Reframing Your Resolution Moving away from Gimmicks and Growth Mindset

Resolutions should not be viewed as rigid checklists of goals. Instead, they can be viewed as a framework of deliberate development. It is important to shift our focus away from the final result and towards the process. Instead of striving for a slimmer physique, think about establishing healthy habits such as regular exercise and eating mindfully. Instead of committing to learning a new tongue overnight make a commitment to a regularly practicing and celebrating the little victories you win throughout the process.
