Do You Want a New Year's Resolution Or A Lifetime Revolution?




My Personal Journey from Failed Resolutions to Daily Revolution

As a wellbeing coach who has navigated the same path, I understand the allure and subsequent disappointment of New Year's resolutions. I, too, used to set resolutions at the start of each year, only to find my motivation dwindling within weeks. I let my weight increase, my overwhelm and stress take over and I wasn't living my best life just after a couple of weeks. Why?


My goals weren’t specific or achievable, and I wasn’t truly connected to the motivation required to see them through. I had an awakening after a recurrence of my breast cancer in 2020. This woke me up to the reality that if I don't take care of myself better, I may not be here much longer. This experience led me to a significant realization and a change in approach. Now, I treat every day as New Year's Day, focusing on a lifetime revolution rather than a fleeting New Year's resolution. My hope is that this blog serves as your wake-up call, sparing you from the kind of critical health challenges that I experienced.


Why 91% of New Year's Resolutions Don't Last

  1. Lack of Specificity and Achievability: Often, resolutions are broad and not grounded in reality, making them hard to stick to.

  2. Disconnection from True Motivation: Without understanding the 'why' behind our goals, sustaining the effort becomes a challenge.

  3. The 'New Year' Illusion: Waiting for a specific date to start making changes can be limiting. Why wait for January 1st when every day presents an opportunity for growth?


what is a revolution?


On a personal level, a revolution can mean a major change in someone's way of thinking, living, or viewing the world. This can refer to a transformative period in an individual's life, marked by significant changes in habits, beliefs, or lifestyle. Revolution is used to describe significant life changes or shifts in personal philosophy. This can be in response to major life events, new insights, or a deep desire for change.



Steps to Making Healthy Habits Stick


1. Set Clear, Achievable Goals Define specific, realistic goals to create a sense of direction and purpose.

2. Connect with Your Motivation Understand the deeper reasons behind your goals to maintain motivation.

3. Treat Every Day as an Opportunity Adopt the mindset that every day is a chance to improve and grow, rather than waiting for a new year.

4. Focus on Consistent Actions Build habits through small, consistent actions, reinforcing your commitment to your goals.

5. Celebrate Progress, Not Just Perfection Acknowledge each step forward, no matter how small, to build momentum and confidence.
