Long before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, we all start wondering: How am I going to be the best version of myself in the new year? That’s right, the time has come to make some resolutions.
Whether you want to finally train for that obstacle course race, be able to nail pull-ups, or simply remember to take your multivitamin every day, there are so many ways to take 2020 to the next level.
To inspire our own self-care and help us make 2020 our best year yet, we asked YOU to share your best-self to-do lists for the New Year. Here are some of our favorites.
