I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends and am looking forward to the new adventures and successes that 2018 holds!
If you're anything like me, you've been writing New Years Resolutions every year for as long as you can remember. I thought I'd take the time now to give you some helpful tips and advice on how to approach your resolutions for optimal success.
Tip 1# Keep is Simple
Too often we write an essay on what we need to change about ourselves but this only causes feelings of overwhelm! So if you're writing resolutions or goals its best to keep it simple. You're allowed to have big dreams, in fact, I encourage it! What will really help you fulfill those dreams is to focus on one or two at a time and plan how you can make that vision a reality.
Tip 2# Make your goals visible
New Years resolutions are an out of sight, out of mind thing if you write them in January and by March you've forgotten about them. I suggest you write them out, decorate them in any way that is visually pleasing to you and keep it somewhere in your house or in your phone that keeps you reminded of these goals. Ever since I started pinning my list to the back of my bedroom door, I was more easily motivated and guess what? I completed everything on my list by the time the end of the year rolled round.
Tip 3# Understand that you're goals will change
Sometimes it's hard to accept but your goals will have to change with the eeb an flow of life. Unexpected events will happen and your acceptance of that will make your life easier. Resistance is futile but your happiness is not. Learn to be non-reactive and make the best of any situation. And if life does throw a curve ball, adapt your goals to suit the situation. Who knows, in hindsight it might turn out better than expected!
Tip 4# Pick one habit a month to improve on
It is widely believed that is takes 21 days to change a subconscious habit, so if you've been struggling with an irritating habit such as smoking or nail biting, make January your month of change and commit to breaking the habit. The best way to tackle an issue like this, is of course Tapping. This will speed up the process and allow you to release the resistance of letting go of the habit. By breaking down resolutions into month by month goals, this can help you achieve more and make change easier.
My one last piece of advice is to make self-care a priority. Take some time to get to know the real you and work on the issues that have been holding you back. Self-care can mean different things to different people, but as long as you feel nourished and loved that's all that matters.
I've heard that 2018 is the year of the butterfly and I want you to extend your magnificent wings and fly! If you feel that there is something holding you back from completing, or even starting, your New Years Resolutions, get in touch with me and together we can work on releasing resistance and creating the peace that you deserve.
In the meantime keep tapping, keep loving and see you all soon
Blessings and Gratitude
