Happy New Year!
Have you made your resolutions?
I have not.
Last year, my resolution was to make my bed each morning. For 31 days in a row, I crawled into a well made bed. And the balance of the year found me untangling the covers and giving up on top sheets.
I resolved to make changes last October when I joined the Health Month game! Developed by Buster Benson, Health Month is an online adaptation of a game he and a few friends played, from New York to Seattle, as a way to improve their healthy habits.
If you thrive on receiving praise, or thrive on being lovingly scolded, then I recommend checking out Health Month as your New Year's resolution.
Each month you sign up for a new set of rules to live by for the next 28 to 31 days. This month is my toughest yet, with six rules that I'm required to abide by lest I lose life points and risk a bit of embarrassment.
If you run into me in the month of January, you can be assured that I will have followed my rules:
1. No added sugar
2. No watching television content via Netflix
3. Exercise for at least 45 minutes, three times a week
4. Do yoga for at least 45 minutes, three times a week
5. Meditate for at least 15 minutes each day
6. Practice piano or origami every day
I will report back with updates at the end of the month! Consider it for yourself, or choose one of the resolutions below:
1. Resolve to watch backyard bird behavior and divine how said behavior relates to the activities of the government
2. Embroider your initials on each piece of underwear (this is better for men, or women who wear mens' underwear)
3. Chew each bite of food at least twenty times. This works best for people who like to eat steak.
4. Laugh! If you don't know how, then do a jig in the mirror while wearing a goofy hat. If you don't laugh, at least you've had a bit of exercise.
Happy New Year!
