STOP WITH THE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS!
You may have made some late night/early morning resolutions coming into 2019 in a somewhat depleted state. Step back breath and rethink how you can make decisions for your year ahead, that will last past the second week in January. Many resolutions can feel like a heavy weight on your head because they weren’t well thought out – lets change this.
Take January to figure out what you want out of the this year 2019 – think out a theme for your year (eg gratitude,self care, inner strength) and then line up your wishes and desires under that theme.
Consider January your dream-time. Once you take the time to imagine and visualize what really inspires you, then your actions will be in alignment with them. Then, when we ease up to the Chinese New Year—the Year of the Earth Pig on February 5th.
According to the practices and wisdom of traditional five element acupuncture winter is a time of deep rest, of going deep into the well. There’s not a lot of action. There is less light to remind us to go inward. The landscape reflects our bodies.
Each season asks us to pivot and adjust, to mirror what nature is doing. Right now, nature is in retreat. Unless it warms up again, the trees won’t flower or bloom until Spring—which is closer than you think. In the Chinese calendar, inklings of Spring start in February, coinciding with the Chinese New Year. And, this is another reason to take a hiatus on your resolutions.
