Life Hack #52: The Power of Fresh Starts

Have you thought about what the next year will bring for you? Do you get energized by new beginnings? The research is mixed around the success rate of New Year’s resolutions, stemming in part from how success is defined and in part from the time frames measured. One thing seems to hold true though. The concept of fresh starts can be a very useful way to look at behavior change. Studies show that fresh starts can be a powerful motivator for us! New Year’s is perhaps the most obvious, traditionally-recognized fresh start, but fresh starts can come from lots of different places: a new hour, a new day, a new job, a birthday. Each of those fresh starts presents us with an opportunity to start anew. Fresh starts can be energizing, motivating, inspiring, and can help us to start a new habit with a clean slate. So what times in your life can serve as your fresh starts? What will you choose to do with them? Consider harnessing the power of fresh starts when you are looking to make a change in your life!
