The new year is now officially underway. You’ve (almost) adjusted to writing “2018” instead of “2017,” you’ve finally made executive decisions around throwing out all the stale leftover Christmas cookies instead of keeping them around “just in case,” and your kids have reverted back to a state of pre-holiday break chaos. You’re still working toward those awesome resolutions you set last week — if you’re anything like Gracie, at least — but that motivation you felt in the first week of the year is waning. Does this sound like you?
It’s OK. You can tell us. You really can.
There’s no shame in losing energy around those goals. We promise. As long as you pick it back up eventually.
Resolutions are always the most exciting when they’re actually being made. Sustaining the energy around them — especially in the anti-climatic, post-holiday drag that is January — is actually really difficult. See? It’s totally understandable that you’re suddenly less interested in earlier alarms or longer workouts or reduced screen time. You’re definitely not the only one.
Everything’s better with a good soundtrack — and an attitude adjustment, of course, but that’s neither here nor there — so we’ve got your back this month with ten new song recommendations to help perk up your January, New Year’s resolution-ing blues. We’ve been flowing and grooving to these tunes over the last few weeks on the mat and beyond, and we hope you love them as much as we do. If you’re hungry for more (or if you happen to live in a cold, snowy climate and are just really, really bored), you can find all of these songs — and so many more — on the bulldog Spotify channel.
