As the New Year rapidly approaches many of us are thinking about resolutions we would like to implement in 2016, but how about letting go of what does not serve us? One of my New Year’s resolutions is moving forward in life with ease and grace. If something negative happens, rather than dwell and hang on to it I am learning to address it, learn from it, and let it go!
This can be a sad or emotionally difficult breakup to realizing a certain behavioral pattern is no longer serving you. While letting go, do not forget to be easy on yourself.
Awareness of what doesn’t work in our lives is 90% of the letting go battle.
Pat yourself on the back for reading this blog which causes us to become more aware...I am excited for you as you let go of 2015 and embrace the New Year.
How do you let go? Here are some of my go-to tips:
- Find a body of water! Did you know bodies of water can absorb negativity? Whether you go for a walk by a pond, visit an ocean, or even run your bath! Say what you want to get rid of and tell the water to take it! (I swear I’m not a nut!)
- Write it down and get rid of it!!! Take a piece of paper and write down, “Needing control every hour of my schedule no longer serves me and makes feel anxious. I am letting go of my need to control!” Take the piece of paper, rip it up and throw it away.
- Tell someone with whom you are close what it is you are working on letting go and ask them to help keep you on track!
