Ditch Your New Year Resolutions

Ditch Your New Year Resolutions

My favorite thing about the new year is hope. You can feel it all around you. It’s a new beginning, a new opportunity.

I find that at this time of year, people often start nit-picking themselves and their lives. If not done cautiously, this can be a very negative thing. While I’m all for trying to improve yourself and your life, it should come from a place of hope and love - not a feeling of inadequacy or obligation.

So this year I challenge you to ditch your “New Year Resolutions” and try the following instead:

  • Take a look at your past year and take an inventory of all the amazing things you’ve done and accomplished.

  • Write a grateful list.

  • Make a list of opportunities you’d like to try to take advantage of in the new year.

  • If you do set goals for the new year, set positive personal goals for yourself that don’t include body-shaming. Rather than focusing on weight, size, etc., frame your goal to something you can achieve that isn’t body focused. For example- This year I’m going to run (enter specific name) 5k. Or, I’m going to sign myself up for the ballet classes I’ve always wanted.

  • Do a reset for the new year. Clean your house, apartment, room, etc. Organize that stack of books in the corner and donate what you no longer need.

  • Participate in a night of self-indulgence. There’s nothing wrong with staying in and pampering yourself to start the new year off right.

Happy New Year, Darlings.
