New Year’s Eve Safety Tips


New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration and parties with friends or family. While many intend on bringing in the new year with celebration, the possibility of trouble is far off.

New Year, New Goals: Hello, 2017!

The year is nearly over—again. If you’re like most of America, then you know that working 8 hours a day all year can make time fly by. Yup, from 8:00AM to 5:00PM every single day of the week for your entire life you are sitting at a desk, behind a computer screen just waiting for the life to pass you by.  What fun is that? Sounds like it’s time to set some new goals for yourself.

In fact, many people life the lot of their lives unhappy with their situations and set unrealistic goals for themselves to try and cure their unhappiness. Unfortunately, when we set goals for ourselves that are unobtainable, we set ourselves up for failure. Keep that in mind as you begin planning for next year.

As the year comes to a close, many people will take some time to reflect on their progress and the goals they set out for themselves that may or may not have been accomplished. This is also the time to set new goals and to think of new ways to succeed. While you are racking your brain on what kind of New Year’s resolution you want to declare to your friends, here are some tips on what many people seem to overlook during their extraordinary New-Year’s-resolution declarations.
