New year, new you! Easy to proclaim to the hordes of people surrounding you as the ball drops in Times Square. Not so easy to live it the following week when you're back to groggily slinging spreadsheets at your desk. If you're the kind of person that makes a bunch of really ambitious exciting New Year's Resolutions, but always fails to follow through, here's your opportunity for some redemption.
First, remember that you are not alone. Many people struggle with big amorphous goals. Next, lower your expectations. Your New Year's Resolution should be relatively small and not require a complete shift in lifestyle. More, "run once a week for pleasure" than "run a sub 3-hour marathon." If you're looking for some suggestions of more limited resolutions, we've taken this latest edition of 20 Things Under $20 to collect some of the best stuff we've discovered that will help you improve your life. Whether that's an alarm clock you absolutely cannot ignore, an affordable cologne for someone just getting into scents, or stamps, glorious stamps! Hopefully, you'll still be feeling the new year, new you vibe next December.
