This year, don’t make it so easy to disappoint yourself. Below, a few highly achievable resolutions — and how we recommend you carry them out — in 2015.
I resolve to work smarter, not harder
We’re with you. Being “busy” no longer sounds cool. So make technology your bitch (not the other way around) and use Instacart for groceries, Wype to clean your car and Handstand to deliver personal trainers to your door.
I resolve to go camping. A lot.
Nature is good for you. That’s just science. To get into the great outdoors, we recommend Hipcamp, which helps you find a camping spot in California. Also of note: Ventana’s new campsite. If you’re partial to fishing, we heartily endorse tenkara fly fishing and this rig from Patagonia.
I resolve to go to more shows
I resolve to decorate like a man
Step one: take down those fanboy posters. You’re not in your twenties anymore. Step two: peruse (and purchase) the vintage photos on Archivast and visit Mr. MusicHead, the gallery that specializes in the art of music (your correspondent attended the Prince show, and it was stellar).
I resolve to have a more comfortable home
Good call. Get inspiration from home tours, like the ones from Dwell. Then either hire an online designer like Metro 66 and redecorate one room at a time. Parachute will help you with the sheets on your bed.
