Smart Tips for Making A New Years Resolution You Can Keep

Smart Tips for Making A New Years Resolution You Can Keep

The start of a new year is the perfect time to turn a new page, which is why so many people make New Year’s resolutions. The turn of the year feels like a fresh start and a great opportunity to change bad habits and establish new routines that will help you be your best you.  Here’s how to identify the right resolution to improve your life, create a plan on how to reach it, and successfully stay on track throughout the year.

Resolutions fail because they’re not the right resolutions.  Your goals should be S-M-A-R-T.  



Make concrete and clear goals like:  How much weight do you want to lose and at what time interval?  Five pounds in the next two months.



Log progress into a journal, a whiteboard or take notes on your phone to reinforce the progress, no matter what your resolution may be.  This will reinforce your behaviour and keep you accountable.



Think big, but remember to break down these steps into smaller achievable goals.   Focus on these small wins so you can make gradual progress. 



Is this a goal that really matters to you, and are you making it for the right reasons?  Good planning should be about self-love.



Give yourself enough time to succeed and have an end-date in mind.  Don’t forget to reward yourself when you reach your goals!



Join the small group of people who successfully achieve their goals this season.  Be patient and gentle with yourself, and remember to see the learning opportunity in setbacks.  The path toward your goal is not always a straight one, and there will often be challenges along the way.  Always move forward, and 2022 will be your most successful year to date.
