Embracing a Mindful Approach to New Year’s Resolutions

04 Jan 2024 by Ted Escobedo   1 min read

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of the present moment, without judgment. It can be practiced through focused activities like meditation or embraced throughout the day in contemplation, awareness, and reflection.
Well-established research has found that practicing mindfulness, as through meditation practice or mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques, can have a positive effect on stress, anxiety, and depression. Applied to New Year’s resolutions, the principles of mindfulness can help us embrace acceptance and patience as we commit to and actualize our goals daily. Mindfulness can also help us learn to let go of days we missed our resolution, rather than ruminating on negative thoughts and giving up on resolutions entirely.
