Happy New Year from the Peas Perspective! Our New Years Resolution for the New Year was to NOT make any New Years resolutions. We realized that in the past we've made difficult to accomplish goals that usually make us feel bad about ourselves and never seem to pan out.
In 2014, we're doing things differently. We decided to make some "keep up the good work" resolutions in which we focus on great things we started doing last year and want to keep it up. It's like starting off the New Year with a pat on your back. Here's a list of our top "keep up the good work" resolutions:
Cut my caffeine intake in half by brewing 1/2 regular and 1/2 decaf in one pot.
Always choose stairs over elevators and escalators.
Drink two big camel bak's of water per day.
Listen to NPR on my commute. Stay informed and enjoy the great stories.
Cut out technology an hour before bed (that means no Office reruns while I drift off to sleep).
Take one day per month to focus on myself. Have a ME party a la the muppets movie!
Bring a healthy lunch to work at least 3 days per week.
Keep monthly and weekly to do lists on my phone so that I can stay on top of my housework, dinners and errands.
Take 10 minutes every night before bed to tidy up (instead of leaving 5 days of minor mess for the weekend).
We encourage you to take five minutes and think back on last year and what little things you started to do to improv you and your families life, write them down, pat yourself on the back and keep up the good work!
