Yes, you can! Learn how to actually keep those New Year Resolutions
We’ve all been there. It’s so easy to get carried away by the promise of a clean slate and jump into the new year with a running start … only to burn out by February. Whether you are hoping to spruce up and organize your home, get healthy, save money or learn something new, the key to success is in your approach.
Here are the top steps to ensure you’ll be keeping those resolutions in check all year round
You are making solutions for yourself, not for anyone else’s approval. Run your own race, wear your own clothes, and stay away comparisons.
Use the 10-minute rule.
Let setbacks fuel your motivation.
Resolutions have this funny way of overwhelming us before we even begin. Instead of trying to find large chunks of time to devote to your goal, take a few moments now and list as many resolution-related tasks as you can think of that can be accomplished in 10 minutes or less. Making a phone call, checking a website, sending an email and doing a few sets of crunches all would fit in that time frame.
Secure an accountability partner.
Choose a buddy to walk through this path to success (that means be sure you secure an accountability partner—trainer, health coach, friend, neighbor, cousin) and gamify your plan. Consider writing a check to each other that can be cashed if you, or she/he, don’t meet your intentions on any given day.
Finally, everyone has a day now and then when the best plans don’t get executed. Don’t focus on setback, but rather on the comeback. There may be good value in a step back to move forward with more fuel, once again.
