Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that your holiday season was filled with love, laughter, and happiness. Now is the time of year to make some New Year’s resolutions, and actually keep them! Did you know that only eight percent of people successfully fulfill their resolutions in a year? Here are a few tips that could help you become a part of that group.
When making your resolutions, it’s important to remember that it is all about quality, not quantity. Be sure to limit them to things that you really want to accomplish. Resolutions should be things that you really want to do, rather than things you should do. By doing this, you might be more motivated to achieve them. Your resolutions should also be specific. The more detail you put in, the easier it will be to accomplish. Once all of your resolutions are made, it’s time for you to make an action plan. We all know how easy it is to fall behind on resolutions, but if you have a specific plan, it is much easier to keep up with them. For example, a common New Year’s resolution is to exercise more. Instead of saying just that, decide the days and times that you will exercise throughout your week and mark it on your calendar. If you plan your work out times and write it down somewhere that you see often, you can get that constant reminder which will help you keep motivated.
There are many things that you can do to keep up with your New Year’s resolutions. If you work hard and stay motivated to achieve your goals, 2017 just might be your best year yet!
