New year resolutions are a funny thing. They’re usually abstract goals with no real objectives attached to them and thus, they rarely stick.
I think we should call them new year habits instead. Because this is what we’re really after, right? To rid ourselves of old habits that no longer serve us and form new, better and healthier habits in their place.
We’re creatures of habit. Whether we want to go to the gym more, eat healthier, or spend more time with friends, if we want the change to be long lasting, it needs to become a habit.
Research says it only takes two weeks to form a habit. So if we do something every day for two weeks, it’ll likely become a routine part of our life.
This is my hope for you, for everyone, and for myself. That we form new habits. Habits that will serve to further our goals for the year ahead.
Happy New Year!
