I hate New Year’s resolutions. Mostly, I hate them because I’ve never been able to keep them. I read someone’s blog recently about “mini resolutions”. This woman committed 30 days to a habit she wanted to try. I can do that. I can do something for 30 days’ish.
Here are a few of the things I came up with that I want to try in the coming year.
- Make art everyday
- Eat no sugar or sugar substitutes
- Spend an hour cleaning my house
- Meditate for 15 minutes
- Watch no TV
- Go to bed earlier
- Stretch in the morning
- Bring lunch to work
- Learn French (I already have the Rosetta Stone set!)
- Write something
- Buying nothing
I figure since I’m starting in February (today in fact) that this list will do me for the rest of 2017.
What am I doing this month? Spending an hour cleaning my house every day. A friend of mine said, “That’s a lot of time! How are you going to spend that much time everyday cleaning?!” Without going into a lot of details, my house can stand AT LEAST an hour a day for a month and it will still not be clean enough, according to my mother.
