I’ve never been one to make New Year Resolutions; I’m not sure why other than I like to make daily or weekly resolutions and I teach my clients to do the same. Making a daily/weekly resolution seems more reachable. Each year, each month, even each day is a great place to start over. Decide what biggest change you want to make and renew your resolve every morning..every hour if that helps.
Let’s look at what a resolution is. As a verb, resolve means to 1-find a solution to a matter 2-decide firmly on a course of action. As a noun, resolve means 1-firm determination to do something. They work together when you make a list of resolutions; a sort of “bucket list” for the year.
Have you made any resolutions? How reachable are they? What steps will help you resolve your “bucket list for the year”?
Even though it is past January 1st, don’t throw it away, use the next 2 weeks to decide on your new year resolution(s), don’t make them too overwhelming, and don’t over-do it with the number of things you want to resolve this year. Take a step at a time, and if you feel as though you fell back, forgot, cheated, slipped…or whatever word you use, don’t sweat it, there is no failure, just brush your thoughts off and continue on. Write your resolution somewhere you can read it every day. Set reminders on your phone, your calendar or anywhere throughout your home.
Chin up with a smile and forward bound!
Happy, Healthy, New Year to you!
