If you are like many others, the first few days of the New Year will probably inspire you to make some important resolutions that could improve the quality of your life. That is — if you can stay inspired. Unfortunately, making resolutions is always the easy part. It’s following through that can be difficult. But there are ways to significantly improve the chances of reaching your goals, including the following five tips.
SET REALISTIC GOALS
Small successes will help keep you motivated and encourage you to continue pursuing your goals. There is no harm in setting a big goal, however, make sure that you use smaller achievements to pave the way.
MAKE IT CONVENIENT
If your resolution is, for example, to exercise more often, find an activity or a gym that is close to your work. Or if you’re planning on moving, find an apartment community with an onsite gym or other exercise facilities. You’re have fewer excuses to skip a workout if your exercise facilities are nearby.
It’s very likely that at some point you will mess up during your journey to a better you. Perhaps, you’ll overeat at a party. That doesn’t mean that you ditch your diet. Instead, resolve to start fresh in the morning.
CREATE A VISION BOARD
Make a collage of images that represent the goals you want to achieve in the coming year. You can do this the old-fashioned way by cutting out pictures and gluing them on a piece of cardboard. Or you can create a screensaver collage for your computer. Let these images remind you every day of the person you want to be or the life you want to be living.
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT
In these digital times, it’s easy to find an app for just about every resolution you can make. Need help saving money? There are apps that will help you track your spending. Want to run a 10K? There are training apps for that, as well.
