Happy New Year!
I have made the same resolutions for the past few years. They are basically to eat less sugar, watch less tv, spend less money and to be more present (worry less). Most of these are very negative; taking away and focusing on things I don't like about myself. This year I'd like to be more positive and instead of focusing of what I want to stop or reduce, I will look at what I want to increase that will in turn reduce those behaviors I do want to lessen. For example, instead of stop watching so much tv, I will read more. That sounds better doesn't it? I'm focusing on what will be added to my life rather than taken away.
So for 2017 I will focus on:
1. Reading and learning more
2. Eating more fruits and vegetables
3. Saving more money
4. Appreciating every moment
Anyone with me for this more positive approach? Focusing on the positive result of any change is a great motivator to create a new habit to stick to a goal or resolution. It's also a way to cultivate gratitude, which increases happiness, and who doesn't want to be happier!?
