25 Resolutions For A Simplified Year
So, you want to make some resolutions, do you? Great news: I’ve got twenty-five (that you might not have come up with on your own) for you to choose from.
1. Stop “shopping the sales.” Not because spending more is preferable, but because sales disrupt your ability to think clearly about whether you really want and need an item. They’re designed that way to get you to buy.
2. (Politely) stop taking or accepting free promotional items.
3. Adopt the response “Let me check my availability and get back to you,” instead of immediately spurting “OKAY!”
4. Donate to a different charitable organization, via belongings you no longer want and need, all year long.
5. Donate to the exact same charitable organization, via belongings you no longer want and need, all year long.
6. Keep a recycling bin by the front door, or wherever you open the mail. Immediately deposit any papers you don’t want or need.
7. Implement an on-going donation bin in your home.
8. Get a plant. Keep it alive. (Having green, living things around is good.)
9. Make home a place you really want to be.
10. Spend more time at home.
11. Stop feeling weird about spending time at home.
12. Get a shredder. Seriously. It’s the thing every home and office needs.
13. Give yourself permission to edit all areas of your life, from clothes, to foods, to friends.
14. Practice self care. Invest in your wellbeing and health. Don’t think twice about doing so.
15. Stop holding on to crumby gifts you receive with the intent to regift them to someone else later. Why?
16. Learn to discern the priorities from the bullshit.
17. Decide you have no time or space for the bullshit. Not now, not ever again.
18. Start asking Siri to remind you about important dates and appointments. That’s what “she’s” there for.
19. Identify trusted experts whose guidance you can rely on, and then steadfastly obey what they advise. It’s more crucial now than ever.
20. Delegate what you aren’t good at to the people who specialize in exactly what you loathe.
21. Get your kids different colored socks and underwear for easy identification during the laundry process.
22. Put things away.
23. Make time for it or release it as a priority.
24. Make scheduling an art form; get an agenda that delights you.
25. Set a timer; amaze at how quickly you get things done.
