2018 with an open heart and mind. Be realistic and positive.

In order to get what you want, you need to adjust your lifestyle according to the realities of life. If you want to get something great then you have to make a little more effort and quit those habits that are coming in your own way. You should not blame others for your failures. Your own bad habits are the real culprits.

I believe that anyone, living in any part of the world, has the right to be happy and enjoy every moment of his/her life. Our one point agenda this year should be “Live Happily”. Let us all pledge and work to bring happiness in our lives.

The areas which need your special attention are:

We all have to fulfill so many roles that at times it can be overwhelming. Therefore, it is not unlikely for some to live stressful lives. This is not good because stress affect us entirely. It clouds and slows down our thinking process and puts a lot of weight on our bodies. The results are unclear communication with others, malfunction in work/school, irritability, tiredness, etc. As you can see none of the symptoms cause by stress are positive. Therefore, it is best to avoid it. You are probably thinking avoid stress? Yeah Right!

According to the organizers of Take Back Your Time Day, which was held on October 15, if Americans quit working on that date and didn't work for the rest of the year, we would be working the same number of hours as the average European.

While war and poor economic conditions begin to affect people all over the world, more and more people suffer with depression. The more we focus on news events and the business climate, the more we are depressed. Whatever the reason you feel is the cause of your depression, the following five simple tips guarantee you reduce it significantly.

1. Do not read newspapers.

Think of the things that make you happy,
Not the things that make you sad;
Think of the fine and true in mankind,
Not its sordid side and bad;

Think of the blessings that surround you,
Not the ones that are denied;
Think of the virtues of your friendships,
Not the weak and faulty side;

Think of the gains you’ve made in business,
Not the losses you’ve incurred;
Think of the good of you that’s spoken,
Not some cruel, hostile word;

Think of the days of health and pleasure,
Not the days of woe and pain;
Think of the days alive with sunshine,
Not the dismal days of rain;
