Time for a moment of truth: I abhor making New Year’s resolutions.
Without fail, ever new year starts with me making a promise to myself to exercise more, but really, who am I kidding? I also promise to stop eating crap, drink less wine, stop dropping the occasional F-bomb, and cease and desist from watching the news when it only angers and depresses me.
But this year, inspired by my son, Erik, I will not be making resolutions (it's senseless to make these idle promises that I never keep for more than a week). He said there are other resolutions that can empower rather than make me feel pressured and guilty, and he shared the following tips that are sure to make my next 12 months — no, the rest of my life — wonderful. I hope they do the same for you.
