19 for 2019

My favourite podcast right now is Happier with Gretchen Rubin and her sister, Elizabeth Craft. Their focus on happiness through interesting topics and habit change challenges makes me feel optimistic and inspired.

One thing they do every year is create a list of things they want to accomplish that will make them happier. It’s a different way of goal setting than I’m used to and it makes a lot of sense to mark the new year with a few intentions. The idea is that you check in with the list a few times throughout the year to remind yourself of what you want to accomplish. Here’s the podcast where Gretchen and Elizabeth share their 19 for 2019, and here are mine:
