The New Year is all about a fresh start with your best foot forward. Though while it’s simple to resolve to make sweeping changes in your life come Jan. 1, sticking with those resolutions month after month is another story. These helpful tips for keeping your New Year’s resolutions should make your task a bit easier to handle, putting you in a good place to enter 2021 on top of your game.
One at a time
It would be great to make all of your personal and professional life changes all at once, but experts agree that it’s much more of a viable option to implement big changes one at a time. Consider making a timeline and staggering your New Year’s resolutions this year.
One of the main reasons we give up on resolutions is that we get discouraged when we don’t immediately get the results we want. But if we start small, it’s much easier to achieve the goals we’ve set and push forward. If you set your sights small, you can celebrate your success and stay motivated without losing sight of your long-term plan.
Go easy on yourself
Sometimes New Year’s resolutions take a bit of tough love, but that doesn’t mean you need to be too hard on yourself. New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t cause you anxiety but should motivate you to be the best you can — not perfect. If your goal is to lose weight and you have a day where you go off the wagon, don’t give up — just use it as motivation to get back on the bike and ride harder.
While you’re by all means your best advocate, getting backup from people who matter can mean a lot. Tell your friends and family what your goals are and ask them to hold you accountable. They’ll help lift you up when you need it and can be the thing that gets you pushing forward when you feel like you’ve plateaued.
