Are you ready for 2015?
It's that time of year to make your New Year’s resolutions! After overeating and overspending,Christmas is followed by the austerity measure known as New Year’s resolutions.
Most people don’t know where to begin making the change they want in their life they just know that they want to make changes for the better in their life. Hypnosis and New Year's resolutions go hand in hand because a detailed action plan is what is needed for success in keeping your resolutions.
The American Psychological Association cites research which shows that nearly two-thirds of resolution-makers will give up on their goal at the six-month mark. Seeing a hypnotherapist to help you with your plan can be the best way to make sure you are successful with your goals, whether it be losing weight or changing jobs. Number one it has to excite you, there’s no sense in making a new year’s resolution just for the sake of making one. If you can’t pinpoint what excites and motivates you about a daily exercise program or finally organizing your office, then you might have some more self-examination to do.
Most of us think that change is difficult. We know what we want but not knowing how to get there is always the overwhelming reason most people don't follow through with their resolutions.
It's important that people make their healthy resolutions simple, specific and action-oriented, to help keep them on target. Make simple changes to your nutrition plan, such as a goal to eat at least 3 salads
a week or walk every other day for 20 minutes. Make sure it is something that you will do. If you make it too difficult you will give up before you even begin.
An example would be to schedule at least two exercise appointments per week for 2 months. Schedule it on your smart phone or your calendar like you would any other appointment. Taking time for yourself is just as important as any other scheduled event whether it be with the dentist or a lunch date with a colleague. Setting it for 2 months means there's an end-point and you can reassess after that time if this resolution is working for you of if you'd like to change your plan.
If you have clear picture of what you want to achieve, why you want it, and how to get there, keeping a resolution through to the end of the year is a lot easier. Get the support you need to make your goals happen, we all need a little help once in a while. Good Luck and enjoy your new year!
