“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” ~Nelson Mandela
It’s a New Year! Time for celebrating and reflecting on the past, as well as looking forward to what the future may hold. Which, if you’re like me, can leave you quite overwhelmed in the present! New Year’s goals and resolutions bring out the best in so many people – we’re motivated and ready to tackle any challenge. But I know I can only stay motivated for so long. Setting huge goals just doesn’t work for me. I’m looking to get practical this year.
I heard a story once about making changes, two degrees at a time. If you feel miles from where you want to be, make a two degree change. Keep making them step by step, you’ll end up where you want to be.
This system of change can be applied to almost any resolution. Say you’d like to lose weight, or monitor portion control this year. My first step would be to admit that I can’t rely solely on willpower (mine wanes). Then I’d find something convenient and practical to help me. For example, a cereal scoop by Healthy Steps. I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What could be more convenient than keeping a scoop in the cereal box to help control my portions? Or a salad dressing lid to deliver the right serving for me – there’s something I wouldn’t have a clue as to how much a portion would be! In fact, the whole line of Healthy Steps products are designed to help prepare healthy, properly portioned foods at home or work, in a quick and easy way. A few of their more popular items include a healthy portion pasta basket and nut bowl, Juicer Pro and Total Tea Infuser. They’re actually quite affordable, and on sale now at LuckyVitamin.com as part of their limited time New Year’s Resolution sale.
What about you? What resolutions do you have, and how can you achieve them, step by step?
