HAPPY NEW YOU

Welcome to a new day, a new year and a new you. I truly believe that this year is going to be absolutely amazing.  Do you remember saying to someone “I learn something new every day?” If that is true then you have learned 365 things last year and now it is up to you to put them into practice. Ah there’s the rub. It is very difficult to change our habits. Especially when we are overwhelmed. No matter how hard we work at it we have to;
 1. Take action.
 2. Believe in ourselves.
 3. Create workable solutions
Actually you can take a piece of paper and write down some of the outstanding happenings in your life last year. You are in luck if you keep a log, Journal or have a calendar in your phone, in a planner, on the wall or on line. Still seems overwhelming doesn’t it?

At the end of each month I write up a monthly review of everything that has happened during the month. Obviously we don’t have everything written down because it would be too much information. I highlight the important issues based on people I have met, activities that I have done and ideas that have come into my mind.

Many years our New Year’s Resolutions fall by the wayside and never get completed. I am speaking from years of experience. However, I have changed and also learned the secret to change.  We become enthusiastic and so do our friends and associates. There are more people attending the gym or Y in January. More people go to church and because budgets may be less, fewer items are being brought into homes in January.

Make three New Year’s resolutions and keep them small so you have a possibility of creating ways to achieve them.  Make one that requires full body action. After I have lost 5 pounds I will reward myself by going to the theater with a friend to see Star Wars or whatever you decide. Saying you will lose weight is too big, broad and overwhelming.
The second New Year Resolution is to believe in yourself. Therefore it is time to write to yourself and tell yourself how wonderful you are/ Go ahead I dare you! Now your third resolution is to create a workable solution. Start with only one. Mine is to find more time in my day by delegating the food shopping to my husband and now it is up to him to reach his goal.
Remember you want to: 1. Take action 2. Believe in yourself and 3. Create a workable solution. Keep a calendar on the wall.
