Resolutions. So many of us make them, break them and then throw in the towel till next year rolls around. For many it’s a disheartening ritual. Frankly, I think the idea of resolutions is somewhat outdated. Instead of making big, hard, doomed-to-fail resolutions, let’s break ‘em down, call them “life tweaks,” and commence making a few little adjustments every day. Look at what’s not working or dragging your body or spirit down and then start the break up process, like ending a bad relationship. If going cold turkey works better for you, then by all means do so. No matter how you go about it, the idea is to start letting go of stuff that undermines your body or soul.
