The new year is upon us once again. And once again millions will be making their "New Year's Resolutions", a majority of which will focus on some sort of healthier living goal.

Will we trade it for something of high value with a high return on investment or will we trade it for something of low value that may actually be more of a liability than an asset?
Those around us who seem to enjoy life more fully, find the success we endeavor to achieve, and...
