How to keep your resolutions

‘A change in bad habits leads to a change in life.’  Jenny Craig

Let’s face it. How many times have you decided to eat healthy foods? To take up exercise? To keep a diary?

No, I’m not trying to guilt-trip you. I just want to introduce you to this wonderful blog called 6Changes. It’s been recently set up by Leo Babauta (the author of the popular Zen Habits blog). 

The 6Changes title is based on the first piece of advice given by Leo Babauta: if you want to make positive changes in your life, only decide on six of these for the year, and tackle them one at a time. 

As the author explains, six changes in a year divides into 2 months spent on each, and this further divides into just over eight weeks per change. This allows you to set 8 milestones for turning each of your resolutions into a lifelong habit.

 By approaching the changes you want to make in your life in this methodical way, you are more likely to stick to your resolutions, rather than abandoning them when things get too much.
