So here we are at 5th January in our brand spanking new year of 2016. For many people this is the time for resolutions, for new beginnings and fresh starts. Of course, anything new brings with it a challenge. How many of us don’t even try because we are sitting nicely in our comfort zone? Even to voice that we would like to change something seems an uneasy risk to take because it flags up the possibility of us not being successful at something. It raises a little stress response to even think that we might commit to trying something new. Try looking at your resolution and breaking it down into small manageable pieces. Give yourself positive feedback; credit for each small success. Don’t berate yourself when your resolve wavers; try to accept that it is a small hiccup and that things will get back on track tomorrow. The New Year resolution is for the year – try not to expect it to happen within the first week.
HOPING THAT YOU ALL HAVE A HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2016 ~ Sue
