Intentions & Recalculating
I like how the word “intentions” has replaced “resolutions” for New Years. It opens the pathway to change without setting yourself up for failure. I’ve asked my patients what their intentions are for this year and like each previous year; I get the same lofty answers of becoming fit or healthier. My one piece of advice is to start with something small that you can incorporate into or remove from your daily practice. Perhaps perform one hamstring stretch everyday or stop eating apple pie every morning for breakfast (true story). Once that becomes habit, add another step into your daily practice that is in line with your intention.
