Every year at the turn of the year, the good resolutions for the new year appear. Next year I will be sportier. I'll eat healthier next year. Next year I will only buy organic.
Realizing that there is something in your life that you want to change is the first step. We believe that New Year's resolutions don't have that much to do with the goals themselves - New Year's resolutions aren't about losing 5 pounds next year or being able to run 5 kilometers further. New Year's resolutions are more of a kind of self-reflection. You take the time to create a vision of what you want to do, what you want to do, and who you want to be. You become aware of what you are satisfied or dissatisfied with.
But why do so many people feel the need to change something, especially at the beginning of the year? You could decide every day to change your lifestyle, you don't need a fixed date for that. But we like the idea of New Year's resolutions. A new year is like a fresh start. Leave the old year behind and start the new. This is a good time to start thinking about what to do in the new year and what to leave behind in the old one.
We should be happier with who we are. New Year's resolutions don't have to be a disappointment. We don't have to make it our goal to be healthier and expect it to mean going to the gym three times a week. What if our New Year's resolutions next year didn't consist of what we want to change, but what we were happy with last year?
Next year I want to keep doing yoga on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and next year I want to laugh at least as much as this year!
