It’s that time again! A fresh batch of new year’s resolutions you are making.
Whether it be eating more veggies, volunteering or heading to the gym every day, most resolutions are given up withing the first month.
This year, before your resolutions fly right out the window, let’s try a different approach. Start small, be realistic, and break down the big, daunting tasks into more manageable ones.
To give you an example, we’ve got some tips from ReachOut Magazine to help you stick to some of the most common new year’s resolutions.
1. To Enjoy Life More…
We all like to have fun and enjoy ourselves. But what does it actually mean when we say we want to enjoy life more? This is one of the vaguest resolutions we make.
Instead, be more specific. Does it mean taking more trips? Does it mean hanging out with your friends more often? Be very clear about exactly what you want to do, and then you can figure out what you have to do to follow through.
2. To Eat Better and Exercise More…
Let’s be realistic: you’re probably not going to go to the gym every day and eat only vegetables. That setting the bar too high and unnecessary. Set yourself up for success.
Start with one trip to the gym, or walking every now and then instead of always taking the bus.
As far as your diet goes just try to maintain a healthy balance.
3. To Learn Something New…
Trying new things and learning new skills is great, but let’s not try to learn everything at once. Choose one thing, and follow through on it.
Set aside some time each week to work on your new hobby, and remember that learning something new is a gradual process.
4. To Quit Smoking…
So, you want to quit smoking? That’s great; hats off to you! There are lots of ways to go about it. Put systems in place that will work for you and help you give this habit the flick.
It often takes a while to quit successfully, so don’t feel too bad if your first attempts don’t work; just stick at it.
5. To Manage Money Better…
It can be hard to keep tabs on your money situation, especially over the holiday season. One minute it’s there, the next it’s gone.
This year, put in place some practical measures to help you keep a closer eye on your money. There are many free apps that can help you budget and manage your spending. Your bank might even have one.
