Let’s make some ‘ridiculously easy’ resolutions this year
Mostly, we make a list of all the ways we’re going to make our lives better.
And mostly, within a few days, weeks or months, the OLD HABITS take hold.
At least thats’s what happens to me. I now have THE SOLUTION!
The KEY to creating NEW HABITS- lay down NEW NEURAL PATHWAYS in your brain.
Make it RIDICULOUSLY EASY and you cannot fail. Trust me on this one.
Say you want to get more active, move more, burn some calories, SMILE MORE, or have more peace in your nursing mind by meditating.
*DO one super easy, super quick move at the same time every day. Like right after you brush your teeth, or while your coffee is brewing. EVERY DAY to create the new habit-pathways.
*THREE push ups- against the wall or against your kitchen counter. Or three squats, stretches, etc. Over time you will WANT TO do more automatically.
The secret is to ONLY do three. Asking yourself to do more may set you up to not do anything.
*FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND, HEART + SOUL. Try this ‘SMILING MIND meditation’ Do it right after you wake up while still in bed,
or at work when you you are ‘losing your mind’ 🙂
The key to success is to set yourself up to WIN with uber easy resolutions. Happy New Year!
