The new year is a time to reflect on your life and make goals for the future. Our New Years resolution is often something we plan to work on all year but typically end up quitting by about February. Make your resolution stick this year with these helpful tips!
Write It Down
A recent study shows that the first step to a successful new year’s resolution is to write it down. Write it on a calendar, set up reminders in your phone, put it on a sticky note for your bathroom mirror. Just make sure you write it down and keep it somewhere you can see it.
Be Specific and Realistic
How many years has your resolution been I want to “lose weight”? A good resolution is one that is specific. How many pounds do you plan to use? Another rule of thumb for success is to be realistic. If you never go to the gym, make your goal once a week. This way you can keep it simple and ease yourself in. Lastly, keep a reasonable number of resolutions. One big resolution, or two to three little ones is probably the most realistic for one year.
Break It Down
An ambitious goal can be very daunting when looked at as a whole. Breaking it down into bite-size pieces can make your goal more manageable. You will also be able to experience mini victories along the way, which is a great way to stay motivated.
Set A Timeline
Years are long, and change takes time. Chances are you will not meet your goal by February. Set a timeline for who long you think it will take to achieve your goal. Then set smaller timelines for the milestones you aim to hit as you work towards your goal.
Get an Accountability Partner
It can be hard to hold yourself accountable. Get someone else involved, they don’t even need to have the same goal as you. But they can motivate you to work on your goal and you can motivate them to work on their goal. It’s a win-win for both of you!
