Making small changes: Start small. Imagine little things that can fit into your day seamlessly. Eat more vegetables at lunch. Take deep breaths when you feel stresses. Do some meditation in the morning to reflect. Take a nice walk every day after dinner. Creating big resolutions don’t always work so start small and work up to the bigger ones.
Make having fun one of your resolution: Add a hobby to your life. Join a recreational sports team, take a dance class, or attend a painting class, anything that will make you look forward to it. Create a fun cookbook with your family.
Treat yourself: Instead of cutting out everything “bad” in your life, add some luxury instead. Buy a set of exercise classes or purchase a personal trainer. Splurge on a piece of furniture you really wanted.
Delay Action: The majority of us set unrealistic goals for our new year’s resolution. Instead of cutting out alcohol, sweets, fried foods, or soda, why not just drink or eat less of these throughout the year. Why not figure out how to create long-term habits, rather than just focusing on your new year’s resolution for one month. Maybe take some time to understand that deeper cause of what’s preventing you from long term change.
Do what’s best for you: What interests you to change. What will motivate you to stay focused and healthy. Do you want to be more toned? Want to improve in work? Take up a new language? Do whatever makes you happy. Start the new year off right with attainable goals. Enjoy the process.
