Resolutions vs. Healthy Lifestyle Changes


Well, it's been almost one month since the New Year rang in, and exactly one month since some have lost their motivation to maintain their New Year resolutions. In my previous blog, I discussed how to set SMART goals, however, the process can be difficult until you get the hang of it. One friend told me she is no longer excited about her goals and another told me she'd like to make long term changes rather than change for just a few months.

This year, why not make a commitment to being realistic with your abilities. Set goals that will allow you to see the residual effects long after the "hype" of the New Year has worn off. Thanks to my hair stylist, I've decided to focus more on what I speak out and attract to myself to assist me in reaching my goals for this year. I've been listening to The Secret and it has been really helpful.

One way to achieve a lifestyle change is to be willing to adjust and modify your goals to fit you and what is going on in your life. Don't be afraid to assess and make necessary changes as your circumstances change.

Remember, you are in control of your destiny and your vision (goals) can be your reality/life. Don't forget to leave your comments and let us know how you are making lifestyle changes.
