Today’s Resolution: Take a Silly Photo of Yourself

You can’t be serious all the time, you know? You gotta hunker down, grow a little humility and tell yourself, “it’s OK to relax and be silly once in a while”. This might seem like a silly resolution in itself, but judging by overload of boob and ab shots on Facebook, it’s definitely about time we all got a little sillier and stopped worrying about our double chins, crooked teeth, or whatever our personal insecurity is. Be silly, take a photo, and post it for the world to see.

Today’s Resolution: Wrap Up Early and Unwind

I’m not going to go out there and say “go home and get wasted tonight” because I’m a proper lady and I’m sensitive to the issues of alcoholics. However, there are lots of ways to unwind and today you have permission to say, “it’s 5 o’clock (or whatever o’clock you work on), and I’m off the clock”. Do absolutely nothing but exactly what you want for the duration of your evening. You deserve it.

Today’s Resolution: Make a New Friend

The world of social networks somehow brings us all together yet so painfully far apart at the same time. “Like, I totally responded to all of your posts for the past year, so why do we need to get coffee and catch up? Guh! You’re so needy!”

So while you’re passive-aggressively putting those meetups off, let’s try to start fresh. Today your goal is to make a new friend. Maybe they won’t be a lifelong friend, and maybe they’ll just be a new friend you made in line at the grocery store. Regardless, let’s make a friend. Ask them what they do, who they are, how they get their teeth so white… you know, all the usual new-friend stuff.

 

Today’s Resolution: Eat Something New

When I was a kid, I had three basic food groups: vanilla ice cream, cheese pizza, and orange juice. My mom would try to throw in a little meatloaf and chicken pot pie for dinner, but when you’ve got lunch money and public school, you can buy all the snacks you want.

Thankfully, sometime around the time I met Patrick and he convinced me that red wine would change my life (it did), we started going crazy with the palate-testing. Squid ink pasta at Chez Henri in Cambridge, MA was probably my most memorable-looking dish, but I had pig nose at some place in Chicago too and that’s an image that will stay with me, probably forever.

So today, try something new. I’m in St. Thomas this week, so there’s bound to be something crazy to try out.

Today’s Resolution: Drink 3 Cups of Green Tea

Not only do we not drink enough water every day, but we definitely don’t drink enough tea… right? And don’t worry, green tea is wicked manly too, so it’s cool.. just ask Kevin Rose.. he’s totally manly and that dude loves his tea.

More importantly, green tea is said to help you lose weight and is pretty much proven to reduce anxiety tremendously within 48 hours just by drinking three cups a day. Let me know how you feel at the end of the day. And drink decaf if you need to, I will be.
