    New Year's Resolutions

    I guess these fall in the challenges category. Are you making any? Care to share?

    Yes, to stop letting my family push me around. To be WAY more assertive with family.

    To paint some pictures to hang on my walls is my goal for the coming months.
    Life is quite simple but satisfactory otherwise so - keep on keeping on.

    To continue the progress I made with the Optimize program I joined in February 2020. in 300 days I:

    Started a "coffee time with God" 11-minute morning meditation, which I never break
    Started a daily exercise short self-directed program of planks, push-ups and walk/runs.
    Learned about the mechanics of breathing and the importance of not mouth-breathing and practice deep, mindful breathing daily
    Upped my journaling
    Read spiritual texts and wisdom from classic and modern authors daily
    Nearly cut out all alcohol
    Plan my days daily and am more disciplined and focused
    Evaluate my days at days end
    Adjusted my attitude with regard to work and family
    (try to) Shut down technology every day around 8pm (getting better at this, but not perfect!)
    Eat more mindfully

    With so many new habits installed, I think I need 2021 to make sure I keep them up.

    This is a very inspirational list, catherine. I may borrow some of these if you don't mind.

    If I had any they would just be exercise, take daily walks. Work with hand weights after that. Someday the gyms will be safe again, someday, I used to go twice a week and lift, and would try it again. Maybe eat more berries or other particularly healthy foods. I mean things are basically ok, and I don't do earth shattering resolutions, I would not keep them, I have an amount I save etc., I just want to stay healthy, and of course do a bit more when covid ends than I do these days.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I don't do resolutions, but I do love lists and plans and goals! I have 2 things in mind so far for 2021.
    You know when I say a book is on my list or that I am going to add it to my list? Well this is the list (or lists), and some books have been on here for years. I'm usually pretty tidy and methodical, but this is quite a mess. I think I'm going to work my way through the first page, and either read them or remove them, since I'm pretty sure I don't even want to read some of them anymore. I did order an annotated Lolita yesterday to kick things off.
    Secondly, I bought a couple of books that are exercise or inspirational books for drawing and sketching. I don't really have any natural talent in this realm, but I think it might be good for me, and maybe also a bit fun to try something outside my usual area of expertise.
