HOW TO WRITE NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AND STICK TO THEM.

New Year Resolutions
End of the year is time for our accomplishments review. It is time to see what we achieved, what is in progress and what wasn’t touched at all. It is time to create NEW RESOLUTIONS and hope they will last through entire 2018th year. There are skeptics thinking that it is a waste of time and resolutions are useless. I personally see them as a must for every single person wishing to improve their lifestyle. I advice to think about it this way: if we plan and write down a shopping list for a grocery store why wouldn’t we sit and plan a next year of our own lives?!

I see New Year Resolutions as a perfect approach for those who usually say they will start doing something next week, next month, or perhaps when the summer ends.  
Today I will share a “how to write new year resolutions” together with a “how to stick to my new year’s resolutions” tips.

New Year Resolutions

Let’s sit down and prepare a list of important life style changes and goals as well as try to stick to them.

  1. Where to start? Write a list of everything you need and a list of everything you want. Then divide it to less and more. Keep only what you really want to do. Stick to it.
  2. Understand that your new year resolutions list is not a wish list for a “golden fish”. These are the things you are planning to achieve YOURSELF!
  3. Make your resolutions specific and measurable, then you are more likely to achieve them.
  4. What to avoid? Don’t set barriers of any kind for yourself.  “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” — C.S. Lewis
  5. Re-read your resolutions at least ones per week and add new ones (if they appear) throughout the year. Visualize achieving your resolutions as you read.
  6. Remember, that establishing new habit is hard. You may break main goal in baby goals and celebrate when each of them is achieved.
  7. Thus, transform your new year resolutions in a lifestyle. It requires a certain amount of discipline, but it is doable. Don’t get overwhelmed, work toward changing one big thing at a time.
  8. Start Now and don’t stop! Resolutions require incredible willpower to achieve. We all know that start is usually filled with lots of excitement, middle often lacks motivation and brings more and more “cheat days” with excuses into play. Below is the list of ideas to stay motivated:
  • Post it Notes
  • Vision Board
  • Reminders on a cell phone
  • Track your progress
  • Celebrate your success
  • Be positive
