  • TOP 6 New Year resolutions for Engineers!

    The world denied apocalypse, but 2012 is about to end and gone with it are the phony Prophecies of the MAYANS!!

    Let's see what 2013 has up it's sleeves. Beginning of the New Year is accompanied by new resolutions for a better life ahead. And it's an old custom that was started way back by antecedents centuries ago.

    The ancient Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. On the other hand Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named. In the Medieval era, the knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry.

    Our generation believes in partying hard on New year eve! But, it is said that what's done on the first day of the upcoming year, goes on till the end of that very year.
    We might love to believe it but if Mayans can go wrong, anybody else can! This is the year when weíll definitely, absolutely and without any shadow of a doubt finally prepare a To-do list, and will follow it the whole year . If you note a degree of over-emphasis behind this new yearís resolution, it is because we're afraid it is not the first time we have made it.

    But letís not rest our case on the exact number of years when we have made this particular promises to ourself. The most embarrassing fact is that we've been trying to adopt our resolution rather for a long time, and still havenít quite cracked it.

    So, once again let's focus our minds on what's up in the resolution list for 2013.

    Quit Smoking

    It's a great move on your part if you wish to resolve that you'll stamp out your smoking habit this year. Even if you've tried to quit before and failed, don't let it get you down. On average, smokers try about four times before they quit for good. Start enjoying the rest of your smoke-free life! Locally, there are a variety of free support services, hotlines and smoking cessation classes to help you kick the smoking habit.

    Quit Drinking

    It's difficult to party at New year's eve unless it's boozed in with martini's, cocktails, mocktails etc! While many people use the New Year as an incentive to finally stop drinking, most are not equipped to make such a drastic lifestyle change all at once. Many heavy drinkers fail to quit but they taper gradually, or even learn to moderate their drinking. If you have decided that you want to stop drinking, there is a world of help and support available.

    Mitigate the bulge

    Our foodie youth goes for junk every time! Overweight or obese is the greatest threats for the present generation, so it is not surprising to find that weight loss is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions. Setting reasonable goals and staying focused are the two most important factors in sticking with a weight loss program.

    Stop Lying!

    Interesting. This would have been on the New year's reslolutions list countless time. Start off with a lie and you'll end up lying about a thousand times in order to justify it. So to cut the stretch JUST STOP LYING!

    Stop Abusing!

    Guys do this all the time. But to get over it is the hardest part. No matter how old or young we are, but to respect the individuality of others is the greatest gesture. bad-mouthing others is considered to be low on etiquette's and mannerism.

    Don't Fall, easily!

    We are most of the times worse when it comes to making choices. Girl can make us fall for them with a fake smile. Girls/Guys end up heart broken, drowning careers etc if break-up happens to encounter. This year promise yourself to act a bit smart and take some time, think consciously before indulging in any kind of a relationship.
