Resolutions

Sunday, 29 December 2013 08:13  by Michelle L.

It’s almost the New Year - time to make a New Year’s resolution. A New Year’s resolution is a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year. This sounds great, but how many people actually keep their New Year’s resolution past the month of January? Studies have shown that not many do. If you really want to see results this year, it’s important that you set your goals realistically and set yourself up for success. Here are some steps that may help.

  • Get Specific - A common mistake that people make is setting vague goals such as “I’ll be healthier.” Instead, make your resolutions specific.
  • Write it Down - Write down your goal and the steps it will take to achieve it. Sometimes it can become overwhelming and cause frustration, anxiety, or negative thoughts that can get in the way of you achieving your goal without a plan. By planning, you will be able to stay on track and be more positive.
  • Make Time - Be sure to set aside enough time to achieve your goal.
  • Move Past Doubt - It’s normal to have doubts or worry about whether you can accomplish your goal, but to make progress you have to move past the negative feelings.
  • Get a Partner - Having a group, friend, or professional to encourage you is a great motivator. Find someone to be supportive, positive, and keep you accountable.

Setting and reaching goals isn’t about willpower, but power of intention. Following these five helpful steps will get you much closer to accomplishing your New Year’s resolution this year!
