Learn How to Make a Great New Year’s Resolution at Dahlgren – And Make It Last Past January 1st!
January 4, 2016
It’s never easy to make a New Year’s resolution. While some people overestimate things and aim for something that’s impossible to achieve, others get nervous and give up after the first few days. Here are some foolproof tips not to help you create the perfect resolution, they’ll even motivate you to stick with your goals.
- Choose something you want to do. If you already have the motivation to diet, travel or go for that dream job, it will be much easier to convince yourself to put in the work.
- Limit yourself. Instead of choosing three or four resolutions, pick just one thing that will impact your life in a big way.
- Map out a plan. Before the New Year rolls around, map out a plan for how you’ll put your resolution into effect. This will help you to get started immediately following the festivities.
- Share it with others. To hold yourself accountable for your resolution, start talking about it with other people. While you may not mind letting yourself down, it’s a lot more difficult to face your friends and family if you give up on your goals.
