A few years ago, friends of mine told me about their February resolution habit. They promised themselves one month of clean living and eating to recover from the holiday excess and make them feel better about winter. They chose Feb because it was less of a cliche, it kept them out of that new year resolutions failure loop, and it was the shortest month!
So for Feb they ate well, didn’t drink and got outside as much as possible. Every year since, I have thought about it but never actually followed through. This year I am following through, to shake off that grey feeling of winter lethargy and get ready for spring. I am not expecting to travel nor to have company for the next few weeks, so this is a good opportunity to relax into it. I will say upfront I am probably not going to give up coffee, I mean, there are limits.
