Tips to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Stay committed to your New Year’s resolutions.

2017 is coming to an end.  This means that it’s time to start looking forward to the New Year.  If you are like many other Americans and have struggled to keep your resolutions in the years past, make 2018 different.  Try out these tips to keep all your resolutions this new year.

1) Choose Wisely

Many people are pressured into choosing resolutions at other people’s suggestions.  However, don’t be swayed by others’ opinions and expectations.  You should always set goals that represent your beliefs and values.  By setting goals that you actually care about, you will have an easier time staying committed to your resolutions.

2) Make a Plan

While many people set vague goals for themselves, this makes it much harder to stay motivated.  Instead, set specific goals and make a plan for how to achieve your aims.  For instance, instead of vowing to exercise more, detail how many days a week you will attempt to hit the gym.  Additionally, block out time for you to exercise so you don’t make excuses for yourself.  Being strict with yourself and sticking to your plan will help you maintain your resolutions all year long.

3) Be Reasonable

Setting overwhelming or impossible goals isn’t going to help anyone.  It’s important that you be realistic and understand your limitations.  It’s great to push yourself, but there’s only so much you can do. Being reasonable and honest with yourself will help you set goals that are actually achievable.

4) Tell Others

Finally, telling others about your New Year’s resolutions will keep you accountable.  Knowing that people are watching you and have expectations for you will help you stay motivated.  Avoid revealing your goals to naysayers and instead tell the positive people in your life.  Their encouragement and support will help you stay dedicated to your resolutions this year.
