Bipolar Disorder and Resolutions: Stop Stressing Over Them
Pick one thing and focus on the power of 1-percent.
Many estimate that most New Year’s resolutions last less than 3 weeks.
If that’s true for you, you may have already abandoned the resolutions that you set to start on January 1st. And you know what? That’s okay.
Those of us with bipolar disorder often put unrealistic expectations on ourselves.

We believe we can tackle everything all at once, and then, when our plans don’t quickly come to fruition, we give up and walk away. I know, because that’s what I’ve done for years. Except for the last few years, and those years have made all the difference.
The world will have you believe you must make amazing changes at the beginning of every year.
Guess what? January 1st is just a day.
And it’s no different from any other day.
If you want to make real and lasting change in your life, you can start any day. January 1st doesn’t have to mean anything.
“What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”
