I’m a few days late with this topic but I figure as long as it’s January we’re still in the clear. After all, as long as you get started in January, it still counts as a New Year’s resolution, right?
I’ve always been a fan of resolutions, despite the fact that my track record isn’t stellar in this realm. I make them at the start of the year, and then usually again around my birthday, and then at the beginning of random months at times. There’s something about a clean slate that really appeals to my personal development-obsessed side. While others groan about the cliched-ness of it all and repeat that you can get started on a goal on any old day, I don’t see any harm in embracing the growth atmosphere that is inevitably in the air at this time of year.
With that said, motivation is always highest when a new idea strikes. It wanes over time and one day you’ll find that you really don’t see the point in putting in the effort anymore. So you skip days and then weeks and eventually you don’t remember the resolution at all. By the start of the next year, you might even forget to the point where you make the same resolution without realizing it at all (I know I’ve done this before).
This is the year that I vow to follow through on my resolution to really commit to and form a regular yoga practice. Here’s how I plan on making it happen.
