(NaturalNews) Almost everyone makes New Year's resolutions. However, by February each year, many well-intentioned attempts to make changes in one's life trickle away with nary a glance backwards. Why are so many resolutions never fulfilled? Perhaps it's because the goal is too difficult to accomplish. If individuals choose goals that are more easily attained on a daily basis, the success rate for New Year's resolutions may improve along with the quality of life. Include one or more of the following goals in your New Year's resolutions for 2012.

Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners

Monosodium Glutamate, or MSG, and artificial sweeteners may make foods taste better; but they're neurotoxins that contribute to a wide range of disease conditions. Symptoms of MSG poisoning may include headaches, dizziness, trembling, palpitations, and cognitive or neurological dysfunction. Artificial sweeteners have been associated with various cancers as well as insulin and other pancreatic disorders.

Avoid GMO foods

Foods that are genetically modified are done so at the expense of life-building nutrients and a healthful environment. Genetically modified crops destroy the ground in which they're grown, damage natural environmental life cycles and cause a variety of nutritional deficiencies and digestive disorders. The most common GMO crops are corn, soy and canola.

Eat organic

Eating organic foods provides natural nutrients to sustain life and build healthy immune systems. Organic food is real food, without additional chemicals or foreign genes added to alter its makeup. Integrate organic foods into your diet throughout the year until it becomes a primary eating style.

Buy local

Supporting local growers and artisans supports the community in which you live. Snubbing large corporations and mega-box stores creates jobs at home where people create products with more care and quality to detail. Locally grown food can be produced on smaller farms, providing positive support for sustainability.

Use natural medicine

Avoiding pharmaceutical drugs can shed more light on real health. In 2012 venture out of comfort zones and seek one or more alternative approaches to health care. Many health problems can be treated with natural medicine with outstanding results and lower cost to the consumer.

Smile more often

A smile is a ball of light moving between people, leaving a mark of happiness on both the smile-er and the smile-ee. Smiling connects people from the heart without words, and its effects linger for much longer than it takes to create a smile. Smiling relieves stress, boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure and releases endorphins that act as natural painkillers.

Make a gratitude list

Make a list of five things you're grateful for each day - to appreciate what you have rather than focusing on what you don't have. Experiencing gratitude provides grounding, shifts the mind's focus and creates a sense of satisfaction and contentment with one's life.

Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy New Year filled with easily accomplished goals and resolutions.
