It’s New Year’s Eve again, and like most people I have a resolution this year, I’ve been fairly successful in the past, but I’m concerned with how successful I’ll be this year. Here. Are some tips that I’ve found helpful in the past
make a good list chances are you are aiming a little high. Think of all the the things you would want to change, a little depressing I know but the tips get more fun I promise. Think of your schedule and what you can manage. Keep your goal actually reachable, otherwise you are just setting yourself up for failure.
try and find a friend with a similar goal let’s face it everything is more fun with a friend! So think about who you know who has brought up that. Subject, or just ask a few friends for their resolutions and see if any match.
make it specific not just I want to eat healthy. Say I want to make sure I get at least 3 vegetables a day. This makes you more aware of what exactly you need to do.
don’t throw it away, add to it don’t just say I don’t want to eat as much junk food say for every time I eat junk food I will have a fruit for my next snack.
it’s okay to break it January is a beat month when it comes down to it. So don’t just give up if you have a bad few months, the resolution is for the whole year and these cold gloomy winter months are only a small part of the year, visit it in may when everything is coming back to life, or in June or even n the fall, don’t just quit right away.
reward yourself go get that ice cream cone in June, or go shopping when you turn down a cigarette, you just did it! That’s exciting, you deserve it!
tell people your goal no one likes to lose, so you are always more likely to stick to it when people know you are trying.
make an inspiration board grab a glue stick and some magazine cut outs, some glitter, and inspirational quotes. Put it somewhere you pass often, I normally put mine on my door so. Have to pass it every time I leave my room. It helps inspire you.
have fun with it unless your goal was t o tour hire yourself over every set back have fun. Laugh at your mistakes and try a little harder next week. In the end YOU HAVE A YEAR! Change isn’t that easy so have fun while you go, or it will be a long year.
Hope this helps you stick to your goals, I know I’m excited to start on mine. And as always have a day as cheerful as freshly baked cupcakes!
