During the holiday, Jews are instructed to live or dwell as much as possible in a make-shift booth (or sukkah) that is covered with a roof of foliage that provides shade from the sun during the day but permits one to see the light of the large stars at night.

To start, try not to frame your resolution in the future “I’m going to”, “should”, “could”, “ought to”, “will”, “must”, “have to”, and the like.
