New Year's Resolution? Here is Some Helpful Tip!
Creating New Year Resolutions can be a great way to begin the new year. However, it is estimated that less than 8% of people who make new year’s resolutions stick to them. Most people can stay with their goals for the first couple of weeks but dwindle as they move from the holiday season back into their busy lives. Many people who successfully complete their New Year’s resolution make it into a permanent lifestyle change rather than a stint that’s impossible to maintain. Here are some items to think about as you create and work towards your New Year’s resolutions.
Be realistic in the number of resolutions you set this year. Even though there may be multiple areas of your life you want to change, you will be more successful having one goal to focus on rather than multiple. Furthermore, set yourself up for success rather than failure by picking a resolution that is attainable and becomes a lifestyle change you practice for years to come.
Plan the specific strategies you will utilize ahead of time that will allow you to attain your resolution. Make these strategies all contribute to a common resolution that can be done in your everyday life. If you don’t plan what and how you will accomplish your resolution, then you will be less likely to achieve it.
Create short-term and long-term goals
Creating short-term and long-term goals gives you a way to break up the large resolution you set at the beginning of the year into different goals that can be achieved throughout the year.
Track your progress
Try to set a goal that can be measured and tracked. If the goal is unable to be measured, then you will never know if you attained it or not. Once you attain the goal you created, reward your accomplishment. This will allow you to reflect on the progress you made and keep you motivated to continue forward.
Think of the “why”
After all the goal writing, try to think about your “why” for setting this resolution. Why do want to make this lifestyle change? How will this positively affect your life for many years to come? This “why” will be your inspiration throughout the entire process.
It is estimated that half of all resolutions are centered around either living healthier or losing weight. If you think you will need more support or expertise on how you could improve your health and wellness please give us a call.
