If you want to make sure you will be able to make your new years resolutions stick, there are a few things that you should make sure you do.
Make simple goals
Far too many people make difficult resolutions that they can’t reach and begin to get frustrated to the point where they stop reaching for it. Instead of making large resolutions make simple goals to reach a larger one. For example, if you wanted to workout more as your New Year’s resolution make a monthly goal for yourself each month to make sure you reach your resolution by the end of the year. It may not be a bad idea to start your small goals off easy and make them harder as the months continue.
Keep yourself accountable
Write your resolution down in a place where you can see it everyday. Personally, I like to write down my resolutions and goals on my calendar so that it is organized in an easy and quick way. When you complete a goal check it off and give yourself a little treat or celebration. If you don’t make your goal, mark that somewhere too. I also like to write down why I didn’t make the goal, so that I can attempt to figure out the reason behind it.
Make sure you will be happy
A big reason that people fail at completing their resolutions is because in the end they don’t enjoy it and don’t have a passion for it. For example if someone wanted to become a vegan but wasn’t happy with the food or missed meat, what is the point in going through with your resolution? If you aren’t happy with what you are doing or how you are going about it, then change it into something you like.
Get organized and fresh
Besides New Year’s resolutions I think it is always nice to start off the New Year in a clean, organized way. It is almost like starting the day; if you start out fresh and ready you will feel better and have a better day/year. Clean your room, house, desk, car, etc. and get organized. Buy a new calendar, planner, and/or journal so that you can start on a fresh new page.
Hope these little tips help and happy New Year!
