Reframing the Resolution From Gimmicks to Growth Mindset

We should not see resolutions as unchanging lists of goals. Instead, they can be viewed as a framework of intentional development. It is crucial to shift our attention from the outcome itself towards the process. Instead of chasing a chiseled body, concentrate on establishing healthy habits such as regular exercising and mindful eating. Set a strict practice schedule and celebrate your small victories throughout the process.
