As 2017 continues, people are hopefully staying strong with their New Year's resolutions. But at the same time, change can be very difficult for people. People often expect for change to happen immediately, and don't let the process commence. That's what Karen Vatthauer, Therapist and Owner of Beacon Professional Counseling, said she's gained from her experience. She said people often think change is just one step, but it isn't. She said it's multiple steps, with many of those being steps back.
Vatthauer said people often have unrealistic expectations where they expect to change too fast. She said people need to remember that it will take time to break the old habits and for the new habits to take over.
Vatthauer appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
