Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work and Why Our Efforts to Change Fail

It’s the time of the year of making all sorts of promises to ourselves, most of which we will break.

Desiring change is admirable, but, as psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic writes, “there’s a big difference between longing for the results that come from change and committing to do the work that such change requires.”

Research suggests that our traits are fairly fixed, so seeking change that requires a personality reboot is more likely to fail. The United States Health Foundation states that behavioral change science studies suggest that it takes at least 1 month to make behavioral changes and 6 months to become part of and maintain a healthy life style, and that the key is to pursue shifts that play to our existing qualities and strengths.

Ayurveda, which is based on assessing our natural tendencies and looks at resetting our internal technology by understanding ourselves and our relationships to our thoughts and our environments, addresses root cause elements that create and shift patterns.  Our supportive 6 week and 6 month programs provide the support and time frame necessary to make the change you want to see to find freedom, feel better and live purpose.
