How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

keep your New Year’s resolution

Every year, millions of American set New Year’s resolutions and then quickly abandon them. If 2019 is going to be your year for success, then you’ll want to follow a few handy tips to help you keep your New Year’s resolution.

Set Small Goals

Setting a goal that seems a million miles away can leave you feeling daunted. Instead, start small. If you want to buy a new car, make a goal to put $50 from each paycheck into a savings account. If you want to eat healthier, replace a sweet treat with a piece of fruit or cup of yogurt and build from there.

Take One Step at a Time

If you try overhauling all of your bad habits at once, you will easily become overwhelmed. Focus on one habit at a time and replace unhealthy behaviors with healthy ones.

Get Support

Talk to your friends and family about your goals. You might find someone with the same or similar goals. You can work together and check on each other’s progress to help you stay focused on your goal.

Forgive Yourself

Just because you make one mistake, that does not mean you have failed. It is normal to have backtracks and missteps while working towards your goal. Brush off your mistakes and focus yourself again.

Manageable New Year’s Resolutions

Manageable New Year’s Resolutions

Every year, millions of American make New Year’s resolutions and then quickly bail on them by February. If this sounds like you every year, try some of these manageable New Year’s resolutions from the New York Post that you can actually keep.

  1. Avoid toxic relationships. If there are certain people in your life who give you stress and make you feel overwhelmed every time you see them, try paring down or eliminating this relationship. If it is a person who you can’t remove from your life like a family member or co-worker, do what you can to avoid confrontation.
  2. Spice up your lunch routine. Do you go to the same lunch spots every week? This year, commit to trying someplace new once a week or packing your lunch.
  3. Stop watching bad TV. Just because a show is popular that doesn’t you have to watch it. Pare down your DVR or Netflix watchlist. Cut out three shows you don’t really like and add something new and exciting.
  4. Exercise once a week. If you always make the goal of getting in shape, but always fail, it may be because your goal is too big. Instead, try committing to exercising once a week in an organized class. Once you get in the habit of this, you might find other things in your life start changing, too.
