New Year’s “Resolutions” – Did you make some and will you keep them?
Most of us have made a number of New Year’s Resolutions throughout our lives, yet practically every resolution is broken a short time after being made. Why is this failure in achieving resolutions so common and what effect does it have on our life, health and wellbeing. Why do we tell ourselves “This year it will be different”?
What is discovered is that human “steam,” or “willpower” is not always enough to drive our mind and body to comply with the desire to change or achieve new goals. Therefore, we are soon back in the same destructive behaviour that we are so accustomed to.
So why is it so hard for people to change their habits and attain success in their resolutions? Because change is difficult!
One cannot help but ask, “What is the harm in wanting to change negative aspects of my life?” There is nothing wrong with aspiring to improve oneself. This desire to overcome weaknesses and problems is a proper attribute. However, it is a mindset that one should have all year long—actively trying to overcome every day and not just starting on January 1st and lasting just a few days at best.
So what are the benefits of achieving these resolutions? If you manage to keep these promises, it will help make you feel better about yourself. Feeling better about yourself helps create Happiness and also helps promote better Health and Wellbeing.
One of the greatest achievements of all is living a Happy, Healthy fulfilling life with a purpose. We are better as a whole person with balance of Mind, Body, Spirit and Emotions.
• A better attitude
• A positive mindset
• Balanced emotions
• A healthier lifestyle (eating/exercise)
• Better family relationships
• Successful job/careers
May we all therefore, find new joys in living our lives with a purpose.
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
