Fox 59 New Year Resolution 2019

When the clock strikes midnight and confetti falls, a familiar voice echoes throughout the air, “New Year’s Resolutions.” As the calendar flips into 2024, the enticement of fresh beginnings and self-improvement is evident. The rush to join gyms or detox programs is a great time to think about our resolutions. Are they just a bunch of empty promises that are bound to fade away? Or can these goals become meaningful blueprints to help us grow and improvement?

Unpacking the Resolution Paradox: Why do They Often FAIL?

The numbers paint a grim picture. Studies have shown that as high as 80percent of people give up in the first couple of months. Why? We can be seduced into declaring grandiose statements and rushing fixes. We rebuke unproductive habits, and set overly ambitious goals that lack specificity or a plan to implement. Failure breeds frustration, which causes discouragement and then sends us back to the old routines.

Reframing Your Resolution Removing Gimmicks and Growth Mindset

Resolutions should not be viewed as a list of stifling objectives. Instead we should view them as a way to create a framework for an intentional process of growth. The key lies in shifting our focus from the final result to the process. Focus on healthy lifestyles like daily exercise and mindful eating instead of trying to achieve an aesthetically pleasing body. Make sure you stick to a regular routine and be grateful for your small wins as you progress.

Beyond the Individual: Resolutions Using ripple-effects

It’s not just our personal lives that are impacted by resolutions. We can use this moment to create positive ripples that radiate outward. Think about volunteering in your local community, or donating to a cause you care about or simply making a commitment to act of compassion and kindness throughout your day-to-day interactions. Every little thing you do can impact your surroundings.
