I bet I can guess what you are doing right now.
Christmas has past and you are starting to contemplate your New Year’s Resolutions.
As I’ve stated in the past, I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Resolutions. I think it’s important to set a goal when it makes sense to you, not based on a random date on the calendar.
But since I know you are doing it anyway, you might as well do it right.
I want you to start the New Year on a positive note and perhaps setting your bar a little bit lower than normal. Instead of the big “New Year, New Me” proclamation most people make, I want you to take it one step at a time.
My challenge to you is to pick one positive step, one small change in your life and stick with it for 21 days. Why 21 days? Because that’s how long most experts say it takes to form a habit. Remember, it’s not about quick fixes, it’s about new way of living. So whatever you resolve to do, I want it to become a habit.
Need some suggestions? How about:
- Walking 30 minutes a day
- Giving up soda
- Eating breakfast everyday
- Journaling your food everyday
It’s not that I think you are not capable of more. I believe you can do anything you set your mind to. What I want is for you to start with some basics and then build from there. I don’t want you to go all out, as many do, then burn out. Small steps lead to big changes.
So what’s your first step to a New You going to be?
