New Year's resolutions—oh, why not?

I’m a little bummed that I felt I had to break my own rule today and work on a Saturday. (My reasoning was that it would be far more stressful NOT to get some things done today, because I’m waaaay behind and am having computer problems that are making the situation especially dire.) But I would like to officially set a goal of not making this exception again in 2018. If I can get through January, the rest of the year should be easy.

I sort of thought I had moved beyond making a bunch of resolutions just because a calendar page is turning over, but I seem to have come up with several plans for January despite myself:

  • I want to take a break from self-directed yoga and do this 30-day program. These are always really good, and I feel like it will give me some new ideas and breathe fresh life into my own practice the rest of the year.
  • I really want to try the eating guidance from this book I just read—it’s an even stricter set of food restrictions, basically. But the author makes big claims, and it sounds like it would be interesting to try. (The only problem is that I’m not really prepared, grocery-wise, and the weather tomorrow is supposed to be full-on Arctic wasteland. With wind.)
  • Finally, I think it’s already time for another social media break. Not only for my health and productivity, but also because of all the privacy issues on Facebook and all the Nazi issues on Twitter. I just feel like giving those services less of my brain and content. You may have to just come back here if you want to hear my opinions on things. (Privacy good, Nazis bad!)
