7 STEPS TO MEANINGFUL, MAGNETIC NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

By Michelle May, M.D. Your New Years Resolutions should be like powerful magnets that draw you toward them. The following seven steps will help you create inspiring goals and a blueprint for reaching them. 1. Create Space. Invest time this week to think about your present life and set goals that will bring you greater health, happiness and fulfillment. As part of your resolution-making process, decide how you will carve out space daily to accomplish your goals. Most of us can easily find the time in the wasted minutes we spend on unproductive activities like watching TV or surfing the internet. Some of us will need to get up a few minutes earlier or say no to joining another committee. 2. Consider Your Values. What is truly important to you—family, health, career, achievement, contribution, spiritual growth? When you are clear on what really matters, you’ll willingly invest your valuable time and energy pursuing meaningful goals that are congruent with your principles and values. 3. Be Inspired. Your goals should act like a magnet that draws you toward them. (Hint: If you are repelled by the thought of working toward a particular resolution, start over with a new goal that excites and challenges you.) Go for the shiver-factor: If the thought of achieving your goal gives you a little shiver of excitement, you’re on the right track. 4. Predict Your Future. Close your eyes and project yourself into the future. Imagine what it’s like as you achieve your goal. Picture how you feel, think, look, and act—as though it’s happening this very moment. Create a vivid, exciting image of yourself living it out then return to this vision frequently to maintain the pull your goal has on you. 5. Set Mini-Goals. A magnet cannot attract an object that’s too far away to feel its pull. Goals that feel too far from where you are now quickly lose their attraction. Therefore, create achievable mini-goals that are within reach but challenging enough to pull you forward toward your larger goals. 6. Give your brain a map to follow. Write your goals and mini-goals in positive, present terms using detailed words and/or pictures. For example, instead of “I won’t eat sweets anymore,” try “I enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables at each meal to support my energy, health and ideal weight.” Put your goals in a place where you will see them often—you’ll be amazed at how these concrete words or images begin to manifest themselves in your life. 7. Be flexible and creative. Use your map to chart your course but be open to new paths to your goals. Obstacles and detours are a natural part of change and provide important learning opportunities. When you are patient and gentle with yourself, you’ll discover creative solutions that help you grow beyond anything you could have imagined. As you become more clear about your goals and mindful in the process, you’ll see that you are not only drawn toward your goals but your goals are drawn toward you In Health, Enjoy! Michelle May, M.D. P.S. The goal that inspires me the most is spreading the word about mindful eating and non-diet weight management. I would love to speak at your conference, event or retreat!
