28 Dec 5 Tips To Make This Year The Year You Actually Keep Your Resolutions
First and foremost, make sure that you are setting realistic goals and not setting yourself up for failure. This should be achievable goals that can be completed throughout the year. Be patient with yourself so that you can make true change in your life.
- Set Realistic and Specific Goals – Start small and be as specific as possible as to what you want to change this year. How is this year different than past years? Bring attention to each of your goals and focus on how you can be even more specific. For example, instead of saying that you want to volunteer in the New Year, pick a specific number of days a month you are committed to volunteering.
- Create a Timeline – It is hard to set yourself up for an entire year so let’s break it down. Lofty goals are the one’s that we never get to so think more short-term this time around. This will keep you engaged with what you set yourself out to do.
- Be Accountable For Yourself – Regularly pause and check in with yourself to make sure you are on the right track. Write down your goals so that you can check them off once they are complete and create deadlines.
- Give One Away – Make one of your new year’s resolutions about someone else. For example, be a better friend, neighbor or colleague. This is one of the most positive ways to stick to a resolution. When we make commitments to others, we tend to be more accountable because we don’t want to let them down. Show up and support others.
- Reward Yourself – Truly give thanks to yourself for all your hard work and efforts to being a better human. You deserve it! Once you accomplish a goal, treat yourself and practice self love.
