Resolutions, change

Rent a New Year’s resolution rather than buying one. Make your change for one week. Then re-up as you go along. One thing – you can’t just move out on your resolution – you have to give one week’s notice. Try this and see if you don’t just end up deciding to make things permanent.

  1. This is the best approach to New Year’s resolutions I’ve ever seen. I’ve never managed to stick to mine, so I stopped trying… This one has some fine print, but within reason, and gives so many chances to gradually change habits. Brilliant, thank you so much!

    • Thank you. I had set many goals for myself over the years (such as losing weight) but was overwhelmed. But when I had the idea to take it a little at a time things changed. It seemed as if allowing myself an out made me want to keep trying, especially since it was just for a little while…I now say to myself much more often – just make a little try…I teach swimming and it’s what I tell my students – just get to the end of the pool. Don’t think about swimming a mile, just go to the end of the pool!

      Happy 2014! And thank you so much for all your support this year for my efforts!
