My New Year’s resolutions:
- Keep up journaling, offline and on the blog
I would like to do at least one blog post per week and three offline journal entries. I want to establish a regular writing habit.
- Keep up meditation practice
Study Buddhist ideas and keep up with the meditation practice I started in earnest last fall. I’ve been going to a thirty minute meditation session for about a year, because it’s offered at work (and I will also continue with this), but my regular practice at home is what will bring the practice to a higher level. I’ve been doing 45 minutes almost every day since November and it’s already changing my daily life – I’m trying to live more mindfully and it’s working, even if only in small ways. The more I’m meditating, the easier and more interesting it seems to be getting.
- Read more books and reduce my time surfing the Internet
I had this goal last year too, and it went well.
- Learn Latin
Not sure if I’m really serious about this. I want to do it, but my other goals may get in the way. Also: procrastination (see below).
- Stop procrastinating so much
Mindfulness might help with this.
