New year, new you seems to always be the goal for everyone, and the number one thing most people resolve to do is to lose weight and get healthy.

Don't believe me, go into any gym in town.

While losing weight and improving your health are great things to shoot for, how about making a resolve to do something that will not only benefit you but everyone you come in contact with?

Turn on the news, or simply look around you and you will see we are a nation in turmoil.

While many of us feel like there is nothing we can do, there is... and it's easy, and free.

Smile at a stranger, open the door for people as you enter a building, give the mom with the screaming child at the grocery store words of encouragement rather than a glance or irritation.

This year, resolve to just be kind.
