‘Tis the season. This is the time of year when we feel the pull, even the pressure, to set New Year’s Resolutions. Everyone else around us is talking about theirs.
Can we all agree that any 2011 New Year’s Resolutions about weight loss were a waste of time and only lead to more desperation?
This year, would you be willing to experiment with an alternative?
What about going deeper; instead of focusing on weight loss and the fanatasy that it will solve every single problem you’ve ever had, consider exploring and getting clear about your true desires and intentions for your emotional health, your physical health, your nutritional health, and your spiritual health this coming year?
If you could focus on those, instead of on weight loss, if you chose to practice healthier behaviors, just one sustainable small step at a time, could you just trust that to whatever degree your weight might change, it will or won’t happen naturally?
If you could stop obsessing about your weight, what could you dream about…and accomplish, instead?
