EP17: New Year's Resolutions: Dos and Don'ts for Creating Lasting Change
It's 2023, and we're back, baby! Everyone's talking about New Year's resolutions, and Sarah and Therapy Jeff have some thoughts of their own to share. Despite the fact that so many of us make them, New Year's Resolutions are notorious for being unsuccessful. Why is that? And why do we bother making them in the first place? As Sarah explains, there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting to start out the New Year with some goals in mind, but having unrealistic expectations can lead to feelings of failure, disappointment, and self-judgement. So Sarah and Jeff are here to talk about what makes for successful goals and resolutions in the New Year. Sarah explains why it's so important to look at the difference between resolutions we make for the person we think we should be versus the person we really want to be. And Jeff talks about setting goals that are based in inspired versus anxious action. Sarah walks us through a really useful exercise that starts with examining your current self-story and envisioning the best version of you that you want to work toward in the coming year, and Jeff has some really useful tips for how to start enacting that story in actionable ways.
We hope you all had a healthy and restful holiday. We're excited to kick off 2023 with you all!
