We‘ve probably even made a number of new year’s resolutions to motivate ourselves to make some positive life change – lose weight, stop smoking, drink less, exercise more. The new year has become a tra- ditional time for making big life decisions, seemingly based on what we don’t like about ourselves. It’s easy to see why the beginning of the year might seem like a good time to make change, with the end of one year and the start of another. However, let’s explore whether this is an appropriate (or even sensible) time to initiate BIG change. For many of us, the beginning of a new year is a stressful time – physi- cally, financially and emotionally – so why would we put extra pressure on ourselves to make big changes? New year’s resolutions often fall by the wayside and we are left with feelings of failure and disappointment for not sticking with it. Then we feel worse and end up giving up on our ideas for change altogether (until next year’s list of resolutions). What if we did it differently? What if we chose to make change at some other time of the year that’s not attached to a significant event? What if we decided to only change one thing at a time? What if we first thought about why we want to make a change? Is the need for change com- ing from ourselves or from others who think we should make changes? What if, after considering these things, we decide when, how and what changes we wish to make at a time that suits us? What if we had a really clear plan about how to achieve
