Gretchen Rubin talks New Year's Resolutions

One of my Facebook friends posted this great article called "5 Questions to Ask Yourself About Your New Year's Resolutions," by Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project. I feel like it's hard to do a fresh take on making great resolutions, but I love her approach.

Here's her first question:
"1. Ask: “What would make me happier?” It might mean more of something good —more fun with friends, more time for a hobby. It might be less of something bad—less yelling at your kids, less nagging of your spouse. It might be fixing something that doesn’t feel right—more time spent volunteering, a move. Or maybe you need to get an atmosphere of growth in your life by learning something new, helping someone, or fixing something that isn’t working properly." (credit: Gretchen Rubin)

The rest of her questions are great too - but click over to the article and read them in Gretchen's own words. I thought I had my New Year's Resolutions all figured out, but her questions got me thinking....
