Almost every year, I start off with a ton of new years resolutions that I think will make me happier. Some I have been able to keep and some, well let’s just say I’ve kept them for a month or so and then moved on. Right before I headed to California the first time, my mom gave me a book called “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin and it completely changed the way I look at resolutions and goals. Instead of setting new years resolutions, you set one goal each month and focus on that. It could be anything from increasing your energy levels to working on relationships etc. Don’t get me wrong, I still set out some resolutions that seem super important in January and not so much in March or June, but that’s ok and overall it’s been a better solution for me.
