Staying Motivated & Avoiding Procrastination

Staying Motivated & Avoiding Procrastination

We are almost three months into 2017. How are you doing with your New Year’s resolution?  

Recent research indicates that only 9% of us who make resolutions, feel like we have achieved them (http://www.statisticbrain.com/new-years-resolution-statistics/).  Are you one of the 9% who made it or one of the 91% who find staying motivated enough to complete such an important goal, is difficult?  

There are many reasons we get off track. Life circumstances sometimes dictate what we are able to do.  There are also other issues that  hold us back; ones that we have the ability to have more influence over.

Things like fear, worry, procrastination, or lack of confidence. These can keep us from doing things that are good for us.

On March 21st , from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM Appleseed Community Mental Health Center will be presenting a free seminar, Staying Motivated and Avoiding Procrastination.

This presentation will focus on learning techniques to help us think differently about the things that slow us down. There will be a review of common "thinking errors" and an opportunity practice ways to replace those negative thoughts with more positive re-frames.
