Our resolutions, what's yours? David's take
David Tindell here, Marketing Assistant at Union Plus, and I have been asked to share my New Year's Resolution for 2014.
After long hours of due diligence, researching the latest trends in resolutions, getting distracted by a flood of Wikipedia links, learning everything about I can about Danny Devito, forgetting what I was writing about, and Kevin Cheng reminding me to hurry up and post, I have resolved that I plan on getting more sleep.
Why? Because sleep is AWESOME...and I don’t want to look 50 when I’m 30. Seriously, I feel great after a good night's sleep. I’m more relaxed, more productive, and the people I can’t stand miraculously become the people that just annoy me.
It’s really one of the few things in life that I’ve come to treasure more with time, like singing “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme Song” in the car or Halloween costumes involving a clever pun. Have you ever had too much sleep? I think not. And yet, between juggling work and graduate studies, binging on Netflix and attending whatever socializing my girlfriend drags me to, it’s very hard to keep a proper bedtime.
With so many activities, how does a go-getter like me find the time to sleep? By trimming the fat on my daily routine.
For example, by planning to complete my graduate work earlier, I will have more time to set a concrete bed time and actually keep it. Another priority for 2014 will be to move closer to where I work. Cutting down on my commute time will add hours to everything else. I do plan on watching less television, but only until the Walking Dead and House of Cards returns!
