How have you done on your New years resolutions for 2014?
Are you making any for 2015?
Why wait for January?
We are entering into an unusual time of the year. December and everything associated with Christmas is a time that is a little outside the normal way of things. There are more parties, more food and drink, more time with families, more opportunities to have time away from work. All of these things can either help, or get in the way of, all of the resolutions detailed above.
The choice is yours.
The thing to remember is that when you made this resolution, or when you have been thinking about starting it in January, you have made the decision that this is something you want to achieve – something you want in your life.
If you’re thinking about the idea that December is your last blow out before you start your change, I would question your commitment to changing.
If you really want to lose weight, why spend December putting on more weight to lose in January?
If you really want to give up smoking why spend December risking your health for another month?
If you really want to quit drinking, why spend December with a hangover and an abused liver?
If you really want to get out of debt why spend December getting yourself into a worse position?
If you really want to get fit. why spend December sitting on the sofa eating mince pies and making it harder to start in January?
January is a bit depressing. All the parties are over, all the presents are unwrapped, the weather is rubbish and there’s nothing to look forward to for ages….so why would you want to make a change in your life at a time when you are already struggling? Do it at a good time – like NOW!
There is also the pressure of everyone starting their new years resolutions in January. How great would you feel when people are going on about how much weight they have to lose, and how much they put on over Christmas, if you could say that you had already lost half a stone and were feeling amazing?
If you have struggled to make the changes you wanted to this year, maybe it’s time to think about getting professional help. It’s OK to want a helping hand to make a change in your life. The important thing is that you make the changes you want to so that you can be as happy and fulfilled as possible. I think Hypnosis is a great way of getting that support, but there are lots of people ready and waiting to help you – slimming groups, personal trainers, volunteer groups, debt counsellors, life coaches etc etc, so don’t think you have to do it all on your own.
What ever you want to achieve to make your life better, think about what’s stopping you.
Don’t give up what you really want for something you just want now.
