21 Ways To Make Your Life Infinitely Better In 2017

A big NOPE to rigid resolutions that fill you with dread.

New idea: You don't need to commit yourself to new habits and behaviors you actually dread in an effort to become a more evolved version of yourself in the new year.

If you do feel like putting some extra effort into practicing self-care and enjoying yourself as you do it, we have some ideas.

1. Actually say "no" to going out when you just want to stay in.

2. Stop reading a book as soon as you realize it's boring AF/you hate it.

3. Leave your Sundays wide open so that you end the weekend doing exactly what you want to do.

4. Teach yourself how to mix your favorite cocktail.

5. Or maybe even start to collect the makings of a home bar.

6. And also learn how to brew a delicious cup of coffee.

7. Learn how to take an amazing selfie.

8. Commit to silencing your phone more often so you can enjoy uninterrupted "me" time.

9. Actually take your lunch breaks.

10. And even your vacation days for that matter.

11. Stop doing a kind of exercise you hate.

12. And find some kind of movement you love.

13. Actually eat breakfast (every now and again) by mastering simple, delicious breakfast toasts.

14. Instead of eliminating certain foods from your diet, add more nutritious and delicious stuff.

15. Make a standing date to FaceTime with your long-distance BFF.

16. Practice accepting compliments.

17. Finally say buh-bye to anyone whose feed you hate-read.

18. Reread all the Harry Potter books.

19. Set up an auto-transfer that puts $5 in your savings account every week.

20. And after 52 weeks, take yourself and a special someone out with that ~$260.

21. Show yourself some love each and every time you do something for self-care.
