If you are one of the many people who make New Year’s resolutions only to fail at them within a few months, you should consider trying a new strategy. Follow these tips to help make your resolution last beyond the winter season.
One reason you may have trouble accomplishing your New Year’s resolution is that it’s too difficult for you to actually incorporate in your life. Make your resolution more attainable and aim to change just one behavior or habit. For example, instead of setting a goal to diet and exercise each day, set out to exercise two or three times a week.
Make your intentions known
It can be easier to stick to a resolution if you have people in your life that can hold you accountable. Share your goals with friends or family or become a member of a group that’s working towards similar goals.
Don’t be hard on yourself
Even with smaller, more realistic goals, there will likely come a point in the year where you can’t manage to keep your resolution. Instead of being upset and giving up on the resolution entirely, accept that everyone makes mistakes and return to chasing your goals.
