Today’s Resolution: Don’t Bad Mouth Anyone Today

Whether you hate Lady Gaga or that chatty barista at your local Starbucks who’s “slow as hell”—keep it to yourself today. Negativity attracts negativity and gossip only leads to more gossip. Have you ever noticed that when you get together with a group of people and one person starts bad-mouthing someone, suddenly it’s like a room full of bumble bees looking for honey?

Today, and just for today… shut up.

When you find yourself about to pop out something remarkably obnoxious and hateful, find a way to say something creatively positive instead. You might just find that a happy mouth is a happy mind.

Update: Resolution Complete – or so it would seem.

Today’s Resolution: Answer The Phone Every Time it Rings

Today could be tough for some, and easy for others. If you’re in good standing with all of your credit cards and you don’t have any annoying inlaws to ignore, today will be a good day for you. If there are people better ignored via the telephone, today may take a dose of bravery (or Xanax). Brace yourself, you might just resolve something unexpected today.

Today’s Resolution: Start Running On Time

Gather your clocks and set them to the right time. Whether you missed daylight savings time, or you really think setting your car dashboard 15 minutes ahead is going to get you there on time, let’s get everything straight.

Your brain was made to remember more important things than which clocks are set correctly. I mean, haven’t you ever seen the movie Chaos Theory where the wife is all “I’ll play a joke on you and set your clock ahead to disrupt your control-freak nature” and he’s all “OMG bad joke woman—you literally just ended up destroying my life”. Seriously, you don’t want to get tangled up in clock trickery.

When you’re done, use the comments to check in!

Daily Resolution: Resolve to Resolve…But Do It Later

There is always a great deal of pressure in early January to make very specific resolutions. This only makes the chance at success even more challenging. Local gyms experience a surge in memberships, nicotine patches sell like hotcakes, and Lean Cuisines become a menu staple. Imagine that at the same time of year, the entire world’s population is focused on making lifestyle changes that are very apt to make one prone to crankiness and impatience.
