How To Stick To Your New Year’s Resolution

We have all made New Year’s resolutions. We make them with the full intention of fulfilling them.

But, for one reason or the other one excuse or the other, the new work out program or the promise to quit smoking is abandoned by the end of the first week of the New Year. The major reason for this is that we over-inflate our goals to a point where they aren’t realistically attainable!

Shift thinking

Rather than making a resolution to lose 30 pounds by Valentine’s Day, make a commitment to take a walk during your lunch break, or to cut back on the amount of sugar you put in your coffee or even removing soda from you life one day a week and slowly increase each goal as you become comfortable with the new change.

Before you know it, you will not only have achieved your goal, but you will have developed a new lifestyle with far less effort and stress than an overly ambitious resolution. Think about it, what’s your end goal? What is the one small thing you can fold into your life that will get you into that swimsuit or help you spend more time with your family or allow you to run that marathon by summer?

Start with that and take it one day at a time.

You will be surprised how far you go!

Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Kimberly! My resolution is to start a business. I hesitated in the past because my divorce was not finalized, so on December 31st I went to the court house and filed the papers. Going into the new year knowing there are no obstacles holding me back and relinquishing myself of my one excuse, I know I’ll get it started in 2015. Thanks and I love all your post!

    This is My 1st New Year’s Resolution: As a dreamer, I’m always thinking long and hard about the end result…and then baulking at the actual task at hand. So, this is year I’m switching it up a bit. I want to go to Paris (never been to Europe)! I’ve made myself a promise…Pray to God all the details, and seriously look for Him to assist in implementing my dream into reality. My Resolution is: there is no other objective. Pray with me, and I’ll send a photo when I get there 🙂 2015 is my year! Letitia
