8 TIPS FOR STICKING TO YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS
8 Tips for Sticking to Your New Year's Resolutions

Anyone can make New Year’s resolutions, but the hard part is sticking to them. To help you follow through with your goals, try these few easy steps.

 

1. Write them down. Record what you want to achieve and why. Each day, write down your progress toward your goals. That way, you’ll be able to keep yourself in check.

 

2. Tell a friend. Don’t try to achieve the goals on your own. Tell a friend or two who will support and encourage you along the way. The more people there are who know about them, the higher your likelihood is for success.

 

3. Remind yourself. Visual cues will help you stay focused. Wrap a loose rubber band around your finger. Post a picture on the refrigerator. Creative reminders will help you to keep you on target.

 

4. Stay positive. Negative thinking will get you absolutely nowhere. Don’t beat yourself up if you make a mistake or are taking a little longer than you thought to achieve your goal. Instead, focus on your success and progress.

 

5. Don’t overextend yourself. In short, don’t make too many resolutions at one time. Instead, focus on one, maybe two goals that you strongly want to accomplish.

 

6. Plan. Think about how you will achieve your goals, and plan for them accordingly. If you want to give up your morning doughnut, keep cereal on hand for breakfast instead. Or if you want to stop biting your nails, pamper yourself with a nice manicure.

 

7. Set realistic goals. Make resolutions that you can really attain. Break them down into small steps, and assess what steps can be taken to reach those goals. You don’t have to give up smoking and coffee on the same day.

 

8. Remain flexible. Don’t just give up on a resolution if it isn’t working. Modify it. If you can’t exercise five times a week, try to exercise three times a week. It’s okay to make adjustments to your resolution as long as you still stick with them.
