We're all about setting realistic goals
Sure, the idea of swimming with dolphins, climbing Everest, learning Mandarin, skydiving and playing a symphony on the bassoon is fantastic. But this year we want to make a to-do list that’s doable – one that won’t leave us feeling like we’ve fallen short in twelve months time.
Eat all the food you buy at the supermarket. All of it (not all at once, just before it grows mould). Basically, be less wasteful.
Keep plants alive, perhaps even some plants that can bear fruit or vegetables.
Put down your ipad and buy a newspaper (at least once a week).
Forget far-flung locations, get to know the country you live in.
Sleep in a treehouse, or a cabin made of wood. A garden shed counts.
Wear a snake like a necklace, or a tarantula like a hand ornament. Essentially, get acquainted with something that terrifies you. You could also get to know a fear-inducing philosophy or a scientific concept, if you’re feeling cerebral.
Remember: marathon runners are awe-inspiring but that doesn’t mean you should become one.Start walking part or all of the way to work everyday instead.
Learn more about your personal history. Quiz your family while you still can.
Travel solo. Take yourself on a mini-break and learn to love your own company.
Crash a party. You are never too old.
Make a new friend. It’s never too late.
Make a YouTube video. Potentially become the good kind of viral sensation.
Pay for dinner. Just because you think they’re so cool.
Be a better host.
Give more compliments. And get better at receiving them.
Grow out your armpit hair, and remember that no part of your body is disgusting.
Spend 24 hours naked.
Sleep under the stars. Lying down outside, away from light pollution is TOTALLY DOABLE.
