#015 | New Year, Same You?Jan 14, 2023
New Year, Same You? If you’ve already broken your New Year’s resolution, don’t despair. It’s the second week of the new year. Let’s be in the moment. How many of us resolved to be more present in 2023? How many of us have broken that resolution? Depending on which study you read, somewhere between everyone and everyone will have broken their New Year’s resolutions by February 14.
How can we make this year different?
Resolve to always be resolving. I know, that sounds weird, but it’s actually sort of liberating. January might be, for you, a terrible time to begin eradicating your bad habits. Depending on where you live, the days may be shorter, darker and colder (which is the case for me in Canada) — precisely the worst conditions for engaging new habits.
You don’t need a specific day of the year to start to change your life. You can resolve to do something anytime. And you can decide to do these things for an hour, a day, a week. Then see if you want to continue for a longer period of time. Vowing to overhaul your life on Jan. 1 and trying to stick with the changes forever is a high demand.
When you do make a resolution, be it now or in six weeks or in July (or never — you’re perfect the way you are), remember that it doesn't need not be punishing. You can decide to reward yourself more. And the resolution doesn’t need to be big. It can be small or boring but only meaningful to you.
