January 02, 2019


Well here we are, welcoming in yet another New Year. Some of us woke up on January 1st, 2019 with a fresh new perspective, new energy, new goals and new resolutions. While I am down for positivity and goal setting, resolutions simply don't work. They most often lead to failure (especially within the first week), which leads us down a path of negativity and repeating the same cycles from year to year. 

So what if we re-frame resolutions and make them about what we don't want to do? Take stock of the things you DON'T want to do in the New Year and make them tangible. 

Lets run with a few examples here...


New Year Resolution: I will eat healthy 6 out of 7 days a week.

Anti-Resolution: I won't have soft drinks / sugar / alcohol 6 out of 7 days a week. 


New Year Resolution: I will be more efficient with my time. 

Anti-Resolution: I won't mindlessly scroll social media between such and such hours.


New Year Resolution: I will keep my house clean and avoid clutter.

Anti-Resolution: I won't go to bed with a sink full of dirty dishes.


These anti-resolutions have a clear action which make them achievable. Keep your anti-resolutions as applicable as you can, celebrate your achievements and strive to be better today than you were yesterday.
