I’ve been through a phase in my life of hating New Year’s resolutions. So much of the narrative around them is about either self-denial (weightloss always a popular topic) or inevitably failing (this year will be the year I finally …).
There’s a lot of pressure on people to make them, and make drastic changes in their life in the process. That’s always difficult.
But a new year is also a good time to reflect on where we’ve been, how we got here, and what we want to focus on for the year ahead. So my New Year’s resolutions are:
- Eat more delicious food
- Keep my friends close
- Do some good in the world
And now I’ve written them down in public I’m going to have to keep them – so I suppose the scheme works! What do you want to achieve in 2015?
