Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! May 2023 be a wonderful time for you and your family. And to all those born in January, happy birthday! Your birthstone is the versatile garnet. Garnet comes in a variety of colors, but is best known for its deep red stones. Garnet is believed to promote good health, both physical and mental. You can learn more about garnet in our blog here.

Along with the idea of wearing garnets in January to improve your health, many people make New Year’s Resolutions where they resolve to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their behavior at the beginning of a calendar year. The top five resolutions are: exercise more, lose weight, get organized, learn a new skill or hobby and live life to the fullest.

While 44% of Americans make a New Year’s resolution, only 31% continue theirs past the end of January. While that seems a poor number, you can increase your chance of succeeding by creating SMART goals, where each goal is: specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. You can learn more in this New York Times article.
