It's that time of year where we swear to ourselves that we'll finally hit the gym, reduce our carb intake and spend more time with the family. Unfortunately, our deeply engrained habits often supersede our good intentions, and we fall back into the same old habits eventually. In fact, according to studies, a whopping eight percent of people end up achieving their New Year's resolutions.
This year, instead of making lofty resolutions, perhaps instead we should take a pause to look within -- to evaluate what is and isn't working in creating a fulfilled life. In this moment of reflection, we can increase our personal consciousness by asking some of these key questions.
