1.  More play.  Cards and games with the kids.  Cards and games with friends.  Tag in the back yard.  Sledding.  Hide and Seek.  Interminable pretend play with preschoolers-- all of it!  As much as I can this year.

2.  Less phone.  So cliche, I know, but more play has to go along with less phone.

3.  Massages every month.  Such a good stress reliever for me, and we have a complimentary medicine benefit through our HMO-- it's silly not to take advantage, so I will.

4.  Pedicures every month.  Such an easy way to feel pretty-- why not?

5.  NO MORE PROCRASTINATING AT WORK.  It just makes me feel bad and prevents me from doing fun projects.  So.  I teach EARLY on Tuesdays, and I am also going to be at work by 9:00 on Thursdays, too (yes, for me early is 9:30.  I KNOW).  I just generally want to be more conscious of compartmentalizing my time.

6. More Blog.  A post every day would be AWESOME, but I'd settle for most days of the week.

7.  A book a week.

8.  At least 10,000 steps, 5 miles, 10 flights of stairs, and 2150 calories burned EVERYDAY NO MATTER WHAT.


  1. I love #1.
    I really enjoy playing games with my nephews. I feel victorious that they happily leave TV/iPads to play board games with me.
    I also have a group of adult friends for Game Night. We aim for once a month and we have the best time. We take turns hosting and the host provides dinner. The guests bring snacks & beverages.

  2. These are great goals! I love the focus on play. And I love how ambitious you are! Those ten flights of stairs always elude me.
