It is now December 29, 2012. The world didn’t end as the rabidly fanatics said. The Mayan’s didn’t predict the end of the world. They either simply ran out of material to write on, got lazy to update their calendar, or some other reason that doesn’t have anything to do with the end of the world.┬áNow another year is about to end. This is the season when people mentally writes a list of things they won’t do, or at least avoid to do, in the up and coming new year. Have you made your New Year’s resolution yet? Specifically, you’re the only one who can pinpoint the exact things you need to change (or alter a bit) about yourself but if you need help, here’s what we have to say.

Lay off on the booze. Okay – okay, you don’t have to lay off ’em completely. It’s nice to have a drink or two especially when catching up with friends or just hanging out with co-workers after a long week of hard to beat deadlines in the office. But it’s easy to say “I won’t drink too much tonight” at the beginning of the party than when you’re in the middle of a nice conversation or the dance floor. Sagittarius are big on parties and parties are usually equipped with alcohol. Give yourself a limit of how much you’ll drink at a party. Also, make sure you go on detox once a month. This is important for the younger party goers who drink almost every night. Health studies show that detoxing for a few days once a month is better than doing it in longer periods like laying off the alcohol two months in a row every year.

Pick up on your exercise routine. You may be active and always on the go but all the food and alcohol in the parties you go to will catch up on you eventually. Make sure you hit the gym or do a healthy physical activity at least once a week. Run, take up dance classes, yoga or anything that might interest you. If you’re too busy you can try walk and walk and walk. Also, use the stairs rather than the elevator if you’re only going two or three flights of stairs. Walk, instead of driving if the place you’re going to is only three or four blocks from where you are. It’s good cardio and will help burn calories.

Bring extra tact with you. We’re not saying Sags are tactless but they are known to be blunt and sarcastic and they have the tendency to tell the truth outright. While this is a trait that might help in a lot of circumstances, you might want to consider a person’s feelings and attitude first before you blurt things out. Especially if you don’t know the person that much. You like meeting new people and having friends, right? Well, you can’t keep them if you’re not careful.

There’s always room for a little improvement for the next year but it doesn’t have to be anything drastic. We’re not saying you should change yourself because that’s who you are. Just make sure that whatever you do, you have to try to have fun with it and make sure no one gets hurt in the process. Happy New Year! :)
