At some point after a few weeks of downing cookies and pie, you have to slap yourself in the face and realize “WAIT A MINUTE. I’m going to get so fat if I do this forever.”
Christmas isn’t a lifestyle people, It’s a celebration. That’s right. Put the cookie down.
And that’s why I think New Years Resolutions are valuable.
We actually want to press on to more. Challenge ourselves. People who say “I don’t need new years resolutions to do better.” well whoop de doo for you.
If you don’t reflect on your life during New Years because you think it’s too cliche, you should find time at some point during the year to reflect and refocus.
Do I actually want to be where I am? How do I move? What are my actual obstacles? What excuses am I pretending are obstacles?
I think we should all take New Years to reflect on the direction of our lives, whether your goal is to lose 20lbs this year or not, at least stop and reflect on where you are and where you want to be.
