LOSE WEIGHT! GET FIT! STOP SMOKING! SAVE MONEY! FIND NEW JOB!
So many of us place a list of demands and more upon ourselves as each new January begins. We save them up so we tackle them all at once and if we succeed, we can justifiably feel pleased and proud of ourselves for sticking to the resolutions and achieving our desired outcome. Some of us have more will-power than others, while others give up at the first ‘temptation’ to binge on cream cakes, take up smoking again or buy that new handbag. Then comes the problem of keeping to these resolutions throughout the year…special occasions, such as holidays, weddings etc prompt a resurfacing of resolutions and we embark on a continual treadmill of resolve and also guilt if we feel we have let ourselves down. Why do we place such demands upon ourselves? Yes, we want to feel fitter, feel healthier, look better etc etc, and if we wish this for ourselves then great, but if we feel we need to live up to the expectations of others, the media, society, then perhaps we need to take a deeper look at why we feel we need to ‘do’ something or ‘be’ something other than our own true selves. But back to the New Year’s Resolutions….the Bach Remedies not only help us when we are in negative mood or emotional states; they can help support us when we are going through life trying to do more positive things like eating healthier, being more active, not buying unnecessary gadgets or living beyond our means etc. For those who are determined to keep to their resolutions but might need a wee bit of help, then check my Pinterest and Google + pages for some Bach Remedy suggestions.
