With the new year is upon us we all like to think ahead and get excited about planning what's next. Like taking a trip or maybe you're getting married. There are always big life events that make each year an event in and of itself. But what about the little things?! Like those goals that keep coming back every year and keep reminding us that we need to make this one particular change.
Every year, 81% of New Year's resolutions fail. How sad is that?!?
I mean come on, we are all adults here (or I'd like to think we are). We can do this! We can put away the cookies and fit in a work out today. And most f-ing days for that matter. If it means enough to you, you'll make time for it. You know this to be so true so don't lie to yourself anymore!
Trust me that I am not where I thought I'd be going into 2017. I am in a better place but there are changes that I really want to stick this time around. I began looking in all of the areas of my life where I have not been succeeding. Why am I not leading the life that I want? I should be the epitome of wellness but I continue to let myself down. I have decided to take more responsibility for my overall well-being in this coming year. I am the only one who can make myself truly happy. But hey, I am not one to get offended if my friend slaps a cookie out of my hand because I'd do the same to her! Spend time with friends and loved ones that will be supportive of what you need.
Trust yourself that you can make these changes once and for all!!!!
Here are 5 ways to reach your goals this coming year:
1) Think about what it is you truly want
Sit down with a pen and paper and consider what matters most to you present day. Set your intentions with the New Moon before the end of 2016. As the moon becomes full, your power of commitment grows as well.
2) Give yourself time
Stop thinking of a whole calendar year as the timeline for your goals. When you think of each task you've completed in your life, it didn't all happen within 365 days. Give yourself appropriate time frames. I suggest starting with monthly goals. It takes 21 days to change a habit so 30 days is enough time to commit to any change.
*Consider doing Whole30 with me!!! =)
3) Be confident!
Believe in yourself first of all! Be honest about your limitations and be open to the unexpected. Things are never what they seem at first. You will most likely surprise yourself in the end! ;)
4) See it!
Make a vision board! Put together ideas and things you see happening for yourself. Look at it everyday. See mine on instagram. It changes from time to time but it's a constant reminder that I believe in my work and the love I have for my life.
5) Manifest it!
Write it all down. Re-write it and read it when you feel like inspiring yourself. Remember why you wanted this thing so badly in the first place.
With love and health,
