Keeping New Year's Resolutions
by Carla Hill
Have you made a new year’s resolution? If you’ve tried to keep up with a resolution the whole year through, you already know how difficult it can be to stick to your guns.
We can become easily distracted by day-to-day activities or simply fall victim to old habits and routines.
Making a new year’s resolution is about just that. It’s about breaking old habits and retraining or reprogramming the way you live or approach your life.
- Post It: We have a way of thinking of a grand idea and then forgetting it. If you make a chart, graph, or simple journal entry detailing what you want to accomplish, you are more likely to keep at it. Hang a post-it note on your mirror or a note on the fridge as a daily reminder!
- Get a Buddy
- Keep a Journal
- Be Kind
- Set Time Specific Goals
- Have Consequences
Setting a new year’s resolution is an admirable task!
The new year is a great time to mark a new way of thinking, being, or doing.
