8 Tips To Help You Stick To Your New Year’s Resolutions

At the end of every year we promise ourselves that we’ll stick to our New Year’s resolutions no matter what and new year 2020 is just around the corner…but then January comes around and our resolve fizzles out. The next year, we do the same. Then the year after that, the same again. And again. If this accurately sums up your attempt at sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, you could probably do with some tips on sticking to them – here are some useful ones that are sure to improve your chances of sticking to your resolutions and getting things done.

  1. Fewer, not more

It’s better for you to focus your energy on a smaller number of resolutions. Set yourself too many and you’re spreading yourself too thin. It’s better for you to achieve a smaller number of resolutions rather than fail to achieve a larger number of them.

2. Realistic goals

Any resolution you make has got to be realistic. While it’s fine to be ambitious, there’s a line between being realistic and being too ambitious. Don’t cross that line. Make your resolutions realistic and you’ve got more of a chance of seeing them through.

3. Unique resolutions

Don’t just pick resolutions that everyone else is picking. Focus on ones that are specific to you, i.e. what you want to achieve, not what everyone else does. Think about what you want in and from your life and set your resolutions accordingly.

4. Steps

Break your goal, whatever it is, down into manageable short-term goals. Focus on achieving each smaller goal one at a time. You’ll be more motivated to reach your ultimate goal as your smaller achievements will give you motivation boosts along the way.

5. Rewards

Give yourself regular rewards for completing each step of your goal. You’ll feel a sense of achievement for having completed the step and will be motivated by rewards to complete more steps.

6. Benefits

via Greatist.com

Make a list of how achieving your goal will benefit you both as you work towards it and once you’ve actually achieved it. If you ever lack motivation, consult your list and remind yourself of the benefits your goal can bring.

7. Sharing

via Theparislife.org

Share your resolutions with those closest to you. You’ll have a support network, with people there to encourage you and help you if you lose motivation.

8. Not giving up

Tell yourself that you shouldn’t give up on this no matter what. Even if you have any sort of setback, just see it as a temporary break and tell yourself you’ll get back on track soon enough.
