Here is what you can know about New Year Resolution, and if you want some ideas. A new year often feels like a fresh start, a great opportunity to eliminate bad habits and establish new routines that will help you grow emotionally, psychologically, socially, physically and intellectually strong in every possible way.
Of course, new year resolution is much easier to make than to keep and by the end of January many of us have abandoned our resolve and settled back into our old patterns. So If your New Year Resolution from last year have gone unresolved, you’re not alone. Let this year’s New Year offers another opportunity to achieve your goals, and these ten tips should help you keep to your New Year’s resolutions.
- Put a thought onto it
Make it something you really want. Don’t make it a resolution that you “should” want or what other people tell you to want. It has to fit with your own values.
- Limit your list to a number you can handle.
It’s probably best to make two or three resolutions that you intend to keep them. That way, you’re focusing your efforts on the goals you truly want.
- Take Baby Steps
Make a plan. Rather than stating one daunting goal, create a series of smaller steps to reach it. One task in hand at a time is the best policy to achieve best results.
- Break it Up
If your resolution is a large project, like getting fit, it would be wise to break it down into baby steps. Try mapping out a rough schedule for the year in advance, covering one part of your goal each month —deep research, diet charts, exercises and so on.
- Keep a resolutions chart.
This method is old school, but I am convinced it’s worth a shot. The idea is to hold oneself accountable each day through the habit of checking boxes in a chart is low tech but effective. It also keeps you motivated when you see your progress.
- Set up mobile reminders.
Most web based calendars, such as Google Calendar, allow you to set up reminder events with email or text reminders, making those trips to the gym a little harder to “forget”.
- Create visual reminders
Taping up notes and placing necessary tools where you won’t miss them, especially when you are first trying to adopt a new habit. For instance, if you want to start a no-shoes policy at home, try keeping a pair of slippers near the door and a bench.
- Lift Your Spirits
Watching funny movies or doing just about anything that puts you in a good mood.It also helps when willpower starts wearing down.
- Get Support From Your Friends and Family
When someone keeps acknowledging your hard work you feel motivated. Explain what your goals are to your close friends and family members and ask them to help you achieve your objectives.
- Don’t Let Small Stumbles Bring You Down
Encountering a setback is one of the most common reasons why people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions. If you suddenly relapse a setback, remember the path toward your goal is not a straight one and there are always going to be challenges.
