Make up Doctor Rita Parmar writes about her cleansing promise to herkself As far as New Years’ resolutions go, I know I’ve made a few but every year I look back and try to work out why some work and others just don’t. I once decided that my resolution was to go to the gym five days a week, every morning before work. Did it happen? Nope.

The resolutions I was making were by no stretch difficult tasks, so why couldn’t I do them? It’s because they were too big, and what I mean by that is they were unrealistic. If I had said that I would go to the gym twice a week or just once or wrote the journal every Sunday it would have been far more realistic. Moral of the story: ‘Be Realistic’. Anyway, I doubt you started reading this to hear about my rubbish resolutions. So, this one year I could see that my make-up had started to … [Read more...] about New year cleansing

Often, you ought to ignore the urge to commit to a big behavior change. The canary in the coal mine for big behavior change is systematic failure. When there is a goal that is really critical to you that you are systematically failing to achieve, that is the signal that you need to do something different if you want to succeed. The significant systematic failures in your life are probably rare. You are holding down a job, enjoying your friends and your family, and maybe even some romance. Tiny changes versus “disruption”? Think about your life like a … [Read more...] about Why making New Year’s resolutions is a bad way to start the year
