So this year I'm playing along with #12Resolutions on Twitter and Facebook. The idea is to set yourself short-term, achievable goals, one each month.
My resolution for January is to walk 5 times a week.
That's it. Modest and achievable. When I walk the dog, that counts. If I do ten minutes on the treadmill, that counts. If I go for a short walk at lunchtime, that counts.
I can do this - easily.
I've already started.
I already have goals in mind for February and March, but none yet beyond that. I think this is how it's supposed to work. Setting and achieving modest goals kickstarts a change of attitude and new goals will present themselves.
If you would like to join in, use the hashtag #12Resolutions on Twitter, or ask to join Dr Bron's Facebook group 12 Resolutions. We'll all encourage each other!
