I’ve mentioned before that I don’t usually make New Year’s Resolutions. If I decide that I’d like to change something about my life or my behavior, I usually just do it because my willpower is such that if I don’t strike while I’m motivated, it will never happen. But this year, I decided to make a resolution for myself.
It’s becoming painfully obvious that I don’t sleep enough. Between work, this blog and my life, I am just not getting the sleep I need to thrive. I might get six hours per night, and I really do best on 8.5. So I’m not even getting close to what I need.
To reach my goal, I’m going to have to sacrifice a full weekend day to blogging. No television. No errands. No brunches. Just blogging.
Am I looking forward to it? Not really. But if it frees up my evenings and gets me to bed before 1:00AM, I’m happy. Or at least, I hope I’ll be happy…and rested.
So do you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, what are you resolving this year? And if you’ve had any resolutions that worked out really well for you in the past, I’d like to hear about those too.
