This year consider adding the concept of evolution to that of making resolutions. What resolution, new focus or intention could you implement that would help you to evolve? Evolution is a process in which we grow, become stronger and fortify our inner resources. As we evolve, we access new possibility and the energy to create sustainable change. If we focus on creating intentions and resolutions that will facilitate our evolution, we’ll get more out of our investment. How could you connect more deeply with yourself, your body and your innate wisdom? What can you do to evolve your consciousness to access more energy to drive and fuel the changes you seek in your life?
Thankfully there are simple ways we can rapidly evolve. For example, 5 minutes of Somatorespiratory Integration on a daily basis will change your life (see our SRI video). It can be most effective to integrate simple and small sustainable changes that build and generate momentum over time. Big changes are more difficult to sustain because they involve more pieces and often do not evolve from the organic growth of energy and momentum in our lives. Rest assured, any small, incremental and sustainable changes that you make will have a huge affect on your wellbeing over time. Consider that if the captain changes the course of their ship by only one degree, across the span of an ocean, it could end up on a completely different continent. Health and wellness grow from the little things we do consistently throughout our lives (diet, rest, exercise, and chiropractic care). Check out our blog (De-stress and Revitalize in 5 Minutes or Less) for some simple actions you could take regularly to help you stay on course.
In seeking evolution there are many resolutions you could make that would help you connect more deeply to your innate wisdom and grow your energetic resourcefulness to be more of who you really are. What will give you the most bang for your buck? Any success in growing your energy will be most beneficial and starts with the basics: just think about what a good day you can have after you’ve exercised, eaten well and had a good sleep the day before. For many, it can be an excellent choice to focus on some of the basic sources of energy like rest (sleep), diet, and exercise. With more available energy we will naturally and effortlessly evolve.
Earlier this year, we made a change in our diet that has had a profound impact on our energy levels (read about it here). Perhaps you’ll gain more energy by focusing more on your emotional, mental or spiritual wellbeing by choosing something like yoga, prayer or meditation. If you do make a resolution this year be sure to choose one that’s specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound (see this New York Times article on SMART resolutions ).
