I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, simply because I don’t usually think to. I do, however, get antsy for change on a fairly regular basis, and generally act on that by rearranging my room or buying a new pair of shoes or something else superficial.
I’m in the mood to make changes again, and this time I’m resolving to make a few healthy changes. Not big ones, but good ones. Therefore….
I will not procrastinate on homework.
I will either jog or do some kind of exercises for half an hour a day.
In addition to my regular reading before I go to bed, I’ll read a chapter of Psalms every morning.
I will minimize my junk food consumption.
I will eat healthier in general.
I will continue my one-hour-per-week-weekends-only rule on Facebook.
I will go to bed by 12:30am during the week.
I will read at least one chapter from C.S. Lewis per week.
I will, at least, scan the headlines of 3 major news sources every day.

And a few superficial changes just for good measure…
I will listen to more music.
I will dye my hair a more adventurous shade of red.

In the past, I’ve made similar resolutions and only ever managed to follow through with them for a month or two. I’m going to make sticky notes for these and strategically place them around my room so that they’re constantly guilt-tripping me into remembering.
