Positive Energy: Here's a Fun New Year's Resolutions Exercise You've Gotta Try!

Looking for a fun New Year's resolutions activity to do as a family and create positive energy? Grab the kids, some paper and markers and give this a try!

  • Write down bad stuff to let go of – and burn it.
  • Write down hopes, dreams, goals – and save it!

I learned about the value of "burning" the negative in various Eastern studies. I did this, for example, when I couldn't rent a property. I burned a "bad luck" key rope from the house, and guess what happened the next day? I got a tenant. Research shows that writing goals is key, and the clincher is answering how. For example: "I will workout three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday."

Good luck, and happy New Year!

I love the idea of burning the negative. I've always found that when ruminating over negative thoughts, writing it out helps me to let go. Burning just takes it one step further.
