Try Something New… Now!

So many of us like to use the new calendar year in January as a chance to realign our goals and take on new ones.  Let’s get a jump start on that and start now in December.  I know we are all busy with holiday shopping, parties, celebrations, year end needs and goals but what can you take on now as a gift to you?

Hard to think about adding a gift to yourself to your list? It can be as simple as take three deep exhales now.  Not later.  Get up and stretch for three seconds now.  Not later.  Sign up for dance lessons now — not in January.

I know we all talk about having a bucket list.  So many things to learn and try and see and experience. Yoga would be so good for me. I should meditate more often. Eating less chocolate would be a healthy change.

Well I finally had a guitar lesson and had my six-year-old practice with me after. Big exhale! Guess what? It actually wasn’t painful, not even a little! I would probably even say it was fun. So do something new now. Try it once. No shoulds or buts. Just try something new once before 2011!

This month’s teaching is in memory of Howard Steinmetz z”l, a lifelong learner.

Blessings, Deb
