Keep all your resolutions in 2018!

The New Year is almost here!  This means that it’s time to start making resolutions that you’d like to keep in 2018.  If you’ve struggled to stay motivated and reach your goals in the past, make this year different.  Employ these strategies to help you keep all your New Year’s resolutions.

1) Be Reasonable

While it’s great to push yourself to be the best you can be, everyone has limits.  That’s why it’s important to be reasonable when setting your resolutions.  Understanding your abilities and limitations will prevent you from setting unattainable goals.  Choose goals that will push you while still being achievable.  This will ensure that your hard work isn’t met with disappointment.

2) Be Specific

When you set a vague resolution for yourself, it’s easy to brush it off or forget about it.  To avoid this, be very specific about the goals you wish to accomplish this year.  For instance, instead of simply saying you want to exercise more, state how many times a week you will go to the gym.  Additionally, go the extra mile by blocking out time for you to workout.  This will make it impossible to make excuses for yourself.

3) Set Short Term Goals

While you might have one big goal you wish to reach by the end of 2018, don’t make this your only aim.  Instead, set little goals that will help you achieve your bigger aim.  Every time you complete one of your short-term goals, you will be motivated by your progress and will stay dedicated to achieving your big goal.

4) Tell Others

Finally, a great way to stay motivated is by sharing your resolutions with others.  If you know that there are people watching you and holding you accountable, you will be far more likely to reach your goals.  Additionally, having the support and encouragement from loved ones will also help you stay motivated as you work towards your goals.
