Drop the New Year’s Resolution and Create Lasting Habits
By Heidi Dix, Mindful Motions
How many times have you set a goal with the sincere intention to follow through, only to have it fall by the wayside within a couple of weeks, days, or even hours? We’ve all been there and we’ve all done it. We all start on a path toward our goals pumped to get there, but sometimes, motivation slips, we make excuses, and we lose focus. Far too quickly, this “honeymoon effect” of creating change seems to wear off and we’re left feeling disappointed and back to where we started.
Unfortunately most change efforts don’t last. And the reason they don’t, is because of our habits.
As human beings, we are creatures of habit. We tend to do the same things over and over; we like to be in our comfort zones, avoiding the uncertainty that comes with change. We actually avoid change whether we want to or not. Avoiding change is a reflex that is built into the security system of ou biological self and our unconscious minds. It’s a habit.
From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, you have two forces struggling to take charge of your life. The two forces are your conscious mind and your unconscious mind. Our conscious mind wants to get better. Our unconscious mind wants us to stay same.Even as you are all eager and dedicated to getting rid of old and undesirable habits, you will need to understand how to deal with the mind’s natural tendencies to resist change. You will need to enlist the support of your whole mind if you are going to avoid the “subtle sabotage” that sinks the vast majority of attempts at habit change. The surest way to create lasting habits is to improve the relationship with your mind and learn how to enlist both minds to get the results that you want.
Imagine a program that challenges you to proactively move throughout the resistance phase of growth and uncover barriers and gaps between your current habits and your desired results. Envision an innovative system that is a proven way to change the way the unconscious mind works so that you can conquer old habits and ensure a happy, healthy lifestyle.
