Many people are prompted into making New Year resolutions by one of the time-honored methods: a sense of failure about some aspect of their life, standing on the weighing scales, or while having a hard time trying to fasten a favorite pair of jeans (terrible for shrinking in the wash. Ahem.)

The holiday season is an indulgent time of year for many of us, but it IS possible to exercise a little restraint and have a great time!

If you did choose to indulge, then start laying the groundwork now to avoid spending the first days of 2017 groaning and swearing “never again!”
