“I need light in the dark as I search for the resolution.”

Title is from this song by Jack’s Mannequin.

Here’s how Wikipedia describes New Year’s Resolutions:

Inspired by this, my New Year’s resolution list is:

  1. Open doors for people

Just kidding. But in an effort to hold myself accountable, I wanted to share a few resolutions/things I’d like to work on or continue in 2016.

  1. Drink more water. I generally squeeze in 8 glasses on weekdays but could use this reminder on weekends.
  2. Be thoughtful and gracious when accepting criticism or compliments. There’s no need to take criticism too personally, or to immediately deflect a compliment.
  3. Take the time to learn and hone a new skill.
  4. Be more mindful when grocery shopping to reduce food waste.
  5. Make time for hanging out with friends, but accept that it’s ok to respectfully decline  sometimes in favor of much-needed alone time.
  6. Sign up for TSA Pre-check.
  7. Go on at least two runs per week, even if they’re short.
  8. Talk less, listen more.
  9. Read more fiction. I’ve been on a non-fiction kick for a while and am craving a change.
  10. Actually finish an entire season of a TV show. This probably sounds trivial, but I am notoriously bad at making it through shows. Like, I only have one more episode of Master of None to watch and I finished episode 9 two months ago. I should probably just watch that single, 30-minute episode so I can say I’ve completed the season.
  11. No screen time 30 minutes before bed. (Which means I need to finish watching Master of None no later than 30 minutes before bed.)

Happy 2016!
