If you need a gentler New Year...
I have a little something for you.
Much of what we take for the rhetoric of the New Year is centered around the idea that we can control ourselves. If we follow the right diet or exercise routine then we’ll be living our best lives now! If we get our spiritual habits in order, we’ll be less keen to waste our lives. If we read more, or are on screens less, or finally tidy our kitchen at the end of each day, we’ll somehow have unlocked the secret to living a good life.
I’m sure you know by now that small, incremental habits are how we change. Want to grow in patience? I wish it were as easy as a magic wand, but it happens through small acts: practicing breathing, acknowledging the issue, saying I’m sorry and trying again the next day.
So if you’re looking for a gentler new year and want a little guide, I’m offering a free (through this weekend only!) guide to that end. In this workbook, you’ll get 6 habits to help you create more sustainable rhythms this new year. You’ll have space to journal and create small, sustainable changes in your day, week, and month.
Because as we enter the third year of a global pandemic, maybe we’re realizing our limits anew. We can’t wrestle our lives or even control them. But we can think about a few small habits that will ground us and orient us.
