So many of already have our New Year’s Resolutions teed up. We know just the changes we are going to make…. Soon. But not now. We’re not ready yet.
First we have to get through the holidays.
But what if the holidays could be a lot more fun if you stopped waiting, and started achieving your goals right now?
For so many folks, myself included, the hardest part is not making the changes… it’s just DECIDING to make the changes.
For example, many families fear that starting sleep training means embarking on a long period of relentless crying.
And they are relieved to find that many times, positive change can start with just changing the schedule. Moving bedtime earlier, or switching to a clock-based-schedule from an awake-based-nap schedule. Or starting a gentle, gradual night wean that results in nothing more than a few squawks.
If you want to eat healthier, maybe you decide to just have one serving of dessert instead of three at the family gathering. That can hardly be described as suffering. The truth is, you'll feel really good about getting to enjoy that treat and not waking up with guilt and stomach upset the next morning.
It’s so easy to engage in all-or-nothing thinking but the truth is, even small changes can lead to big results. And small wins can make it a lot easier to face the bigger challenges later on.
Don’t you deserve to feel victorious already when you ring in the new year?
