What if this year, instead of new resolutions to do things, you resolved to identify the obstacles that stopped you achieving your previous resolutions?

The social media addictions you refuse to admit are harmful, the toxic relationships which suck up your time and energy, the time-wasting pacifiers like television and consoles, the excess booze and food you say are fine but really need to go, checking email 150 times a day, the constant notifications on your phone, the books you will never read, the films you will never watch.

Resolve to eradicate these valueless things, then pick a resolution that will add value to your life: lose weight, write that book, read more, take more walks, use that gym membership, call your mum.

Saying no to the obstacles means you can say yes to the resolutions.
