Every year on Jan. 1, millions of people (seriously, 40 to 45 percent of American adults) list all the improvements they want to make in the New Year.
At Cranberry Patch, we’re at no different—certainly not your editor.
At the start of the New Year, I always make the resolution to eat healthier and to exercise more. That pretty much ends as soon as I’m offered a slice of someone’s birthday cake. How can you say no to that?
I’m hoping to change things this year by publicly declaring my resolutions to Patch readers. Will you join me?
OK, here is goes. Again, I pledge to eat healthier (I’m enjoying my last donut of 2012 while I write this) and exercise more.
This is a difficult thing for a news editor, but I’m going to try to stress less in 2013. In 2012, I really enjoyed taking yoga, which is a fabulous way to relax the mind. For more tips on how to de-stress in the New Year, click here.
Also on the agenda is getting together with my sister to take my Grandma Bruni to eat at Jimmy Wan’s or House of Chen. After years of cooking, and eating, pasta and other Italian foods, Chinese food is newly discovered delight for her. Maybe I can even talk her into trying sushi. Please leave any other restaurant suggestions in the comment section below.
I’m also resolving (at his request) to take an interest in one of my husband’s many, many outdoor activities. He likes skiing, fishing and hunting. I like reading, shopping and generally staying indoors. Sigh.
So, what are your New Year’s resolutions?
Please share them in the comment section below. The hope is that by shouting them out on Patch, we’ll be less likely to break them.
And for goodness sake, if you spot me with a donut in my hand in 2013, please come up and yell at me.
