Did you make any resolutions for this New Year? If you did, how long did it take you to break them? Not long, I’ll bet, because the type of promises that we make ourselves at this time of year rarely last. And the most common reason for this is that they’re not promises at all, just restrictive punishments. Let’s rethink this right now and take steps to make life more fun, rather than less. If we’re going to make a promise to ourselves, let it be that we’ll take time to enjoy ourselves more. ‘More fun and less guilt’, would be a better resolution for most people.
