Though, on the other hand, there is something that does make me feel rather uncomfortable about it. This is because I wonder where the motivation lies in such slogans and why a new year is required in order to stimulate some positive changes! Worst of all, like a lot of my gym-routines, my 'new year, new me' mantra tends to fade away after a week or two when reality hits.
So this year I am scrapping the 'new year, new me' mantra and instead will focus on the following 5 promises to myself to guide me with this process, and I hope you find them helpful too!
Do you have any techniques that you are happy to share? What promises are you making to yourself? Feel free to share in the comments and let me know!
