3 Easy Tips To Help You Stick To Your New Year's Resolutions In 2022
At the start of each New Year, the majority of us enter with the mindset of new year, new me, right? This mindset is followed by a long list of goals that we set ourselves to achieve by the end of the year. But by the end of the first week of the year, you may already have fallen off track because we often set ourselves unrealistic goals or just too many goals that are difficult to maintain altogether. So here are three tips we have put together that will give you a better chance of staying on track with your goals.
Be realistic and plan your goals carefully
It is important that the resolutions you set are realistic and attainable, otherwise you are just setting yourself up for failure. For instance, if you want to start going to the gym on a weekly basis, make sure you are able to schedule an appropriate time for this to happen and make the necessary adjustments in your weekly schedule to make sure you are able to always find the time for the gym and be consistent with it. At the same time, you should not allow yourself to feel pressured to always find time for your goals. Maybe you have a one off commitment which requires you to reschedule your time for the gym. Just make sure when it is time to get back to routine you are not slacking!
Make your resolutions fun
If the goals you set aren’t something you will look forward to, you will begin to resent them. It is guaranteed that you will fall off track! A good way to keep your goals fun is to incorporate rewards. Each month you could treat yourself to something, but only if you have been consistent and on track with your resolutions. Who doesn’t love a treat?
Work on your goals with a friend
If it is accountability you struggle with, what better way to stick to your resolutions than to have close friends help keep you accountable? Pair up with a friend and check in on each other to see how you’re doing with your goals and keep each other motivated. If you can’t find a friend to work with, another option would be to keep a journal; note down your progress and refer back to the journal when you’re feeling unmotivated.
