The beginning of a year often feels like a chance for a fresh start, a great opportunity to get rid of bad habits and make new commitments. Chances are at some point in your life, you’ve made a list of New Year’s resolutions, but only accomplished some of them. This year, break the cycle and learn how to smartly make, and KEEP your goals.
Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions are losing weight, developing a healthy diet, regular exercising, making better financial choices, quitting smoking or spending more time with family. Whatever your decision, make it as specific as possible.
For instance, if you select ‘getting in shape’ as your goal, determine how many days you are going to work out a week, how long per session, and invite your friends and family to join you so you’ll have an ally. One helpful tip is to put exercising clothes near you so you see them daily. That will encourage you to push through the excuses and hit the gym as you planned.
Here’s a video that is extremely coherent and helpful in helping you abandon bad habits, and develop healthy ones.
Attempting too many goals at a time can be daunting. Instead, focus on one goal at a time, which keeps the resolution much more achievable. For long-term or larger goals, break them into smaller chunks, and remember that sustaining small habits is the beginning of a change.
Another tip to keep your goals is to avoid repeating past failures. If you’re taking on a goal that you’ve tried for in the past, spend time evaluating why the plan did not make it. What kept you from reaching it? Which strategies were the most or least effective? Keep the parts that previously work, and replace the ones that didn’t with new objectives.
Once you have a detailed plan with achievable deadlines, keep track of it and celebrate every small success reasonably. It will make you feel rewarded and willing to continue making changes.
There are good days and bad days. If you fail to accomplish your daily goal, do not give up right away. Try again tomorrow, listen to yourself and take one day at a time.
According to a study, people who set New Year’s resolutions are 10 times more likely to actually make a change compared to those who don’t make these yearly goals. If there are any New Year’s resolutions that you’ve not achieved in 2022, try again next year with our practical tips. Celebrate each time you make a development, even small ones, be kind with yourself and take things at your own pace.
