This past Sunday as I celebrated Easter with my family, I was a little sad that I didn’t get the opportunity to decorate eggs or watch an Easter egg hunt since I wasn’t around any children. That really got me to thinking about how Easter eggs, bunnies, and chocolate are far fetched from the true meaning of why we celebrate Easter Sunday. In the end, it was refreshing to have this year without all of that in order to take a moment to experience joy and enjoy the time I spent with my family. Plus, I wasn’t tempted to dig into a box of peeps!
It’s easy to lose sight of the important things and get caught up in the busyness of life. I read an article called “Resolutions Revisited” and it revealed a statistic from the Journal of Clinical Psychology stating that after one month, two thirds of the population will have maintained their New Year’s resolutions and after 6 months less than half will have maintained thier vows. They went on to discuss some of the reasons why people don’t accomplish their goals and some strategies of those who are succesful such as:
1. Adhere to a specific plan. The author suggested being strict with your plan.
2. Tell people about your goals. They can keep you accountable and prevent you from stumbling.
3. Set reasonable goals that you know you can accomplish by the end of the year. It also helps to set “mini” goals or benchmarks so that you can feel good about the steps you are taking to reach your ultimate goal.
Another article from the Wall Street Journal,“The Science Behind Failed Resolutions” suggested that focusing on one goal or strategy at a time helps people practice the self-discipline they need to accomplish thier most important goals.
I want to challenge you this week to take a moment and meditate on at least one goal you want to “revive”. Then, write out why it is important to you, what steps you are going to take to accomplish it, who you are going to tell, and what you will do to reward yourself at each mini goal you meet.
Check out what the Acedemy of Nutrition and Dietetics has to say about resolutions as well!
