2. Resolutions

by Elma January. 03, 2017 255 views

The closest thing I have to a resolution is completing this 31 days of yoga series on youtube. I'm sure I believed in new year's resolutions at some point earlier in my life, but then I came across studies explaining why they fail so often and now I am more apt to take things one day at a time instead of planning my entire year ahead. I enjoy January 1st, because it symbolizes a new beginning and hope which people hold on to as they attempt to better themselves. 


I find human nature inspiring in the sense that most people actually do want to improve. The problem is that most resolutions, especially those pertaining to health and fitness, are long forgotten by March because they are done in an unattainable or unforgiving way. I think people need to be kinder and gentler to themselves. This yoga series is a really great way to kick off the year, at least for me personally, because it tends to anxieties and feels revitalizing and healing in a mindful way where you pace yourself to meet goals that are both physical and mental in nature.

Creating lasting Habits really is a science that takes a lot of work. You should read the book called "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business" by Charles Duhigg. One of the best books I have read.

Best of luck to you, Elma.
