New Year's resolutions are over rated, aren't they?
Made to be broken. But maybe because we set the bar way too high, as a result of visions of where we think we should be.
"Should" is a word laden with high expectations and a good dose of shame. No surprise, then, that we fall short of our lofty goals.
Few resolutions are more popular than the resolve to loose weight.
We create a grand plan, but we seriously underestimate how the bombardment of stimulation in our day-to day lives continually pulls us off course.
But it doesn't have to be so hard. Small shifts in behavior can produce huge results.
During this busy holiday season, start integrating those small changes by just drinking more water and eating an apple a day. Along with that, take the time to savor what this practice means for your body.
Taking time to notice and be aware of the nurturing you are providing yourself is a great way to punctuate your day. Little by little, you'll notice that those small changes are making a noticeable difference in the way you feel.
Give it a try. Passage into the coming year just might be a while lot smoother.
