Advice For Making, Succeeding At New Year's Resolution : Consider This from NPR Back in November, comedian Robyn Schall found an old list of her goals for 2020. She shared the list in a video that went viral — because it turned out a lot of people could relate to a year that didn't go as planned.

Gretchen Rubin and R. Eric Thomas have some advice on how to make 2021 a little better.

Rubin writes books about happiness and habits — her latest is Outer Order, Inner Calm — and she hosts the podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin. Listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Thomas dispenses opinions and wisdom as a senior staff writer at elle.com. He's the author of the memoir Here For It.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
