The Christmas break is over so I suppose it's time to get working on those 2014 resolutions. Here are a few of mine:

No cell phone after dinner- I am completely addicted to my phone and the Christmas break has only made it worse. From now on in the evenings, the phone stays upstairs. No social media, no games. Be present. Read more.
Make fewer plans- We had plans every weekend from August-December last year and it was complete mayhem. This year, I'm trying to contain my inner planner and keep some weekends free. The second part of this is to not feel guilty about saying no to events. sometimes, it's ok to stay home and trade socializing for slippers and Homeland. Just be honest and let it go.
Eat more dinners at the table- I'm a bit embarrassed to say that we eat in front of the TV every night. A couple nights a week- dinner off of the table- not our laps.

All of my resolutions are things that result in being more present and spending quality time with the people I love. Each one is simple, but achievable. Happy 2014!

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the no cell phone after dinner. I may have to steal that one. (not sure if I can survive a whole evening without facebook or candy crush) :)
