New Years Day is a cherished holiday celebrated by thousands of people around the world. It’s a known tradition to come up with a resolution and stick to it. A resolution is like a goal that you wish to achieve in the new year. But most of the time, people have trouble abiding by their New Year’s resolutions. This article will provide you with three simple suggestions that can help you accomplish your New Year’s resolution!
1. Make sure you like your resolution!
Usually, people’s resolutions are things that will make them a better person, but they might not have the will power to complete them. If you want to accomplish your New Year’s resolution, I suggest picking something that you would enjoy. Studies show that if you enjoy something, you are more likely to be motivated to do it.
Let’s say my general goal was to be healthier. I could eat healthier, be more active, or both! However, if I chose to eat less mac n’ cheese, I wouldn’t be motivated to complete that task. In contrast, if I made my goal to create a workout schedule and follow it throughout the year, I would be more inspired to do it. This is because I would enjoy exercising more than eating less mac n’ cheese.
2. Set a timer(s)
Setting a timer can help with hundreds of things. In this circumstance, setting a timer will help remind you to work on your resolution. Sometimes, more than one timer is necessary. I learned this from my sister, who sets multiple timers so that when she dismisses one, another one will alarm. This would continue until she had to wake up. Overall, you know how many timers you might dismiss, but to start I would recommend using three to five timers as reminders.
3. Ask someone to support you while you are completing your resolution!
Sometimes we just need another friend to support us. For example, I might work out more effectively if I have my brother alongside me. He will not only support me, but push me to achieve higher goals.
If you’re having trouble finding a partner to help you complete your resolution, no worries! The other two tactics help immensely!
I hope you enjoyed this article and will take at least one of these suggestions into account when you begin to work on your New Year’s resolution. Oh, and I almost forgot, Happy New Year!
