1. BE MORE RAD
Whether you get your ass out for a snow season, plan a surf trip pronto, or, if geography permits and you live beneath a mountain or oceanic backdrop (YOU LUCKY B**TARD), step out your front door and make the most. TODAY. Failing that…
2. HIT UP YOUR LOCAL SKATE PARK
Outdoor if you live in California or have the hide of a Polar Bear and Afro the size of an umbrella, indoor for the rest of us. Don’t have one within reach then you’d better…
3. RIDE A BIKE
Daily. Everywhere. Don’t bleat about the weather, just get some waterproofs, it will make you happy, EVERYDAY. For real. As will this…
4. FRET LESS
About your appearance, your body, what your pals think. People really don’t care and if they do then don’t be friends with them. It’s that simple. Easier said than done? Take a break from your own head and full on immerse yourself in someone else’s…
5. READ MORE BOOKS
My finger’s cracked down the middle from smartphone scrolling and perma-laptop use. My digital devices are now breaking my body as well as melting my mind, pretty soon I’ll be typing this with a bone stump except no cos the fightback starts here! Work is work but for downtime especially at weekends from now on I’m all about the books. Real paper ones too. Get some book related inspiration here.
6. PAY FOR SHIT YOU LOVE
And on that subject, given what we know about a certain online bookstore, I’m going to try and buy from real shops, plus always pay for all my music and tv watching. Supporting the artists innit. What else, oh yeah given the extreme Xmas excess it’s good to start the year with this mantra…
7. EAT HEALTHY
Well in the weeks at least, do what you want at weekends. Not cos we give a fck what you look like but if you eat ok stuff it’ll make you feel saner and live longer giving you more time to be more rad. This is the best food site ever btw and Elena Hight cooks up a super cool chip dip combo for us here.
8. SPREAD THE LOVE
Obvious one this. Be nice to people, not just your homies and not just in real life. Hating’s overrated.
9. LOVE YOUR JOB
Or leave it and get another one you do froth over, most of the time anyway. Life’s too short to be this guy
