  • The Wellington Advertiser - FHT: Locals should make resolutions they can keep
    motivation or your desire to do things Dr Vallis from the Behaviour Change Institute suggests asking yourself the following questions 1 Do you see your current behaviour as a problem For example Do you see eating a bag of chips at night before bed or watching TV instead of going for a walk as a problem 2 Does your current behaviour concern you 3 Are you interested in changing 4 Are you ready to change now If you have answered no to any of these this change in behaviour will not happen as easily as if you had answered yes to all But this doesn t mean you can t make the change Next according to Dr Vallis you should look at why you want this change and how hard you will work to achieve it One thing that often interferes with best laid plans is your readiness for change When figuring out if you are ready to make a change in your habits it is a good idea to create a pro and con list for the new behaviour and for staying the same This will help sway you toward one or the other It is also a good idea to try to predict if anything will get in your way This new behaviour is probably something that your have tried to change before so understanding what interfered in the past will be helpful as you move forward For each barrier you can think of try to also think of ways to get around these situations This will help you be ready and hopefully be able to overcome the barrier when it presents itself Most of the time New Year s resolutions are kept for the first little while You start to enjoy the benefits and outcomes of this new behaviour but then slip back into your old habits During this time it is important to focus on these new benefits such as more energy from exercising or less cravings and the weight loss from not eating chips at night The reason you are experiencing these benefits is from your new behaviour And to keep feeling this way you need to keep doing the new behaviour Your confidence is something that will help maintain your new behaviour To build confidence be sure to follow a path to every goal Along this path will be twists and turns and many small goals leading you to your ultimate destination As you achieve the small goals along the way the success will create a more confident you This growing confidence will allow you to keep making realistic short term goals that will continue to get you closer and closer to your bigger goal For more information about any of the free services offered by the Minto Mapleton Family Health Team visit mmfht ca or call the Drayton office at 519 638 2110 or the Clifford office at 519 327 4777 January 6 2012 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Year One: Long term look at services one goal of new mayor Bruce Whale
    because maintenance costs could be made up within five to 10 years Now we have to check those numbers to see if they still work he said Whale said rural roads were built over 100 years ago for horse and buggy but council will have to consider what is realistic Maybe we can t afford to keep every side road He noted in making such decisions considering which roads have bridges and worn out culverts might be a factor Whale looking well down the road and remembering many of those roads and bridges were built when he was in his teens said council will have to come up with a cost for 20 to 50 years of upgrades Head of council Whale worked with the same five councillors for seven years but after the dust cleared from the last election he was in the mayor s chair and two of the remaining seats had changed hands With two new and two veteran councillors he had an interesting first year I think it s great he said There s really an advantage of having turnovers on council Different ideas are great as long as people are willing to listen to the facts I don t mind the difference of opinion There have been several of those in the past few months leaving Whale to cast the deciding vote He admits I prefer having a majority coming from the council itself rather than breaking a tie which I don t like But he said there is no group causing dissension and he noted in some cases one new and one veteran councillor have voted together opposing the other new and veteran councillors He added if every vote is unanimous there is always a question if you ve looked at every aspect of an issue A split forces you to look at every angle One thing he would like to see staff improve is orientation for new councillors and mayors Since his previous term had all acclamations there was little in place to help everyone get started and Whale said I struggle a little bit how long it takes to be comfortable with issues What is really involved in making policy It s quite different than other organizations Political structure is more complex and doesn t move as quickly He concluded when it comes to getting new people up to speed We can make that smoother I d like to get it out of the way in the first six months He added he encourages staff and council to take every opportunity they can to educate themselves I m a great one for training Whale said he is always interested in how other councils operate and if his council can incorporate some of their ideas to the benefit of the municipality County council While Whale was a seven year veteran of municipal council he was brand new to county council which comes with being mayor I was expecting in the first year to

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Council to try again with COPs committee
    the miscreant a letter and after a couple of those they can pay the driver a visit to talk about aggressive or dangerous driving He said without a licence plate number a complaint is difficult to follow up He added though even posting Road Watch signs has a beneficial effect It does slow people down he said Caledon now takes submissions online that are proving useful One person there is designated to get those emails and pick up the complaints so police can send letters If we see repetition we ll go down to that person s place Hunjan said If you have a licence plate we re in business Councillor Kelly Linton wondered what is the use of a report without a licence plate number Hunjan admitted even one digit wrong makes the complaint impossible to act on Linton also wondered about delays Reports could be days old and the aggressive driver could have already had an accident Hunjan agreed there is a time lag between the offence and police acting on a report Linton also noted some things should be reported directly and immediately to police such as someone passing a stopped school bus Hunjan agreed and said it is difficult to determine if someone is speeding He said he would have difficulty judging the speed of a vehicle but dangerous and aggressive driving is another matter and that should be reported Councillor Kirk McElwain said speeding is a complaint reported most often Hunjan said if it is someone consistently doing it the OPP could send a letter Councillor Fred Morris noted there was someone at council from Milburn Crescent who is willing to volunteer for a Road Watch committee There have been numerous complaints from residents on that Fergus street Morris wanted to know the cost of the Road Watch kits Haley said the group makes its own and that keeps costs down Morris asked if the OPP is willing to commit to the program Hunjan said it is and there is a sergeant already available for Centre Wellington Councillor Walt Visser told the delegation It s my job to be negative He said there are already facilities to report driving problems to the OPP and this would become just one more committee of council Further he said there is a cost and he does not like the idea of looking at the OPP budgets of the future and seeing 20 000 or more for an officer to work on the program particularly if civilian help is also an expense for the program on that budget I have a problem with you budgeting with two complaints a month Visser said Councillor Mary Lloyd said she sits on the COPs committee and has not heard anything about Road Watch She had missed one meeting That committee in the summer rejected getting involved with Road Watch because it had already set its priorities and focus for the year before Road Watch made its presentation It felt it had all
