Like many of us, you’ve probably already lost the thread of how you resolved 2015 would be more than once. Of course the goal isn’t to watch water boil with your intentions every hour of the year, rather it is to plant a seed and give it the conditions where it will grow.
Here are 5 Essential Insights into the nature of our human design to help your resolutions grow, bloom, fruit and seed again.
1. Create a Dynamic Picture with Feeling
A phrase doesn’t cut it. “I’m going to be more _______________ this year.” Create an image of how you want it to look and feel. Make sure the image and the feelings match each other. Go ahead, do that right now. It will take you less than a minute.
2. Listen to Yourself and the Signals Your Body/Mind are Getting
Like watching a plant grow, you need to be in tune with the signs of what conditions are needed. Your plant will show you. Its visible. If you don’t listen, honor and respond to the guidance messages you have, WHO WILL? Make checking-in with yourself a regular practice of your day. Ask yourself “what’s needed?” and seek to listen to what cue and signals you are getting to better adapt to your “day to day.”
3. Create Balance and Harmony in Your Lifestyle (a.k.a. Live Simply)
Long periods of sitting at desks, smoking, processed-sugar-spiked foods, data overloads, social isolation, high-velocity traumas, environmental chemical exposure are all things we aren’t well adapted to live with. It is essential then to create lifestyle that are well suited to who we are. Sometimes we get to walk several miles as our ancestors did, but sometimes we get 20 minutes on the jump rope. Its not about purity, its about feeding our human needs as best we can given our circumstances. What are the top three things you do regularly that are well suited for you? What are the top three things you do that you aren’t well suited for? Got it? Okay good, Now you know what needs to happen next, right?!
4. Deal with Your Stress
Mismatched lifestyle elements, such as lack of sleep and social isolation, will increase your chronic stress. Chronic Stress is the long term stress that becomes toxic, like lack of essential nutrients or poverty. Having Stress Intelligence then is a key factor to a healthy and successful life.
