Hold on to your horses, some so-called experts call the day of tomorrow the most depressing day of the year…

Spring is a long time to go, the bills of the expensive December month are clogging your mailbox, Trump is on the way, and above al…: Nog lang geen voorjaar, vies weer, de rekeningen van een dure decembermaand verstoppen je mailbox, Trump komt eraan, en bovenal…: all your good resolutions failed…

You started drinking again, the intake was your first and last step into the gym, and yesterday you caved in and devoured a roll of Oreos.

The next best thing is to think: Jeez, what a shame that things didn’t go as planned. But I also know that there’s an advantage for every disadvantage. I’ll have to learn that it’s no use to run around like a headless chicken. I need to focus on the long term (evidence based). I’ll think about what I want my life to look like in a couple of years. Who do I want to be and what will I value?

Then, based on that, you make a plan. Write it down and read it a couple of times. Or: print it out on a large sheet and stick it to the fridge. That will do.
