Evidence-based guidance says to pick a theme, rather than set goal-like New Years Resolutions. A theme can weather the realities of how our climb to recovery or our plummet into dystopia happens to be looking on a given day, and be similarly flexible within our individual life-moments of soaring and inevitable curveballs. A theme offers small nudges when possible to move the trendline we are trying to improve. A theme can be something we already do or have, but give us an opportunity to focus on shifting this in all those little moments for a stretch.
