It's Therapeutic Thursday at Aortic Hope.
🎉Today is about Resolutions and how to make them actually work for you.
🤔Every year, millions of people make resolutions to improve their lives, but only a few of them actually stick to them. Why is that? Well, there are many reasons, but one of them is that resolutions are often too vague, unrealistic, or boring. So how can you make resolutions that work for you? Here are some tips:
- 𝗕𝗲 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰.Instead of saying "I want to lose weight", say "I want to lose 10 pounds by March".
- 𝗕𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰.. Don't set goals that are impossible to achieve, or that will make you miserable. Instead of saying "I will never eat chocolate again", say "I will limit myself to one piece of chocolate per week".
- 𝗕𝗲 𝗳𝘂𝗻. Choose resolutions that are enjoyable, or that have a reward at the end. Instead of saying "I will exercise more", say "I will join a dance class" or "I will go on a hiking trip".
There is no reason to create stress while trying to achieve a goal. 😊
