We get a kind of high in the form of a dopamine hit from starting new resolutions. Sticking to them, on the other hand doesn’t give us the same high. That good feeling wears off, and it’s easy to fall off the wagon. We make more and more new commitments, and do whatever we can to get that high. Not sticking to our commitments means not only that we do not achieve our goals, but it can start to affect our self esteem.
Today I’m talking to Gabrielle Bernstein, creator of the Spirit Junkie Movement, about creating and sticking to your resolutions. Gabby is a bestselling author and international speaker who has received attention from Oprah and Deepak Chopra.
Stay tuned as we discuss self talk, the connection between your spiritual wellness and physical wellness, and listen in as Gabby guides us through a simple, short breathing exercise.
