Here we are into the first weeks of the New Year and I find myself wondering how many resolutions have already gone to the wayside. I tend not to make too many resolutions anymore but we all have the perennial wants and needs. Losing weight, exercising more, eating right, you know, the ones that usually fall short.
I was reading a book called, "Resolutions That Stick! 12 Habits That Can Transform Your New Year" by S.J. Scott and the author takes a very practical approach to making change that lasts.
Scott says there are reasons why resolutions don’t stick,
Explanation #1: Too Many Changes All at Once. If you want to establish a new habit, you must focus on it until it has become a permanent part of your daily routine. Once that new habit feels normal and natural, you can move on to changing another one. And then another one after that”.
This makes sense to me, change that becomes habit naturally slips into your life. So what one thing are you going to work on until it becomes habit? Could be reading more this year. Stop in and say hello, we'll help you find a book. Happy New Year!
