It’s black Friday.
But let’s think of an alternate universe….one where we think about our goals for next year…aka resolutions.
I think we should all start our new year’s goals today.
Why? you ask skeptically.
Because there’s no pressure.
If you decide to work out, you don’t feel any pressure that a proclamation was made- “I hereby decree that I will work out every day for two hours.” (which we know will be just dust in the wind by January 2)
You just take a walk around the block, or do some sit ups.
And tomorrow you do some lunges and some arm circles.
You ease into the new year with a plan of attack. You’ve already cut out what you don’t like, and have figured out some stuff that you do.
By the time January 1 rolls around, you are already into a routine.
Don’t think about what you can buy today that will make you “better”: think about what action you can perform that will make you feel better- about your body, your mind, your situation, your life. And do one small step towards achieving it.
A better life can not be found in a box 50% off that you had to wait in line for, for three hours.
