Resolutions should not be viewed as unchanging lists of goals. Instead, they should be viewed as a framework for intentional development. It is important to turn our attention away from the end result and focus on the process. Make sure to develop healthy habits like mindful eating and daily exercising, rather than seeking out a body that looks attractive. Set a strict exercise routine and celebrate the small victories along the way.
