The hangover is over, the parties are done and now it is the time to move into the reasonably slow return to form and work that is January. Now is the time that resolutions are adhered to with religious zeal. Its easy to get up in the mornings and don the workout gear, the running shoes and jog off into the early morning glare. With warm mornings and some people still away on break, there's so much less distraction. Make use of that and set the habits now so you don't get distracted later on when its March.
For whatever reason, any good outcome needs a good plan. A series of events in place that determines step by step how we are going to approach the task. Part of these plans are being able to create 'good habits' that help us by making something routine. A habit is something we do without even realising that it might be a conscious decision, so if we can create 'good habits' as opposed to bad ones, then we may be making those goals easier for ourselves.
