How To Make and Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions
Everything you need to accomplish your goals for the new year
By : Veronica LeMaster
It’s that time of year again where we sit back and think of all the goals we set for 2019 and why we didn’t get around to accomplishing them. Most new year’s resolutions fail before February, and that’s why we’re here to tell you how to make and keep those goals you set for 2020.
The first step is picking a resolution that is fit for you. You’ll have the most success if you pick a goal that is do-able for you, and one that you can believe you can accomplish. Set goals that are specific, measurable, relevant and time-bound to get the most success.
For example, a common new year’s resolution is to save more money. To make this resolution more achievable, set a goal to put $100 in your savings account every month. That way, you can see your goal in action every month instead of waiting for an end result!
After you’ve created your new year’s resolution (or resolutions), come up with a game plan. Improving your life won’t happen overnight, and neither will achieving these set goals. Create a realistic plan that you know you’ll be able to stick to. For example, a common new year’s resolution is to exercise more.
To achieve this goal, a realistic plan would be to go to the gym 3-4 days a week after work. Once you have a schedule down, you’ll form a habit that will make working towards your goals no work at all!
If you’re finding it difficult to accomplish your new year’s resolutions, realize that you are not alone! Set out to find a community with similar goals, or a person or two who will motivate you to achieve them! And remember, setbacks can and will happen, but you have the control to own it and move on.
We hope these tips helped you follow through your resolutions to make 2020 the best year yet!
