Don’t get caught up in the hype of making New Year’s resolutions. You’re lying to yourself for the most part and will not commit. Why, do you ask? Because usually these resolutions are unrealistic goals that are borrowed and/or copied from unattainable and unrelatable sources.
What to do if you want to make changes.
Think about your life and what you want from it. Do you want to be healthier? Do you want to be more proactive in your professional and personal life? Then start with a small steps and eventually your steps will turn into a brisk walk and ultimately a run. This is what you call movement towards progress.
If you want to be healthier, exercise, eat less junk food, drink more water etc. Beginning small in this case refers to creating a day to day momentum of completing goals so you can start off by limiting the amount of junk food that you eat, lessening the amount each day. Then eventually, you’ll end up eating it may be twice a week, then once and finally none at all. The key is not to deprive yourself of what you love completely, but to lessen the dosage as you go along. This is a realistic and healthy goal.
An achievable goal.
Always be positive and have a good attitude despite the things that happen, because life is what we make it. As we usher in 2019, let us always count our blessings and be grateful.
