With 2018 in the rear view, we say to the New Year: Hey 2019!
Let's start it off right by not making any resolutions. Say what? Come on! Most of us make resolutions and nearly all of us fall short of our goals. Statistics vary, but while we set out to lose weight, get fit and wake up early in the New Year, by mid-February or even mid-January we've pushed our skinny jeans to the back of the closet and we’re hitting the snooze button. This year, why not think about making your resolution a habit instead of something you check off your list? It's more sustainable, and it's a bit more scientific when you can think of it in terms of training your brain with a cue, a routine and a reward. Check out Charles Duhigg’s 2012 book. "The Power of Habit." It’s an oldie but a goodie and definitely an invaluable read.
We also like the idea of setting intentions instead of resolutions. Like a habit, they’re more sustainable and more like a marathon than a sprint. Ours look something like this: have faith and be fearless. Regardless of how you dive into the New Year, we wish you health and prosperity as you train your brain with new cues for positive habits and sustainable intentions!
