50 Easily Achievable Resolutions for the New Year:
Resolutions to Enrich Your Life
#1. Learn a new word every day.
#2. Tell others you are learning a new word every day so they can ask you, “Hey, what word did you learn today?” – every day.
# 3. Learn a new number every day.
# 4. Go outside more often – or stay inside less (your choice).
# 5. See how long you can go without cleaning out the fridge.
# 6. Pick one day out of the week where you promise to not look in the mirror before you go anywhere – call this day “Self-Reflection” day.
# 7. Use the word “party” to describe the things you don’t like to do – this will lower expectations for actual parties – making them much more satisfying!

# 8. Host a Tax Filing Party – take a drink any time you satisfy legal compliance!
# 9. Anytime you go out to eat, ask the server if there will be free bread.
# 10. Read more lists of things telling you to do more things.
# 11. Tell a friend to read this list.

# 13. Call your least favorite senator and pretend like you meant to call your favorite senator when someone picks up.
Enjoy a good laugh after you hang up.
Resolutions to Help Form Good Habits
