New Year’s Day is always a time for reflection, revaluation and resolutions.
Often we take a look at our lives, see what is lacking and resolve to “fix” it…all at once.
A flurry of activity, new gym memberships, calorie deficient diets and within 2-3 weeks we are back to where we started, Frustrated, we feel foolish to think that we could make the changes that we want in our lives.
Today, as you reflect, I would urge you to do something simpler.
Definitely take the time to reflect and reevaluate; understand where you are and where you want to be.
Take the time to look at your core behaviours:
Instead of trying to “fix” everything, all at once, look for your good habits and try to build upon them, extend and expand them. Start with habits that you already have, tune and tweak them to be a bit healthier, and a bit more consistent. Give yourself time to incorporate these changes one or two at a time. Finally, make the time to reflect everyday, for a few moments at least, like it is New Year’s Day and realize that every day is a good day to be be a little bit healthier.
At Wellness Garage, we believe in the power of habits, and that everyday is a good day to be healthy.
