Resolutions With Links To Start Now!

January 5, 2011

I love this time of year! Many people are starting the new year with renewed focus and goals to enrich their lives. I feel so inspired and motivated by all this positive energy! Every day I read someone’s New Year’s Resolution, and think, “Me too!” Here are a few that I think I can keep with a little help from the internet.

Read The Bible Chronologically: I’m not a fan of rereading books. I already know what happens! This one should be an exception to the rule. I know the story hasn’t changed but I have and my understanding and the associations I make are bound to be very different now. The One Year Bible website is a great resource for anyone joining this challenge.

Yoga and Swimming: Every year I have pledged to get in shape. This year I am reckoning with my asthma and choosing activities I enjoy for personal fulfillment. There are many great Yoga tutorials on YouTube, and Yoga Today offers a free class every week. They also offer classes for as little as $4.

The Happiness Project: This is really a series of goals leading to a more fulfilling life. Start your own Happiness Project here.

Minimize and Organize: I don’t have to organize things if I can get rid of them! For everything else this site is sure to help.

Take the GRE: I have been putting off grad school because I am so scared of this test. The GRE guide books only served to increase my anxiety. Maybe an online class could help me?

Live More With Less: Living on less, with more concern for the environment and social justice is a lifelong goal of ours. This year I want to help others with this resolution. Starting with a series on economical cooking for beginners, we will approach many of the subjects Doris Janzen Longacre was passionate about and share our own experiences trying to improve our impact. For more inspiration check out The Local Cook’s Simple Living Challenge.
