    There is no time like the start of a new year to make your first to-do list. The one that is always at the forefront in January is, of course, the often made and infrequently carried out New Year’s resolutions.

    How many people in the history of time have uttered the words, “I am not a morning person.” No, you are not. And you are not alone, because very few people will describe themselves as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as the sun launches skyward from the horizon and a new day begins.

    Santa Claus is not the only busy person checking their list and checking it twice during the month of December. The holiday season is glorious and magical, but it can also be hectic and stressful. Many of us are hard-wired to try to do everything- from decorating to baking to gift-buying.
