Mindful : October 2018
Make a Change that Lasts Turning over a new leaf in life can feel daunting, if not impossible. Here’s how you can keep your resolve and follow through. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Elisha Goldstein is a psychologist, cofounder of the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, and creator of the online mentorship program “A Course in Mindful Living.” Making meaningful changes to create a life more aligned with who you want to be isn’t that hard: To be more fit, you can exercise; to be a better writer, you can write more; to be more mindful, you can practice mindfulness. We know making these kinds of changes is good for us and even feels good. But making them stick? Well, that’s another story. To make lasting change, we need more than desire and willpower. It requires an understand- ing that our brains are wired to create obstacles that hinder us from making healthy changes, and that, thanks to technology, it’s harder than ever to maintain focus. Maybe most importantly, we need to understand that we are not islands, and that our social and physical environments can make the difference between ongoing motivation and incessant procrastination. Once you understand these obstacles, you can begin to take simple steps to organize your life in a way that inspires the sustainable changes you want to make. Here are the biggest threats to our well- intended efforts to change, and how to counter them mindfully. 18 mindful October 2018 LIVING | how to By Elisha Goldstein • Illustration by Bret t King
