It’s 2015 and many have put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) in order to make improvements this year. Often times resolutions are very effective in kick-starting a new diet, exercise routine, or overall attitude change. Many times resolutions are difficult to maintain and are abandoned by the end of January (or sooner).
Because I love new beginnings, New Year’s Resolutions are very “calming” for me since they remind me of the ability to change your situation …..no matter what, no matter when. This year, to avoid falling into the “perfection trap”, I am going to make one main resolution instead of several detailed ones (that I wouldn’t keep anyway). I am resolving to make, remake, or amend my more specific resolutions on a daily basis. I resolve to do this early each day, write down fresh (or refreshed) strategies to make progress, and review them during my day as I proceed. I think this will be a good way to give myself new motivation each day rather than simply focusing on whether or not I am doing everything “right.” Also, I love reserving the right to change my mind!
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? What method works well for you?
Happy New Year Moms! Have a perfectly imperfect 2015:) Take good care of you!
