Fresh Start Effect

Have you heard of the Fresh Start Effect? It’s the idea that smaller markers of time can serve as openings to ask new questions, initiate new practices, or work toward new goals. Many people set aims like these when they make New Year’s Resolutions, but these can often be even more life-giving on smaller scales – days, weeks, and months.

Today is a new month.

Would you like to sit with a new question, try a practice for 30 days, or perhaps name April as the template for completing a step toward a larger goal or larger hope? We have such an opening today.

If you have thoughts on this — particular hopes, particular directions — I’d love to hear from you. What would you like April to be for you?
