Avoiding the New Year’s Guilt Trap | Mornings | 01-15-17

One of the reasons that I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions is that they tend to cause us to be too hard on ourselves. For example, when you say that your goal is to lose weight this year, it is usually because you feel like you failed at maintaining a healthy weight the year before.

Today, I want to offer an alternative approach to setting goals from one of our guest bloggers, Sheryl Nicholson. Instead of starting with our failures, she suggests that we celebrate our successes from the last year. This is the best starting point, in her opinion, for setting productive goals in the future.
