REALISTIC RESOLUTIONSJanuary 1, 2014
Hands high if you’ve ever promised your body or mind something fresh for the New Year and failed by the third week of January. Yeah, we know. That’s why we’ve come up with a solid set of resolutions to boss 2014 with. If you fail, we’re seriously worried for you.
We’re not talking a diet of rice cakes and cauliflower here. We all know avoiding your most loved 10-inch tall, medium-rare burger with extra bacon because you’re “watching your weight” will ultimately end in you crying outside McDonalds at 2am. Skip the torture and throw on extra fries. Go on, we dare you.
For all those taking a break from “going out” this year, think again. Who wants to spend the miserable months before spring in an endless cycle of work-sleep-work? So in the prime of your life, PARTY HARD – make memories with your friends and avoid the on-set of old age and nights watching Emmerdale while you can.
TAKE MORE NAPS
You heard right. If you’re the kind of non-stop party animal (#legend) to burn the candle at both ends, your body is screaming for a few extra ZZZ’s. Take a nap, feel better, and stop acting like a zombie when you need to be at your best. Easy-peasy…
The simplest word in the human language is also the easiest to avoid. Count how many times you said “no” instead of “yes” over the last 12 months. Oh the shame. Whether it’s fear or laziness, just know that you’ll be letting yourself into some serious treats if you just say “yes” a little more.
E.g. “We’re quitting our jobs to travel to Brazil. We’ll probably mess around in waterfalls and live with indigenous tribes for a few months. Wanna come?”… YES
You may well be scheduling an intense workout for 2014. STOP NOW. Here’s some circumstances that’ll burn calories without your mind even realising.
Waking up late and running for your train = exercise.
Walking home at 4am because you missed the bus = exercise.
Throwing mad shapes on the dancefloor = exercise.
Carrying ten shopping bags of biscuits back to your house = exercise.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
