One of the most basic yoga poses is called Tree Pose, but on this day, for me, it was incredibly difﬁcult. I can do advanced balances with one leg in the air behind my back, but for some reason I could not stop wobbling in Tree Pose. I fell. I tried again. I fell. There are times in life when we wobble before we get to our destination. We oscillate. We are off balance. The most important thing is that we get up and attempt the endeavor again.
New Year’s Resolution
Many of us make a New Year’s resolution to be happier and healthier. Sadly, however, most of us never reach our goals. Why? How can we stack the odds in our favor?
The University of Scranton determined that only 77% of people who make resolutions are still going strong a week into the new year. And after six months, the percentage drops to forty. Bad habits sneak back into our lives within days of having grandiose ideas about how the next twelve months will be different.
