The start of a new year is always great to reflect on our own goals and dreams and to set an intention for change. But how do we get out of old behaviour and adopt a new way of living?

In my own experience and by observing others this has hardly ever worked.
If there’s something bothering you and you’re longing for a change, i.e. a change of diet, letting go of undesirable habits like smoking, drinking, sleeping in… We have seen this all being proclaimed at 12am on the 31st of December by many people and some even got up the next day and made a start but hardly ever anyone lasted longer than January on that course.
