Making New Year’s Resolutions You’ll Actually Keep

Making New Year’s Resolutions You’ll Actually Keep

With the year coming to a close, it’s time to reflect back and think about setting goals for the next one. While it’s a time-honored tradition to make New Year’s resolutions every year, studies actually show that 80% of people give up by February. For some, the hecticness of life simply gets in the way of carving out the time needed to achieve these goals. For others, the goals set are simply unrealistic. So, with the dismal success rate for sticking to resolutions and all of the challenges between you and success – how can you set New Year’s resolutions this year that you will actually keep?

 

Let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons why New Year’s resolutions fail, and what steps you can take to set better ones that will help you have a happier and healthier year ahead: 

 

Going “Too Big”. Yes, it’s important to have big dreams and to never give up on them. But, big dreams require a lifetime commitment that spans well beyond a single year. So, instead of making your resolution something like, “quit my job and write a best-selling novel”, think about things you can do over the course of the year that will help move you closer to that big dream. Using this example, your resolution could be something like, “create a financial plan that would allow me to take time off of work to start writing by March” or “make a list of part-time jobs that appeal to me where I could make time to start writing by the end of February”. From there, you can map out other milestones to hit throughout the year that will bring you closer to that big dream.
 
Being Too Vague & Not Setting Timelines. How many people tell you that their New Year’s Resolution is “to lose weight”? While it’s great to prioritize your wellness by maintaining a healthy weight, this type of resolution is pretty vague, making it all too easy to give up on it within a couple of weeks. If you want to drop some pounds in the New Year, why not think about this in terms of your overall health and wellness, versus a certain number of pounds, and set time-specific goals accordingly? Here you could change your resolution to, “start my new diet and exercise plan the second week of January and track my progress weekly to see what’s working; integrate my new plan seamlessly into my lifestyle by the first week of March.” This approach is more focused on improving your health versus counting pounds on the scale– making it much easier to stick to the resolution.
 
Not Prioritizing Self-Care. For those who are already struggling to find any downtime between work, family, and friends, setting New Year’s resolutions can be a source of stress and anxiety. If this sounds like you, why not change your approach to your resolution and make it all about taking better care of yourself?  Some resolutions you can take on include committing to daily meditation in the morning, carving out 2-3 hours a week to read, or starting to say “no” to every single invitation so you have more time for yourself. And, don’t fall into the trap of feeling that this is selfish; remember that self-care can help balance your mind, body, and spirit, which means that you will be in a better position to take care of everyone around you and all of the items on your To-Do list.

 

Now that you know some of the New Year’s resolutions pitfalls to avoid, it’s time to think about what you want to accomplish in the coming year.
