We have a great show today with both guests talking about New Year’s Resolutions. Beth Reeder Johnson is talking about setting New Year’s resolutions that really stick. Von Eaglin is talking about New Year, New Habits.
Setting New Year’s Resolutions that Really Stick: 5 Ways to Create Lasting Habits
Beth Reeder Johnson is a licensed Psychiatric Social Worker and Individual, Family and Couples Therapist with over 14 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. She says that discipline is highly overrated. Beth doesn’t think that discipline is bad. If you want the chips and queso eat them with friends. But, if you are eating an entire bag of chips by yourself or downing a bottle of wine by yourself, rethink your dopamine release. There’s moderation in all things. Have a positive thought with your goals. Also, set reasonable goals by planning a cheat day or considering a day that you may “mess up” your cheat day. Not everything is going to be fun. But, have that subtle mindset shift where you make things fun. Even if something “sucks,” find ways in the most buddhist way to makes things fun and find joy.
