Break Barriers in 2017 with These Mind-Changing Mini Resolutions

Kurt Rickhoff

December 28, 2016

There’s a reason why the regular New Year’s resolutions like losing weight, exercising more and sticking to a budget are popular—so many of us need to do them! There’s also a common reason why so many of us fail to meet our goals in these areas: we haven’t developed the mindset to support the changes that we want to make.

Instead of setting a big, audacious goal right now, consider making some of what Jacob Geers of the ThoughtCatalog.com terms “mini-resolutions.” They’re little changes that can have a big impact on your mindset, and which can ultimately allow you to break the barriers holding you back from reaching bigger goals, such as losing 25 pounds this year. Here are a few examples:

  1. Get enough sleep. If you think sleep is a waste of time, consider that most people need between 7 and 8 hours a night to operate at peak performance. Getting less sleep can cause you to overeat, make poor choices when it comes to dealing with stressful situations, and just be plain cranky.

  2. Just say “no.” If you’re always taking on one more thing to help other people out, you may be sabotaging your own health and happiness in the process. Being more mindful about how you spend your time will give you the opportunity to do things that will move you closer to your own goals.

  3. Take a social media holiday. Research has shown that heavy use of social networks can actually cause feelings of negative self-worth, which is counterproductive in making good on self-improvement resolutions. Taking a break from social media will also free up your time to focus on your goals.

  4. Give yourself space. It’s amazing how much calmer, in control, and focused you’ll feel if you simply give yourself a little time and space to connect with nature, or even just allow some extra breathing room between meetings and other obligations. This can have a positive impact in other areas of your life which may need some tweaking, too.

While these mini resolutions may seem too small to make a difference at first, once you try them, it’s likely you’ll find yourself feeling more ready and energized to break down the barriers that lie between you and achieving the bigger goals you have for this year.
