New Year's Resolutions
New Year's resolutions are notoriously hard to keep. Here are some tips to help you get there!
1. Add something instead of subtracting something.
Instead of saying you'll stop eating too much ice cream, try saying you'll start eating more vegetables.
2. Write it down
It's a lot harder to let go of something if you've committed it to paper. You can also use this as a visible reminder for when you feel like breaking it!
3. Stay simple
If a goal is too complex, you're going to be intimidated by it. If it's something simple, you won't be scared to start and it'll be easier to keep up.
4. Recruit help
You don't have to do this alone! Chances are you have someone in your life who wants to do the same thing.
5. Slow and steady
You don't have to dive into the deep end right away. Start slowly and give yourself time to grown.
5. Tell a friend
Even more than writing it down, telling someone else what your goals are can make them more real. That way you have a bit of accountability to keep you honest, too.
6. Take it one step at a time
Every building is laid one brick at a time. Don't feel like you need to achieve 5 steps at once.
7. Reward yourself
You're doing something hard! Recognize that and give yourself the opportunity to celebrate!
