Reprise: A different kind of resolution for a different path to better relationships

This post is part of our Monthly-ish Tips series.

It’s the first week back at work for many of us in the new year, which means that any resolutions resolutely declared are within about 10 days of faltering—at least according to psychologists who say we typically do well for the first couple of weeks and then backslide but there’s a difference between clinical and registered psychologists so I’m not sure if we should believe that. So I’m reprising my plea that we all try something a little different this year. Brace yourself because it may sound more than a little woo-woo.
