Ya I think I may of made the title of this topic a bit miss leading, yet it is meant to get people's attention to read it. I think I can also see your confusion, I believe they talking about not overloading or taking up so many hefty "self improvements". As nature of human beings, we struggle to change
so easily there.
Here is another article here
. Explaining the concept in a different way.
There are more news articles on the topic if you Google News Search, "charity mind new years resolutions"
I'll try and explain a bit more myself here too whilist I'm here
The charity Mind said according to the BBC News,
"Mind has urged people not to feel they must start 2009 armed with resolutions for self-improvement. "
They say if you push yourself to try these types of resolutions, "Hefty Self Improvements" if we break them due to some ill factors of our lives. That we could be making ourselves feel let down and our feelings would be even more lower.
We should not arm ourself into such tough "Self Improvement" for New year resolutions until our minds feel mentally strong for those. We should do those when we feel the moment and time is right for us, with little pressure on our mind.
The charity Mind has suggested 4 different types of New Year resolutions that are more easily achievable. Achieve those and we'll feel more happier quicker. Also these smaller achievements could eventually make us more mentally stronger and lead us to encouraging our, "self improvements" even more.
And if we do fail our hefty self improvements, don't beat ourselves up about it, we can always try again another time ^^.
Did my, 'explaining a bit more' help clear the fog there?
