" Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown."

Change for yourself

Any goals you set should come from a sincere desire to change for yourself. Research has shown that negative feelings are a frequent cause of relapse in behaviour-change programs, and resolutions that feel like punishment can cause negative feelings.

All resolutions should be perceived as positive changes that will help you reach optimal health and well-being. Don't decide to change to please anyone other than yourself.

And remember, resolutions are an opportunity for you to look forward in a positive way rather than to punish yourself for past behaviours.
