The only advice on resolutions you need

Oliver Burkeman’s “This column will change your life” in Saturday’s Guardian Weekend magazine is always a worthwhile and insightful read, not least this one linked below. His ruminations on New Year’s resolutions have led to him to conclude that if you must make them, there are only three really worth making:

1) Meditate- which pays huge lifestyle dividends for relatively little input, studies show – even making people less racist apparently.

2) Cut out the lifestyle white noise and concentrate on the stuff that is really important to you.

3) Cut yourself, and everyone around you, huge amounts of slack as we are all basically flawed numpties trying to negotiate a bewildering world (I’m paraphrasing a little here).

Basically, do less but do it better, more mindfully and more kindly.
