It's Day 2. I am wondering if you have started on your resolutions, or have read any of the information I posted yesterday?
Yesterday I went to the gym to continue working on my physical fitness. Today is a rest day, just as well, because for some reason I have woken up so tired I am struggling to keep my eyes open! So I am taking it easy and keeping my eyes on my overall goal.
Failure, set backs and being human are normal and that's why relapse is a recognised part of behaviour change. It is important to begin and continue and understand the path is not a straight line but full of twists and turns, hills and valleys and rest stops.

You need a plan.
I have included a YouTube clip and a file that walks you through a change I made in National Psychology Week in October this year. This looks specifically at mental health, but I hope you will find it useful for either a physical, mental or other types of goals you have..
