I’ve heard that it’s best to start your resolutions for the New Year as the old year draws to a close. My resolutions are simple for 2017. I can see the finish line with the most important goal: submit my PhD thesis this year. I’ve also achieved another before the year even began: reduce coffee consumption. No more than two full strength coffees for me in a day (though I’m being lenient and allowing myself unlimited tea until I submit my thesis).
I have fallen out of the habit of daily journal writing with the nature of the last few years. I’m starting a new journal for 2017 to record my progress and clear my mind each night for the new day ahead.
All the best with your plans for 2017.
