The statistics are bleak: only 8% of people who make New Year’s resolutions stick to them, and those who don’t usually abandon them after just one week.
So what can we do to overcome this? Try this RAP process below:
One of my personal examples is that last year I set a resolution that I wanted to floss every day. Using a mixture of ‘towards pleasure’ images and ‘away from pain’ images in my mind, I have achieved my goal every single day. Yay!! It works!
And another tip is to take this ‘towards and away from’ motivation strategy, and insert it into a procedure you are already doing. So to follow through my example from earlier, my floss is kept with my toothpaste, so I see it every time I go to brush my teeth.
So, how does this link to yoga? Well, the Yoga flyer below is for you to print, if you would like to, and put somewhere prominent so that you are often reminded that a new class is starting in January.
Maybe you have always wondered what yoga is like and you fancy creating a new habit?
Or maybe you would like to build on your existing practice ? – either way, it would be lovely to see you in January.
My New Year’s resolution for this year is to be more mindful at least once a day, whether just to appreciate nature more, or the food on my plate, my health, feeling happy, a kind gesture or word, or even smaller things that I may not have even noticed before. What’s yours?
