So you’ve stuffed yourself full of black-eyed peas, cabbage, and fish. You’re bound and determined to solve all the world’s problems this year… or at least lose five pounds. You promise your family and friends to be around more. You have a detailed plan to get out of debt in the next twelve months. You’re making grand plans to volunteer more, get organized, maybe learn a new language.

But what happens when someone brings fresh doughnuts to the office? When you find an incredible deal for that flat screen you’ve had your eye on? When you get hooked on a new reality TV show?

At Studio252 this month, we are going to talk about the very thing that can make your New Year’s resolutions more than just a great idea—self-control. We define self-control as simply choosing to do what you should do not what you want to do. So what’s fun about that?? Well, get your family together for some of these activities and find out just how fun learning about self-control can be!

  • Watch as the studio252 team learns a very important lesson about just how important self-control can be!
  • Practice self-control by playing a classic game of Simon Says.
  • Bake a batch of cookies together—without eating all the dough!
  • Let your kids show off their self-control skills by pushing the cart next time you’re at the store!

Practicing self-control can be a lot more fun than it sounds, but the best part of self-control comes when it’s all said and done–when you avoid the break room or TV room all day and you get to see the fruits of those New Year’s resolutions.
