Everyone makes New Year’s Resolutions at the start of the year, but not everyone sticks to them. Want to know how to keep at your resolutions? We’re here to show you.
Everyone makes resolutions during the new year, but only a few people actually follow them through the end of the year. There seems to be something about New Year’s resolutions that make them seemingly impossible to continue as the year progresses. If you really want to change in the new year, we’ve got a few solutions for your New Year’s Resolutions.
Keep them simple.
Your resolution might be a complete overhaul of your lifestyle (i.e. going vegan), and while it may seem like a great idea, you’re most likely just going to end up disappointing yourself. Make your resolutions simple, perhaps, instead of going all-out vegan, you can vow not to eat chicken for the year.
Chunk them out.
Break down your goals, to easier, more manageable chunks. The more planning it is you do, the more will-power you’ll have to see the goal through, and the more likely it is for you to accomplish your goals by the time the year ends, or maybe even before that.
Make a time frame.
Your time frames are more or less the barometer of your success. Slowly, but surely, you assess a short-term goal, that when merged together, starts to form your long-term goal. Meeting your own personal deadlines will feel good and motivate you to continue on with your resolution.
In your planning a resolution, make sure to include some time for you to treat yourself for achieving your goals, even if they may seem small. Just try not to overdo it because you may end up just treating yourself and not actually working on your resolution.
Change is often good, so make some good changes this new year and work hard on being a happier, healthier, and better you!
