“Change. It’s the most popular topic on the Internet this week. Some folks love resolutions; some rally against them. Some may call them intentions, rituals, goals or promises.” ~Kris Carr, author of Crazy Sexy Cancer.
This week I compiled a list of e-book Healthy Discoveries to help you create healthy habits and achieve great things via your 2012 resolutions. Regardless of which part of your life you resolve to change, these resources can help you get clear about what you want and why. They’ll teach you how to follow-through and maintain your focus throughout the whole year.
1. Unraveling The Year Ahead – Susannah Conway hosts a popular photography e-course which takes people through The Unraveling Process- using a camera as a tool to unlock how we see not only ourselves but also the world we live in. We do this in the simplest way: we stop and look. Beginning with your feet, you’re going to go on a photo safari into your own life to reconnect with who you are, where you’ve been and where you want to go next.
Susannah also created this FREE download for you to write about and reflect on the past year while focusing on a fulfilling New Year.

3. The Right Brain Business Plan - Are you an artist, health and wellness professional, educator, coach, designer, writer, photographer, non-profit leader or all-around creative soul wanting to make a positive impact with your entrepreneurial endeavors? Do you dream of making a living doing what you love but find the process of creating a viable business plan like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Jennifer Lee knows what it’s like to make the entrepreneurial leap — and how to do it successfully. The key is using, rather than stifling, imagination and intuition. Lee’s illustrated, colorful worksheets and step-by-step instructions are playful yet practical, transforming drudgery into joy. They’ll enable you to define your vision and nail down plans for funding, marketing, networking, and long-term strategy.
4. Sustainable Creativity - Learn to use whatever energy you have available, however limited it may be, to maintain a creative life (or livelihood). Maybe you’re someone, like the author, who has a chronic illness which means the energy available for creative endeavors is severely curtailed.
Or maybe your days are so full of the busyness of life that you have very little time or energy left over to pursue your creative ambitions. Either way, Sustainable Creativity could be for you.

6. Secrets of Lasting Weight Loss Revealed – I’m a fan of Kat Eden’s blog because she trained with Charles Poliquin.

Happy New Year!
