Setting And Keeping New Year’s Resolutions/Goals


Sure, we can all set most of these goals, but how do we keep them? According to www.verywellmind.com, here are a few ways to help you stick to your resolutions/goals in the new year.


Limit Your Resolutions: Work on one small goal at a time.

Put Time Into Planning: Don’t decide on goals at the last minute, put some thought into each of them.

Start With Small Steps: Don’t do too much at once and overwhelm yourself. Small steps can help you reach a larger goal.

Avoid Repeating Past Failures: Don’t make the same resolutions over and over each year that haven’t succeeded in the past.

Remember That Change Is a Process: It may take longer than you would like to achieve a goal, but it’s not a race.

Get Support: Let family and/or friends know your goal(s), or join a group that shares your goal(s).

Learn and Adapt: If you encounter a setback, don’t give up, most people face challenges along the way.
