Our 2/1 Back-to-Ones

We don’t love New Year’s resolutions. We do love resets– or as we call them, “Back To Ones”– and February is our favorite time to put them in place. Here’s how to reframe goals as resets, and why that’s not only a kindler and gentler approach, but a more effective one.

Are you already punishing yourself for breaking your impossibly difficult New Year's resolution? Yes, the one where you were going to eat 12 vegetables or run for 20 minutes or read an entire book every single day of 2023 (or do all three, for you masochists out there.) Here's how to work towards goals while remembering that so much of what we feel guilt over is actually morally neutral.

In this episode Amy and Margaret discuss how a "back to one" is different from a resolution, and how viewing resets as inevitable, rather than deep personal failings, is a much more productive approach. Still working on the same resolution from last year? Of course you are! Always be resolving–to move forward without guilt over what you didn't do yesterday.
