Let's Talk...Akrasia and Resolutions
Let’s talk about akrasia (new fun word right?!) and resolutions! Akrasia is “the state of mind in which someone acts against their better judgment through weakness of will.” It dates back at least as far as the philosopher Plato..I’m talkin’ BC people! The perfect example for me is setting a goal or resolution, and even though it may be what’s best for us, we so often get off track...aka...spend more money when we say we’ll save it, end up eating or drinking more when we have a weight loss goal, etc.
It’s never too late to set goals or follow through on something you’ve let fall at the wayside. My “New Years” resolution was to start stretching and doing more yoga! I have NOT fallen through with this resolution (ask everyone)! So, I’m calling all you guys and girls out there who thought it was too late to do whatever it is you want to better yourself. It’s not too late! So, since it’s now June, I’m making a Mid-Year resolution, and I’ll help keep myself accountable by documenting intermittently in my story on instagram! More yoga for me..what’s yours gonna be??
P.S. hopefully I’ll be able to do a little more than prayer position soon! 😜
