How to Make Your Resolutions Permanent
At the beginning of ever year statistically nearly 50% of all Americans make New Years Resolutions. Some of the resolutions that make the top ten list every year are losing weight, staying fit and healthy, and enjoying life to the fullest. Maintaining integrity towards reaching these goals tends to fade as the weeks and months pass into the new year. How does one stay on track with their goals? James Clear an entrepreneur, writer, and weight lifter who thinks a lot about goals, habits, and success, has a much better approach to achieving almost any goal--and it's an approach anyone can use. The idea is changing your perspective and focusing on the process not the goal.
Goals reduce your current happiness. When you're working toward a goal, you're essentially saying, "I'm not good enough yet... but I will be when I reach my goal." The problem with this mindset is that you're teaching yourself to always put off happiness and success until the next milestone is achieved. "Once I reach my goal, I'll be happy. Once I achieve my goal, I'll be successful."
Solution: Commit to a process, not a goal. Choosing a goal puts a huge burden on your shoulders. Can you imagine if you had made it your goal to write two books this year? One would become stressed even thinking about writing a word! We do this to ourselves all the time. We put unnecessary stress on ourselves to lose weight or to succeed in business or to write a best-selling novel. Instead, keep things simple and reduce stress by focusing on the daily process and sticking to your schedule instead of worrying about big, life-changing goals. When you focus on the practice instead of the performance, you can enjoy the present moment and improve at the same time.
At Sana Vita Studio, we share the belief that it is imperative to focus on the practice and we want to help you achieve your goal of improved health and enjoying life to the fullest. Sana Vita Studio's mission is to help you improve your relationship with your body through Yoga, Pilates and Yamuna Body Rolling training by giving you a powerful long term plan to optimize your health and fitness.
