Daily Resolution: Revisit a Childhood Game as an Adult

In recent years the comeback of the board game has surged. Monopoly, Sorry, LIFE, and even checkers are back on lists for birthdays and the holidays. On store shelves which house games of the video-variety, these board games are finding their place again and at reasonable prices. So don’t be embarrassed that you still have Parcheesi under your bed or “pop-o-matic” Trouble in the attic. Dust them off, show them off, and find a competitor to challenge!

Didn’t play many boardgames? How about Hide and Seek or Cops & Robbers?

Daily Resolution: Make Your Vote Count!

Brush up on your last minute politics and get ready to vote. Encourage family and friends to participate in democracy. Find your nearest election polling center, and be prepared to exercise your right to choose. And then when you are done, grab a thank you cookie and flash your “I Voted” sticker proudly.

If you’re outside of the US, then put something else up to a vote today!

Daily Resolution: Get a “Face”-lift

Online social networking has evolved a great deal in the last decade. It has become a quick way to follow friends, but it has also become an avenue for employers and other supervisors to keep tabs on people. Check your social network sites and be sure there is nothing incriminating or offensive on it. Try to be objective and make certain any images or comments could not be misconstrued.  Examine relationships and decide if they are ethical (example: teachers and students). It is very easy to lose some inhibitions and good judgment while online; check yourself periodically and give yourself a “face”-lift whenever necessary.

Daily Resolution: Figure Out “What’s in a Name”

Shakespeare’s Juliet said, “What’s in a name. A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet,” because she did not care that Romeo was a Montague (her family’s mortal enemy). However, naming people and products is big business. There are myriads of baby names books on the market for doting parents who want to choose a meaningful name for their child. Do you know how or why you have your name? Whether you are the next in a line of generations to carry a prestigious family name or your parents just liked the sound of your name, try to find more meaning behind it.

Daily Resolution: Make a Clean Sweep

Seldom do we think about whether our cleaners need cleaning. I am speaking of brooms, vacuums, and other sweepers. It’s easy to forget that these items need periodic cleaning or even replacing if not maintained. Check brooms frequently. If not cleaned or replaced, you could be simply spreading more dirt around your house. Hose off outdoor brooms used in garages or sheds and let them air dry. Check belts and bags/dirt collecting containers on vacuums. Plastic vacuum containers that collect the dirt can be washed with soap and warm water. A clean sweep might cut your cleaning time in half!
