Making resolutions that work!
If you’ve been reading headlines like “New Year, New You!” then you need to read this!
|It is the time of year when we get inspired to make big changes, alter our habits, commit to a healthy routine and finally get a handle on everything we need to get a handle on! But why, oh why, after so many years on this planet have we not quite got it all figured out yet? Believe it or not, there is a right way to enact lasting change and it is SO easy!|
Start with something small and actionable (this means that you can make it happen). At this point, baby steps are the right choice: if you surpass your goal, you can make a new one in March or June. Here’s an example (see more with the photos below)- “I will move my body every day” is a great and easy to accomplish goal that is simple to build on throughout the year. For example, if your goal seems too easy a few weeks in, you can alter it to “I will move my body 20 minutes every day”. Every affirmation or resolution that you make should be posted physically in a location you see every day, like on your bathroom mirror (chalk markers or post it notes!) and you should say it out loud to increase its effectiveness.
If you feel like you need more help getting the year off to a great start, Dr. Katja Magus specializes in lifestyle transformation- helping you make the changes you need to feel healthy and happy in the New Year.
Check out our affirmation and resolution examples (with photos!) below 🙂
|“I will eat more vegetables” is a much more effective affirmation or resolution than “I will give up sugar”- which conjures up all sorts of deprivation and sadness….who wants to “give up” stuff anyway?|
” I will move my body every day” is a great resolution that is easy to accomplish…much more effective than saying “I will lose this flab”….body positive messages always WIN!
“I am going to start the year pain free” is an example of an awesome affirmation that we wholly approve of. See you soon!
