New Years: Where Will You Be In 2016?

New Years Eve is about three things: New Years plans, New Years resolutions, and publicly swearing off both.

What is it about New Years Eve that makes everyone go bananas? You bemoan that it's the "most over-rated night of the year", stress anyway about where you'll be and who you'll be with at midnight, madly make New Year's resolutions while claiming that you don't need the excuse of the new year to set yourself goals, and, if we're all honest, run about trying to see everyone when all you really want is a nap and the last of the Christmas chocolate.

It's exhausting, that's what it is. New Years is flat out exhausting.

But since we know it's not going anywhere, we're here to make the whole thing easier. Here you'll find articles to help you kick whatever goals you've set yourself in 2016, because we all need a little help when the motivation runs dry. Right?
