Contest: A Different Spin On New Year’s Resolutions

By now many of us have already made New Year’s resolutions. Most of the resolutions have to do with improving our health or doing things to improve ourselves such as losing weight, eating better, going to the gym, etc. Most of these New Year’s resolutions are for our own personal gain.

Why not try something different this year? Why not go back and make a New Year’s resolution where we are helping or uplifting others.  There are so many people out there that would be grateful if someone gave them a hand or if someone could be there by their side to listen or even be supportive of them.  It could be as simple as going to an old age home and talking to an elderly person once a week. Perhaps join a big brother or big sister program.  Maybe help an elderly person shovel their driveway or walkway when it snows or take out their garbage once a week. It could be helping out at a local farm sanctuary or volunteering to walk dogs at a nearby shelter.

Let’s think about and make different New Year’s resolutions this year that helps you to grow or ‘improve’ if you will in other ways, by giving your love and attention outward.  Let’s get the ball rolling.

Let us know what your resolution is to help others and how your New Year’s resolution is going so far.  You have the rest of January to start something up. It can be simple and not even take up much time. Take some time and see what transpires and then tell us about it. Or if you even have other ideas then let us know! Simply type it in the comments below and you’ll be automatically entered to win a Spirooli Vegetable Slicer. It will be a random drawing so entries are not competing against each other.

Hi Upaya Team,

From a young age I recognized the importance of nourishing my physical, mental and spiritual health. Because of this ingrained personal awareness, some of the things I have continued to integrate into my lifestyle are conscious eating, daily exercise, connecting with nature, and practicing yoga and meditation. I have been a vegetarian since I was 12 years old, and now at 20, I enjoy eating a diet full of beautiful living foods and spices! From my experience, raw vegan living foods as well as Superfoods have supplied me with optimum energy and an everyday zeal for life! The RawFoodz CheeSauce’s and Salad Dressings are comforting, healing and rejuvenating, and along with other brands of raw foods, they continue to inspire my decisions and living intentions to teach others about the amazing potential of these foods. There is something for everyone! Furthermore, in the New Year I will be working in a raw living food community, and, in addition to ordering from Upaya, I will be farming my own organic foods. I strongly believe that it is essential and wise to invest energy in the cooperation with nature and its vast bounty of natural resources for the health of all living things. Go raw vegan living foods!

Happy Holidays,
