In the United States, it is traditional to make New Year’s resolutions in January.  However, because my life is organized around an academic year, I make my “New Year’s” resolutions in August.  The year I was going to turn 34, mine were all about becoming a stronger person, both emotionally and physically. 

I was going to work out regularly and eat better—(sound familiar?).  I signed up for a yoga class called “The Warrior Workout” two days a week to add some interest to my normal treadmill and weights routine.  For my mind, I signed up for a Zen meditation class.  I recommitted to writing at minimum two hours a day, and studying about writing or doing other reading at least one hour a day.
