Designed to be run in the New Year, Resolve aims to help create positive, lasting change. Each week delegates explore what the experts have to say, talk to other delegates about what they think and engage in a variety of practical exercises to help them accomplish their goals. The four sessions cover the topics of: looking after your body, strengthening your mind, inspiring your soul and deepening your relationships.
The DVD contains four videos which feature a number of experts from various professions, including doctors, psychologists, professors and religious leaders. They also include advice on how to make sustainable resolutions and short vignettes to stimulate conversation.
Where is the space now in my life, and how could I use those moments and reclaim them for something good?
Dr Roger Bretherton, Psychologist
It can look like a lot of things: eating healthier, exercising more, and getting better sleep. As we make New Year resolutions, to better care for our bodies is often one of the first things we promise ourselves. During this session, we'll hear from several experts about one of the things that helps you look after your body best: consistency.
This means taking the time to develop resiliency. A strong mind doesn't mean that you are never overly challenged, stressed or frazzled. Instead, it means that we are better equipped to deal with these situations when they arise. During this session, our experts will discuss what it means to train our brains this New Year.
Involves finding the spaces in your life where you think, "this is what gives life its meaning." This looks different for everyone, but one thing remains the same: it's important to take the time to care for the part of you that seems to tap into something larger than life. Thanks to our experts, this session will remind us what it means to draw from that deeper sense of existence with more frequency in our everyday lives.
This asks you to take a step back and look at how you treat the other people in your life. Are there people in your life who you know deserve more of your time and attention but never seem to get it? This session is a chance to receive expert advice on how to put these relationships first, and to keep on doing so in a way that enriches both lives.
