Every year, about 40% of adults in America set at least one resolution that they hope will change their life in some way. However, after about six months, nearly 60% of those people have already given up. So, how do you achieve your New Year’s resolutions? You follow these four steps.
- Focus on actions. Instead of thinking, “I want to lose 20 pounds,” focus on working to be healthier by watching what you eat and planning workouts.
- Make realistic goals. While we all have an ideal image of what we would like to be in our minds, it is unrealistic for most people. Set a goal that you can actually reach. So, plan to save $100 a month instead of $500, for example.
- Think positively. Have a positive outlook for your goals. In addition, have a plan for certain obstacles. Like, if you are trying to save money, when your friends ask you to go out, invite them to a potluck at your house instead.
- Get support. Talk to friends and family about your goals. You might find others with similar resolutions. You can work together to motivate each other and get some accountability.
