New Years’ Resolutions?
Do you make New Years’ Resolutions?
I don’t. I don’t know why – I could certainly use some improvement in many areas. But for some reason it seems very daunting to me. How to live up to those stated expectations when I haven’t been able to do it so far in my life?
I was listening to a discussion on NPR yesterday while riding in my car, and I found it interesting. This link will take you there, and it’s about 45 minutes long, so good for travel or exercise time. The guest, a psychologist named Jeremy Dean, makes good suggestions about how to break old habits and create new ones, including,
- importance of making specific goals as well as
- the importance of understanding why we cling to old habits
I guess it’s too late to make a real New Year’s Resolution for 2013, but it’s never too late to try to create better habits.
