How to Stick to Your New Years Resolutions
When it comes to New Years Resolutions, there are two types of people: the ones that hate them and believe if you want to change something you shouldn’t wait until January first and then there are the people who love them and make them every year. I happen to enjoy making New Years resolutions, even if I rarely stick to them. My problem is my goals and resolutions change so much throughout the year. What I want at the beginning is not what I want during the middle of the year. Either way, I do like the idea of a fresh start and it is somewhat motivating. There have been a few resolutions I’ve stuck with throughout the years and that’s what this is about–how to stick to your New Years resolutions.

Commit to Your Resolutions
If your goal is to lose weight, commit to it. Go get yourself a scale, a food scale, workout clothes or whatever makes you excited about your goal. If your goal is to save money, print out a nice tracker or make your own. Get excited to reach small goals each month. Then, when you reach your goal, treat yourself. You don’t have to spend money to treat yourself either. Try having a diy spa day or spending the day with your friends.
Invest in Your Resolutions
This goes hand-in-hand with the first one. Go all in on your resolutions (make sure they’re things you really want) and invest in them. If your goal is to drink more water, go out and buy a nice water bottle. Want to run more? Then go get a nice outfit and a good pair of running shoes. You’re more likely to stick with something you’ve invested money into.
Make Small Goals
This is especially helpful if you’re like me and halfway through the year forget all about the resolutions you’ve made. Instead of making one big goal to work at throughout the year, try making small monthly goals instead. That way, you only have to focus on one goal for that month. Say you have an overall goal of being healthier. Split that into monthly goals that will come together to fulfill your main goal. One month could be spent focusing on your water intake and the next month getting active, etc.
Those are some of the ways I’ve found I’ve been able to stick to goals I’ve made. If you try any of these, be sure to let me know if it helped. Also, let me know any ways you’ve been able to stick to your resolutions. Talk to you in my next post! xx
