New Year’s resolutions can be a great way to set goals and make positive changes in our lives.
However, it’s no secret that these resolutions often fail.
According to a survey conducted by the University of Scranton, only 8% of people actually achieve their New Year’s resolutions.
If you’re someone who has struggled to stick with them in the past, don’t despair. Here are some tips for making your resolutions stick this year:
- Set realistic goals: It’s important to aim high and challenge ourselves, but if our goals are too ambitious or unattainable, it can be disheartening and lead to the feeling of failure. Instead, try setting goals that are achievable, but still require effort and dedication.
- Make small, gradual changes: Instead of trying to overhaul your entire lifestyle overnight, try making small, incremental changes. This can make the process feel less overwhelming and increase chances of success.
- Seek support and accountability: Having a support system or accountability partner can help keep you on track and motivated. Consider joining a group or finding a coach to keep you accountable and moving forward.
- Have a plan in place for setbacks: It’s inevitable that we will encounter challenges and setbacks along the way. Having a plan in place for how to handle these setbacks can help us stay on track and not give up on our resolutions.
- Choose resolutions that are meaningful and important to you: If you’re not truly invested in your goals, it’s easy to lose motivation and give up when things get tough. By choosing resolutions that are meaningful and important to you, you’ll be more likely to stick with them.
Use these tips to help increase your chances of sticking to your New Year’s resolutions and making positive changes in your life for 2023!
