It’s that time of year again, many are thinking new year time for a new start! The idea of new year’s resolutions is really quite old. In fact, ancient Babylonians are thought to have been the first people to make New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. But there is a twist! The new year actually started in mid-March, when the crops were planted.
Why am I mentioning this? Because so many people start out gung ho but by the end of the month not so much anymore. I feel it is because we are not following the growth cycle of nature. Winter is hibernation time, slow down time, and reflection time. It really isn’t the time to start things it is a time to end things.
My suggestion is going to be different. During this new year’s time start a resolution to end things and plan for the new start in spring. Take this time to reflect on you and your life and map out a plan to start in spring.
