Do something fun these past few weeks? Create your own celebration board!

Everyone is feeling blue after the holidays and New Year’s resolutions can feel so depressing.

"All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day"
“All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day”

Every New Year, I brainstorm resolutions in my head. “Oh I need to lose more 30 pounds this year. Oh I need to be nicer to my neighbors, coworkers, and friends.”
