New Year, new direction?

IMG_2514What journey of change do you want to start on?

New year, new you!!!

How does the 2019 ‘you’ look?


Now the Xmas decorations are down, we are looking forward to the weeks and months ahead. The early days of January are cold and gloomy, in the Uk at least, and how we might plan for the spring and summer ahead, starts to loom in our minds.

What needs a refresh, a clear out or a complete change, with new habits or patterns of behaviour?

How would you like things to be different?                                                                         Do you wish to :-

  • become more active or sneak activity into each working day
  • eat more healthily or plan to have a meat free day each week
  • focus on thinking more positively or introduce gratitude into your evening journal
  • connect with nature or plan with colleagues to get outside each day in your break
  • feel calmer and focused or incorporate meditation or self hypnosis into your day
  • become stronger in mind and body or start your day with yoga stretches

The more you are able to break your vision down into small achievable goals, the more likely you are able to practice them and incorporate them into your daily routine.

By visualising how you you would like things to be in the future you can begin to set a new direction. If you don’t put some time and energy into thinking about this, life will continue the same.

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got” Henry Ford


It’s about thinking about what you want for the new you!

Setting a new direction has never been easier. There are a whole range of ideas, information and resources to access via the internet. These will inspire you to begin your journey. Lots of people are discussing new challenges, particularly as we start the year and friends and family can help set you on your new journey.

Maintaining the journey is often the biggest challenge!

Sometimes we just need some moral support. By fully examining the habit with another person and breaking it down into achievable and maintainable steps can bring a much greater chance of success.

Seek help from those around you who can bring a fresh pair of eyes.

If this is not readily available look for local services which can support you.
