The mark of a new year a reflective time to remember what worked and what we would like to change. We start the year with resolutions and promises to ourselves that we will make these changes.
I am a big believer in not buying into the idea of having big resolutions and instead I focus on transformation for new year. I kick off the year with cleaning spree and I take a hard look in the mirror to see what’s working and what’s not. Sometimes that means changing my style – from skin care to wardrobe to hairstyle. The new year, new you can extends beyond these outward appearance changes and also be an internal reflection on what existential changes we want to make in our lives.
Whether you set goals, resolve to make changes or focus on transformations the key is for these to be realistic and achievable for the year ahead. So that at the end of the year when we sit down and reflect upon our transformed selves we can see the progress we’ve already made and feel confident moving into the next year.
