This week Fandango, for FPQ # 150 asks us;
Do you plan on making any New Year’s resolutions this year. If so, can you share a few of them with us? If not, why not?
I think I have asked a similar question on my Sunday Poser last year.
In this post I explained why I don’t make any new year’s resolutions and what I do instead.
For me, making New Year’s resolutions seems like an exercise in futility. Never have I stuck to these resolutions for more than a few weeks. So why do something you know is going to fail? Besides, at my age there aren’t any goals that I feel I will be able to meet by these resolutions!
The only reason I will take prompt action to make a change in my lifestyle would be a warning from my doctor. He/she may frighten me enough to give up carbs altogether or reduce my weight drastically because I may fall seriously ill.
My modus operandi is to have short term goals. Like walk 10,000 steps a day for a month so that it becomes a habit. Or go to bed at 10;00 pm to keep my sleep app happy. Simple, achievable targets that I can do easily. And if I don’t, I am not downcast or disheartened.
This is what I do. What is the way you approach new year’s resolutions?
