What a year it's been! We have all experienced up and downs and high and lows throughout this rather unusual year. It's been a year of staying at home, finding out whether or not you like to bake, zoom calls, cutting your own bangs and more.
But it is time to look ahead to the new year and leave 2020 in the dust. What are your goals for the year? Do you have any New Year's resolutions? Many people do not believe in making them, whereas others feel the new year is a perfect time for a fresh start.
Here are some of the most common New Year's resolutions:
1. Lose weight
2. Get healthy/eat healthier, take better care of yourself
3. Give up a bad habit/smoking, drinking, negative people in your life
4. Get out of debt, be more financially responsible
5. Give back/do something for others; do something that makes a difference
Are any of these on your list this year? If so, you should check out Stresscenter's program: The Solution.
In our shorter 5 day program, The Solution, we have created a total plan for a New You for the New Year that covers all these resolutions, and more. But due to limited time and space here, I am going to choose one topic that I believe is “core” to following through on any desire to change and improve yourself or your life.
Before you can change you must understand why you keep doing things the way you’ve always done them, and getting undesirable results. This is related to (ironically) your “Core Story” experience. Your core story experience defines you and your belief system which will affect who you are, what decisions you make, the confidence you have, even the type of person you date or marry. I ask you to go through a core story evaluation. This helps you define your core story experience and will show you how to turn it into something positive and “use it” in your favor.
For example, maybe you grew up in a family where health and nutrition weren’t important, so now you make bad diet and exercise choices so you are overweight and unhealthy. You can blame your bad health on your family experience or, you can use your past to motivate you to eat healthy, exercise, and break that chain of bad behavior, so you don’t pass it on to your own children.
When you understand your core story, you will understand that much of your reactions, responses, and attitudes to difficult situations are “re-active” as a result of your core story.
