Goals vs. Resolutions
Monday, December 23, 2019
Two years ago, I stopped making New Year's resolutions; they just never worked for me. I was tired of trying to “resolve”, but was interested in “aiming” for something significant! In the past, I’d think of something that needed resolving and at midnight New Year’s Eve I’d announce it to myself and often to others, but not take any actionable steps to resolve it come January First! Does that sound like you too? Two years ago, I didn’t even make it to midnight! I was so tired, stressed and overwhelmed by a busy holiday and the recent loss of my dad. My mom was in the hospital ICU, and at the same time, I was hosting a Christmas party for 40 people. My weight was at an all-time high from not making time to exercise and cook nutritious food, and every cell in my body hurt. I had had enough and knew I needed to set some serious goals to bring my body and mind back to a state of improved health and wellness.
