Need a Fix?
Have you made a list of all the things you are going to “fix” in the New Year? You know, things like your weight, your exercise routine, your relationships?
New Year’s resolutions are our attempt to right the ship, so to speak, yet we often sabotage our efforts by surrounding ourselves with lots of other things that aren’t working: that window blind that won’t open; the drawer that’s jammed; the desk chair with the broken roller wheel.
In 1982, James Q. Wilson and George Kelling introduced us to the “broken windows theory” which essentially speaks to how it only takes one or two broken items to start a downhill spiral of disorder. That’s why it’s so important to fix those little things. Crossing a few small items off your “to do” list can go a long way toward helping you stay focused and motivated to address some of the longer-term fixes, such as losing weight.
Look at the new year as an opportunity to either fix or rid your life of things that don’t work so you can start with a fresh slate. The Chinese celebrate their New Year in February and I invite you to join me in a celebration on Feb. 4, 2016 that will help you bring order and balance to your life. Last year, we sold out so make sure to sign up today!
