Oh hello New Year. Happy days. I do love seeing the clock turn over to a New Year, but if I see one more ‘New Year, New You’ sign I may have to punch something.
I love new beginnings, turning over a new leaf, giving up bad habits, and making new ones. I also love a cliché every now and then. See what I did there?
Instead of New Year’s Resolutions I won’t keep, here are a few things I’d like to do more or less of in 2014. I’m not giving in to absolutes – they don’t exist.
Drink more water.
Drink less booze.
Practice yoga more.
Self criticize less.
These are broad and there are a lot of them. But you’ve got to admit, they’re easier to stick to than “cut out all refined sugar” and “don’t ever text the ex at 3am”, am I right?
Here’s to a New Year and doing things a little differently. Don’t be too hard on yourself to create a new you, as I bet you there is someone out there who likes you just the way you are (Note to self: add Watch Bridget Jones less to the list).
Happy 2014 friends.
