We’re sick of failed resolutions. Let’s shift our mindset and commit to the things that make us happy in 2018.
No more kicking off the new year by pinpointing what’s wrong with our lives and our bodies. No more deciding that a number on a scale is the only thing that will make this year better than the last. It’s time to shift our outlook on typical New Year’s resolutions!
We’ve all been there: starry-eyed on New Year’s day with a long list of things we want – scratch that – we KNOW we’ll change this year, only to consider our feats a failure months down the line. While the underlying themes of bettering yourself and bettering your health are worthwhile, setting unrealistic expectations about changing the “negatives” in our lives can leave us worse off than we were on December 31st.
But what if instead of trying to fix everything wrong in our lives, we used January 1st as an opportunity to shift our mindset? What if in 2018 we decided to commit to what makes us the happiest, instead of focusing on the things we want to change? This year, we’re ditching the arbitrary benchmarks and making a pledge to spend more time on the things that make us happy, and we want you to join us.
Is your normal resolution to work out every day? Try committing to being active in a way that is fun and makes you feel good, rather than focusing your imperfections and changing the way you look. Looking to free up your schedule and stress less? Commit to treating yourself to more time-saving indulgences, like meal delivery, to free you up for more “me time.” By zeroing in on the good things, the negatives in our lives will lose priority and weight.
In 2018, we’re giving you one mission: commit to what makes you happy. We’re challenging you to focus less on the things you want to change, and more on what makes you happy.
Share your commitment to happy in the box below and we’ll send it back to you a year from now so you can see if you spent 2018 committed to being happy:
