We make these resolutions often out of frustration with ourselves for failing to do them last year. We place such high expectations on ourselves to succeed, that we end up stressing out about any shortcomings in our adherence -- and in the process, blowing our 'stress less' goal. Not really off to a good start, are we?

Have I started doing my job on autopilot? Have I started taking my relationships for granted, not giving them my full attention? I applied it to my eating habits, my exercise, my sleep... even the way I clean my house.

Have you ever seen your cat burned out? Of course you haven't. That's because he's a MASTER relaxer. Lounging in the sun, having a little stretch, a big yawn, an afternoon nap (they don't call it a cat nap for nothing) -- your cat really knows how to chill. So learn from it.

It all starts from the day they're born. I am proposing that, to paraphrase any person from England, you start the way you mean to go on. Let them take over your night's sleep for longer than a year? Hmmmm. Jeopardize every social plan you try to commit to? Not good.

Instead of thinking about what physical goals you want to reach (lose 20 pounds, make six figures, buy a house), you think about the why of these things.

Imagine that you didn't have to take flak from anyone, disappoint anyone, or impress anyone. Or pretend that everyone was so concerned with his or her own business that they wouldn't pay any notice to your own career choices. What would you choose if nobody was looking?
One who wants to take in the Syrian refugees presents only the narrow facts and arguments that support such a conclusion. One who wants to refuse these refugees also only presents the narrow facts and arguments . All you hear is misleading simplicity -- from both sides.

There will come a time when your decision making will be increasingly restricted. You can prepare for these changes through planning and communications with trusted people in your life and this can help ensure your autonomy is supported and respected.
Without limiting your day-to-day decisions, you can easily burnout on the decision-making process, which leads to poor choices and the potential for error. This phenomenon is otherwise known as decision fatigue.
When we feel stuck, our usual tactics -- giving ourselves more time, assessing pros and cons, soliciting our friends for advice -- don't really help, and in fact, can escalate our anxiety.
