A new year is a great chance to start fresh and orient yourself toward your goals. That’s why New Year’s resolutions are so exciting — they’re a way to plan out how you’ll be a new and improved person starting January 1st.

But, as many of us have found in our mid-January days, you don’t always get to every New Year’s resolution on the list. There’s guilt when we let our gym membership expire or when we go back on Instagram to scroll for another two hours.
