STAY MOTIVATED! 3 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

|

It’s the start of a new year, which makes for an excellent time to set some goals and resolutions for yourself. While it can be easy to stray from your resolutions, we’re here to tell you – stick with it! Stay motivated with these three ways to keep your New Year’s resolutions.

Set Achievable Goals

There’s nothing worse than setting yourself up for failure. When you’re thinking about what goals you’d like to achieve this year, make sure they are within reach and not something that would be incredibly hard to achieve. For example, if you have a busy schedule with hardly any free time to spare, setting a goal to “read a book for 30 minutes each day” might not come easy. When it comes to goal setting, follow the SMART way – specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely. If your goal does not follow through with those adjectives, it’s time to reassess.

Start Small

We have all made a lofty resolution, only to falter on day three and then completely fall off and not work toward it at all. Stick with smaller resolutions that you can actually attain. So instead of “lose 20 pounds,” make it a goal that you can pencil in, like “exercise for 30 minutes, 3-4 times a week.” Or if you’re trying to “get organized,” narrow it down to “clean out one area of the house, twice a week.” With these smaller, more attainable goals that are broken down each week with padding built-in, you’ll then stay more motivated to stick with them, since they are achievable.

Manifest Your Goals

If you believe it, it will come true! Okay, maybe it doesn’t work quite like that. But truly, if you believe in yourself and give yourself the love you deserve by sticking with your goals, you’re more likely to commit. Write your goals down in a manifestation journal, and refer back to them often. You may even choose to write updates on how the process of reaching your goals is going. Honest reflection can be good for the soul, and help you see more clearly what it is that’s either helping or hindering your goal setting.

Creating resolutions and goals is a form of self-care. Make the time and better yourself with these three ways to keep your New Year’s resolutions. For more healthy habit ideas, check out The Point at Town Center’s blog.
