The New Year brings with it a natural desire for change.
Remember that the point is not to set unrealistic goals, but to make lasting, positive changes that will bring about more ease and balance into your life.
This year, take a moment to reflect on your resolutions. Are you setting goals? Or are you setting intentions? Goals focus on a future outcome, while setting an intention is a "path or practice that is focused on how you are 'being' in the present moment." You can bring integrity and unity into your present life with grounded intention.
Concentrating on what you want, instead of what you don't want, can make all the difference when it comes to keeping your focus.Studies show a little self-compassion will help you stick to your goals and create lasting, positive change.
Happy New Year
