When you feel aligned with where you live and work, you’re much more likely to be successful.
Franklin, TN (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
Livability.com, a national website featuring some of America’s best places to live, has named the top 10 cities for keeping New Year’s resolutions.
While many of us have resolved to eat healthier, strengthen relationships, drop bad habits or learn something new this year, most of those resolutions will be broken, according to many human behavior experts.
Bruce Stewart, a master practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming, coach and co-author of Your Way Home - The Psychology of Place Inside and Out, says people need all the help they can get to keep their resolutions, and being in the right place gives them better odds.
“Our surroundings are integral to our happiness,” Stewart says. “When considering a location, it’s essential to make sure the location’s resources match your needs and interests. When you feel aligned with where you live and work, you’re much more likely to be successful. If you’re not, you’ll experience some sort of stress and this will make it more difficult to succeed.”
Livability.com editors studied more than 500 cities and ranked them based on the following factors: residents’ health, population growth, financial strength, recreational activities, cultural amenities and general happiness. In some cases, editors relied on existing lists and data collections, such as the American Fitness Index. The result is a list of the 10 cities that offer the best chances of keeping those New Year's resolutions.
From the exercise fanatics in Fort Collins, CO, to the large network of volunteers in Omaha, NE, these cities give resolution makers an advantage.
