This time of year all the talk is about resolutions. An opportunity for new horizons, wiping the slate clean with a fresh start. The start of a new decade reinforces this notion.
It’s easy to get carried out with setting resolutions that don’t necessarily reflect our true self. An underlying pressure from society to make major life changes that may not necessarily be what we want.
My new blog for prominent U.S. yoga teacher trainer and published author, Rachel Scott reflects upon this. Using my own experiences in setting resolutions on what’s worked and not in forming a habit.
Rachel inspired me to write, as she has committed to live her life by a set of values, honing in on the small stuff that had the potential to make the most difference. Rachel is setting weekly ‘micro-resolutions’ such as to chew her food for longer, drink more water, avoid single use plastics or aim for eight hours sleep.
I love the idea of setting micro-resolutions that better reflect who we are and what we stand for at a given time. Adopting this philosophy increases the likelihood that a micro-resolution sticks, excited by where this may lead in changing our lives for the better.
