The time has come again to set our New Years Resolution, every year thousands of us start the year with a clear intention to adhere to them. It be to lose weight, give up smoking, exercise more the list is endless; only for us to wander why year after year we make the same one and year in and year out we seem to fail.
Some people get round this by saying their resolution is to not make a any. Others choose to change theirs to an aim; therefore forgoing resolution title.
So if we cross out the
resolution and make our 2016 aim list instead, will we be able to achieve them?
The intention of a resolution can imply that we have to give up something we enjoy. Weather it be smoking, giving up on the food we love or make drastic changes over night. The objective of an aim list is to list the things you would like to achieve and work out small achievable steps for them to be reached.
To give up smoking becomes: I aim to get healthy, to do this I could stop smoking, I can do this by speaking to my doctor, hypnotherapy, patches/gum etc.
To lose weight becomes: I aim to get healthy, to do this I could to lose some weight. I can do this by speaking to my doctor, hypnotherapy
, Joining a support work.
Exercise more becomes: I aim to get healthy, to do this I could exercise more. I can do this by speaking to my doctor, joining a gym/club, buy a Beachbody Program.
To write a book becomes: I aim to write a book, to do this I could take a creative writing course. I can do this by contacting colleges.
To make positive change becomes: This year I want to make a positive change in my life. To do this I could find a counsellor to help me work through everything. I can speak to my doctor or contact a local Private Counsellor.
It comes down to what works for you if resolution helps you achieve fab! If you end up beating yourself up year after year because you have be unable to keep your resolution; then try an aims list for 2016.
