13 for '13…More or Less

Earth model at the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, November 2012

I’m not much for New Year’s Resolutions, because I don’t think there’s anything particularly sacred about January 1 as a benchmark for starting good habits, ending bad ones, or making general life changes. Therefore, the first item on my list is:

  • Revisit, re-evaluate, and recommit to the following twelve items on this list as often as necessary, even if it’s several times a day.

And with that out of the way, here’s what I want to try to make better in the year ahead, more or less:

  • Less sugar
  • Less salt
  • More vegetables
  • More drinking water
  • Less sitting
  • More movement
  • More focus
  • Less procrastination
  • More reading
  • Less blogging
  • More thoughtful writing
  • More connecting

There may be some more specific reading- and blogging-related adjustments to come, but if I blog those, it’ll be in a Sunday Salon post (which I’d like to participate in more, again). However, I will not call any of these changes “New Year’s Resolutions.” Are you making any resolutions not to make New Year’s Resolutions too?

BONUS PSA: My September 2012 post “Always Have a Backup Plan: A ‘Learning Experience'” is being featured on BlogHer.com‘s homepage and in the Blogging & Social Media topic section today. It’s a cautionary tale of the time I blew up my blog template. Learn from my mistakes, and start your New Year off by backing up your blog and your template files!
