Today’s Resolution: Give Yourself Alone Time

Even though having a kick-butt significant other, child, best friend or roommate is super-duper great—sometimes alone time is good for the soul. There are things you don’t (usually) do with other people that are great stress-busting, independence building activities that we often forget about in our daily lives. A bath, for example, might be a distant memory. Or perhaps, driving alone and singing at the top of your lungs on a backroad where nobody can see or hear you. Maybe you’ve been wanting to cut your nails or dye your hair or wash your car. Alone time is a fundamental element of individuality, so today your resolution is to take that time.

Today’s Resolution: Write a (Disposable) Love Letter

Saint Valentine’s Day is technically a Christian holiday meant to honor Saint Valentine, but was deleted from the Catholic books back in 1969 (appropriate?) by the Pope and has since been celebrated by anyone and everyone ever since.

Generally, the “holiday” is meant to show that special someone that you love them. Or rather, since you may do that every day, it’s an excuse to show them a little extra appreciation. Or even more accurately, it’s an excuse to eat heart-shaped red-velvet cupcakes and eat a fancy dinner. And who can hate that?

Today’s Resolution: Forget The Noise and Meditate

Oh Monday, the most loathed day of the week for anyone who works the Monday through Friday shift. The benefits are the weekends, but the sacrifice is waking up to a dreaded Monday morning for the rest of your life (…perhaps). So, today you’re probably going to want to hang tight and brace yourself, right? That’s why it’s good to meditate every once in a while (or every day). If you’re a pro, then I don’t need to tell you how to get started. If you’re not and this is your first time, here are some pointers:

Today’s Resolution: Hug Somebody

On Sundays we try to give you resolutions that are fulfilling but also comforting, like Sundays are meant to be spent – fulfilled and comforted. That’s why today’s resolution is to hug somebody. And there are no real rules to “the emotional heimlich”, it’s up to you. If you need a few reminders as to why hugging is way more rad than personal space, here are a few facts I dug up that may or may not have any scientific evidence behind them:

Today’s Resolution: Go Left When You Should Go Right

Today’s objective is to get lost, and not in the “get outta here” kind of way. Instead of finding your way today, take a wrong turn instead. Instead of going wherever the GPS tells you to go, or wherever your hiking trail guides you, use your intuition. Keep your GPS for backup of course, but take some time out today and see how your sense of direction is first. Perhaps you’ll discover a new place, a new route, or maybe you’ll just get lost. Don’t forget to enjoy the ride/walk/slide along the way, because sometimes it’s OK not to ask for directions.
