Taken from Mindful, Healthy Mind, Health Life, here are a few tips to spark your resolutions with passion, not pressure.
Recognize a yearning for change
You are the one who already has what you need to start making changes in your life. Only you can make it happen.
Engage all your resources
Learn to tune into your body, thoughts, and become friendly with your emotions. This helps develop our inner resources that we can use to create a feeling of stability.
Impatience can be a tremendous drain on your motivations. Learn as you go. Adopt a relaxed pace to explore and learn what you are experiencing.
Open up to what matters to you
Let yourself feel why this is worth the effort. Recall that you chose this route because you were determined to grow your resolve. Return to this initial inspiration whenever you need a boost of motivation.
Learn to make allies of your obstacles
Sometimes the greatest obstacle is the fear of change itself. Awareness will feed our resolve.
Value your efforts
All will serve to strengthen your ability to trust yourself and your ability to stand up for what you want.
Enjoy the journey
Learn to adapt your route as your resolve propels you forward. The curve balls and surprises are what make life such a titillating adventure.
