The obvious is that we go with the flow of New Year's Reolutions....But this
time we shall try to understand and deal with the ongoing problem of
procrastinations, i.e. why we put off our health tasks and need to wait until
the New Year to begin and perhaps quit too quickly.
We are all playful about this part of ourselves, which has potentially
dangerous consequences. I hope each of you will think about what reasons you
individually have that keep you from initiation and maintaining your
successes: Perfectionsim? Avoidance of change because of anxiety or fear?
Not wanting to shift gears to take care of you? Social self-consciousness?
Fear of commitment, success or failure? Seeing the issues as too large and
It is worth figuring out for yourself as procrastination does not have to be
a permanent fixture in your life; rather it is a habit that can be
altered...with a little bit of help from your friends and an attitude fix.
Start with the easiest part first, prioritize, organize, target small
changes, make a commitment out loud with a partner or with a group such as
Weigh Watchers, or write about it. The following poem is by Wendy Satin

In the waiting
And the ending
No art at all.
