Sticking to Your Resolutions

It’s February and I’m making resolutions. I’m an acupuncturist, so I could say that I’m working on the Chinese calendar. But the truth is that any time inspiration strikes is the time to make resolutions or declarations.

There is a reason that I’m letting everyone know about mine. I’ll explain why in a minute. Here they are:

  1. At least five minutes of meditation a day. Om.
  2. Daily yoga asana practice. Practicing most days is not at all like practicing every day.
  3. Yoga teacher training! I am committing to the upcoming Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Garden starting in September.

It is my hope that you will begin and/or continue to set new stretchy goals for yourself in your health and in every other domain. And once you have resolved yourself to a new goal or action, I hope you tell everyone who will listen. Have your support network work for you to help keep on track. By being accountable to someone outside of yourself you will be much more likely to follow through.

I am sharing my particular resolutions not because my resolutions are so important that you should know about them. I’m sharing because I hope that it will inspire or encourage you to do the same.

Sometimes people stick to their resolutions and sometimes they don’t. What new stretchy resolutions and goals are you taking on in your life? I’d love to hear about them, so please let me know by leaving a comment!
