3 Tips for Keeping New Year’s Resolutions
Making a New Year's resolution is one thing. Having the ability to stick to any goal and resolution you have in mind is another. Implementing a few tips along the way of setting a New Year's resolution is a way for you to ensure you are making the most out of the time you spend planning and achieving your goals.
- Start small: Begin creating a New Year's resolution by starting small with the goals you have in mind. If you are thinking of losing 50 pounds, understand that it is reasonable to lose one to two pounds weekly with a healthy diet and weight loss regiment. Keeping reasonable goals in mind throughout the weeks and months is a way to avoid feeling overwhelmed or disappointed in any progress you make.
- Create a resolution with a friend: Create a resolution with a relative or close friend to attempt reaching a goal you have both set in mind together. Working together with a friend or relative is ideal for support and can help to keep you motivated while attempting to reach any goals you have set.
- Log your progress daily: Logging your progress each day for any New Year's resolution you have set is highly recommended. Logging your progress daily is a way to feel as if you are moving forward continuously without being overwhelmed and disappointed if you have not reached a specific goal you set for a certain date.
Understanding that starting small and working together with others is essential to stick to New Year's resolutions is a way to save time regardless of the type of goal you have set for yourself. The more time and effort put into achieving your goals little by little, the easier it becomes to achieve success regardless of how big of a resolution you have in mind.
