I’ve thought before about doing the Gretchen Rubin thing and adopting a one-word theme for the year, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually done it. (At least not successfully or memorably.) But I came up with a good one for 2016, and I think I’ll try to incorporate it into each month’s resolutions—ready?
I like this theme because it has multiple meanings I can play with, but the most basic, fundamental, and obvious one is to simply get in more daily walking. Since it’s winter, and Montana, I’ve been “practicing” for a few days to see how horrible it is to go to the gym to walk on the treadmill. It’s a little horrible, actually, but I think I can probably cope until spring, especially since I have so many great podcasts lined up on my phone—namely, all the ones I let pile up while I plowed through 700 episodes of Selected Shorts this month.
