Checking in on my New Year’s “Un-Resolution”

My "Un-Resolution":  I Didn't Improve One Damn Thing. As the month comes to a close, I'm wondering how many of you kept your New Year's Resolutions. Maybe some are still at it. Maybe some lasted a week, and then your life got busy. Maybe, you were like me, and it was just another day and you are good enough the way you are and you are just going to "keep on, keeping on". Whatever the case may be. Good for you. Day-to-day living can be stressful. I feel like most days, if I didn't scream in my head at least fifty times some swear word, it wasn't that bad of a day. I just keep taking one day at a time, try to be positive, handle problems when...

It takes two weeks to create a habit

Start small.  Make small changes. New Year's resolutions are difficult to maintain.  Gym rats always say that January is the suckiest month to be in the gym.  All of the newbies with resolutions clog the gym arteries with their good intentions. February 1st, they can breathe again because everyone has given up. Its getting close to February 1st, have you given up on your health goal? Any habit, based on scientific studies, takes 2 weeks to create.  During the first two weeks, its a choice.  After two weeks, it has become a habit. So start small.  Replace one soda a day with water.  Replace one crappy snack with an apple.  Take a ten minute brain break and walk outside, or even stroll around your building.  Meditate for 2 minutes...

Connection between mental, emotional and physical health

Mental and emotional health play a larger part in your physical health than you might realize.   The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health as a: state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. They say that there is no health without mental health. Googling the words "mental health physical health" returned about 197,000 results in under one second.  There have been thousands if not millions of studies surrounding the connection.  I can vouch for the connection in my own life.   Between July of 2012 and March of 2013, I lost 40 pounds walking, dancing with my kids and the Xbox, and riding my bike.  I felt pretty good, even though I still wanted to lose about 20 more pounds. I...

Why I’m a part of the Mind Key Community, and you should be too. A NewYear’s Resolution

Sarah Loukos looking at both Mind Key Anthologies as the audience enjoys another artist story. Last night, in a small town library, seven artists sat in front of a group of people who wanted to listen and learn about our Anthologies. We read from the book, talked about our art or our writing and what our past was like and how living your happiness is what really motivates us to keep doing what we are meant to do in our hearts. The average age that came to listen was 70 years old. Now, mind you, I'm not complaining, I'm so happy that at 70+ years old, they are still searching and growing and are full of life, they want to live happy. They chose Mind Key to learn something and to...

Making a 365 resolution–is it right for you?

What is the difference between a resolution and a #365project?  Not much, other than a #365project is something you resolve to do every day for an entire year. Writing coach, Marisa Goudy Today I want to share writing coach Marisa Goudy's experience with #365projects.  I've done this a million times--usually promising to write, walk, or do yoga everyday.  Usually, these resolutions fall flat--whether they're made on January 1st or in the middle of the year. Two years ago, the same year her second child was born, Marisa successfully completed her #365project...

My New Year Irresolution

At Mind Key we focus on finding our inner strength and peace.  As members we rely on a small voice that calls us to determine our true destiny and to reach our highest potential.  To do so it takes practice, patience, and enlightenment.  Focusing on new milestones is something we often do at the end of a year.  As the holidays approach and we ready ourselves for 2016, we’re faced with the future.  Where will our hearts take us?  Will we find the right path?  Will we conquer our fears and accomplish what we were created to do?  Sometimes the answer to those questions comes in the form of resolutions, a common practice when confronting a new year. As for me, I call mine ‘New Year...

What is a resolution? Why do it?

What is a resolution?Merriam Webster defines "resolution" simply as: the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc. : the act of resolving something : an answer or solution to something.This offers an interesting light in which to cast our New Years resolutions.  What are we actually doing when we make them?  Are we resolving to fix or find an answer to a conflict or problem in our life?Considering this definition prior to jumping feet first into a resolution that is impossible to keep could provide the insight needed to make that resolution last. According to StatisticBrain.com, the #1 New Year's resolution is probably exactly what you think it might be: To lose weight.   The first question to ask is why.  Why...
