Do this now. It's easy.
PSA (and hat to +Pim van Pelt who reminded me): if you use Google services at all, please visit

Takeout is one of the coolest things that Google does. It's a backup of almost all of the data that is yours and is about you, ready for you to take with you if ever you want or need to leave your Google account. All the email in your gmail account (in mbox format!) all your photos synced from the photos app, all your search history, files in drive... you get the idea.

It's your data and a bunch of hard working folks at Google made sure you could get it whenever you want. And the new year is a good time to make a backup of your own.

So do that. Do it now. It's not that hard and it's totally worth it.
