I resolve…: 30 ways to do better this year

Look, we get it. Cracking open that 2015 calendar gives rise to all manner of inspiration—get fit for bathing suit season! Read more books to shine in idle party chit-chat! Bone up on your ballroom skills before your cousin’s autumn wedding! Then suddenly it’s February and, not only have your dancing shoes collected a fine layer of dust, but the only new skill you’ve acquired is figuring out how to get a crispier bread on your nightly grilled cheese (hint: It’s mayonnaise!). We’re here to help, with 30 resolutions and advice from local experts.

Sure, you could continue to think it’s clever to resolve to not make any resolutions at all (O.K., we do too), but we’ve made it easy to do everything from reading more and drinking less to getting a new job and, of course, losing those last 10 pounds. Start by resolving not to make excuses, then get started.
