A little bit of everything good

My mom always says that on the first of the new year, you should do a little bit of everything good: small bits of good habits you want to carry through into the new year.

That’s how I’ve always tried to start every first day of the year, no matter where in the world I am.

This year, I am doing a little of the same here in Rio: go on a short run (96ºF outside!), finish a book where I’m nearly at the end, start a new one, do some writing, do some work, and then, because I am in Brasil: listen to some good music and take a walk to explore and learn more about a new neighborhood.

It allows for a little reflection, a little resetting, and a little bit of conscious forward-thinking about how you should spend the rest of the year.

That’s a little bit of everything good.
