Daily Resolution: Plan a Sports-Themed Party

Bowl Games Mania (football) strikes many households in December and January,  and it is a good idea to not only have plenty of snacks on hand, but bowls to put them in. Take a few with you if someone else is hosting the party. Many economical retail stores have decorative and colorful plastic bowls sold in multi-packs for just a few dollars. They are easy to clean and can be used again for the next bowl game!

Daily Resolution: Promote Your Favorite Business

Is there is a business you love? Do you do there often without even thinking about it? Today your goal is to shout them out. Use your social networks and personal communications to give them a big verbal high-five and word of mouth buzz that only you and their most loyal customers can provide. For bonus points, bring a friend there today and share the experience!

Daily Resolution: Think About Winter

The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year, but has been traditionally commemorated in a variety of ways by different cultures throughout the world for centuries. The burning of the Yule log, the masked parading of mummers, and even sacrifice in ancient days have been part of the seasonal rituals. Find your own way to celebrate the official change in season from autumn to winter by starting your own tradition. Bake a batch of cookies, have a hot chocolate party, or grab a blanket and cozy up with someone in front of a fire as you toast to “Old Man Winter.”

Daily Resolution: Press Play

Customize a  “play list” for you or your family. Before you start an internet hunt for classic tunes, check with others who may have a trove of medleys you could borrow to create your own compilation. Fill the room and set the mood. There are also many free radio venues that can be accessed through the internet which categorize holiday music if your particular tastes run in a specific genre like classics, children’s songs, jazzy, gospel, etc.

Daily Resolution: Watch Some Classic Movies

Make some time to watch a classic movie with friends or family. For example, during the holidays, some list toppers include: “A Christmas Story,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “The Bells of St. Mary’s,” “Prancer,” and “Elf”. Get a television schedule to see what is playing and plan for a popcorn night. Many of these annual favorites can also be found in local stores, online, or can be rented. Already have your own copy? Dust it off and take a stroll with Jimmy Stewart through Bedford Falls, sing a song with Bing Crosby, or appreciate the innocence of Buddy the Elf…just don’t shoot your eye out, kid!
