Fresh starts, like a new year are often used as the motivation for new habits and positive changes. However sustaining that motivation comes with its own set of challenges. For many people, the New Year’s resolutions are inspired by the wellness industry, which provides us with endless reminders to take care of our health and fix our implied brokenness. More often than not, the motivation for self-improvement comes with a tinge of aggression. There’s an implicit assumption that you are flawed and need correction. Realistically, if this is where the motivation to create positive change comes from, the chances that any change you made will stick is very slim.
