Did you know New Year’s resolutions are said to go back to the ancient Babylonians around 4,000 years ago? According to this History.com article, a similar practice occurred in ancient Rome after Julius Caesar established January 1st as the beginning of the new year around 46 B.C. Many people have given up on making resolutions because they feel it just leads to disappointment after 2 weeks to a month. Yet, I don’t think we should give up on them. It just requires us to set realistic goals and to strategically plan how to hit them. Articles like this can help us make and keep our resolutions while full websites like this and this from experts can aid us as well. The new year is a perfect time to think about what improvements you would like to make in your life as you look back on the old year and ahead to the new.
While improvements are on your mind, perhaps the start of the year would be a good time to think of home improvements you’d like to make as well. Do you have a lead water line? Set a goal to get that replaced (definitely sooner than later if you’re drinking lead). Is your water bill high due to a leaking line? Set a resolution to get it fixed.
