1. I’ve also had success with starting slow and taking things one at a time. If I can stick with a change for 3-4 weeks, it becomes a habit and I don’t have to think about it or struggle with it anymore. Then I can move on the the next thing. I’ve quit making resolutions, however, and choose a few goals instead. And I agree 100% – just start when the mood strikes instead of waiting until Jan 1st.
