New Year is a time for making resolutions to transform your life. Do a self-reflection analysis and see how you can enhance each of the nine areas of your life to improve your emotional, mental and spiritual status for living in harmony and balance.

1. Journey:
Set yourself a goal. Visualise your next step. Constantly look forward to something better in life. Choose to do what you can do well and do well whatever you do.

“Every job is a self portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence”.

2. Relationships:
Make a resolution to be compassionate and loving towards everyone to gain love, respect and admiration from others.

“Give the best you have and the best will come back to you”.

3. Elders:
Always respect your elders. Although they relate to your past, their blessings play a significant role in clearing the obstacles from your future. Your children normally grow up to mirror the love and affection you have given to your parents.

“As you sow, so you reap”.

4.Fortunate Blessings:
Think big. Aim high and remove limiting barriers to your capacity of getting what you want in life. Life responds to your outlook and showers fortunate blessings accordingly.

“Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.

5. Unity:
Good health is your real wealth. Examine your input in terms of what you eat, drink and breathe. Make a resolution to incorporate healthy eating, moderate drinking,
no smoking and regular exercising in your life style.

6. Helpful Friends:
Resolve to be a helpful friend.

“You shall pass through this world but once. If therefore, there be any kindness you can show, or any good thing you can do, do it now for you shall not pass this way again”.

7. Creativity:
Decide to be more creative in everything you do. Be it cooking, sewing, writing, speaking, music, photography or anything you love doing. Love your children. They are your creations.
‘Every artist was once an amateur’…(Emerson)

8. Wisdom:
Contemplation improves the understanding of your own self and provides you with stillness of mind. Introduce a practice of brief meditation in your daily routine.

“He who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakes”…(Carl Jung).

9. Illumination:
Be illuminated to become a guiding light for others and enhance your feeling of being rewarded in life. Learn to be a light and warmth for everyone around you. Knowledge does not pay. It is what you do with the knowledge that pays.
