What is a New Year’s Resolution?

It’s a promise you make to yourself to change bad habits and establish new routines. Some time people make resolutions about stopping a behavior. “This year I am going to stop staying up late. I’m going to go to bed earlier.” Sometimes people make resolutions about beginning a behavior. The most common resolution that is made every year is “I’m going to lose weight.”

Resolutions are easier to make than to keep. By the end of March many resolutions are abandoned, and we settle back into our old habits.

Here are some tips for actually keeping your New Year’s Resolution

  • Focus on one goal at a time
  • Put some time into planning your resolution. Don’t Pick something at the last moment.
  • Start with small steps. Taking on too much too quickly

Is a common reason people fail.

  • Avoid repeating past failures. Why didn’t it work out before.
  • Remember that change is a process. Be patient with yourself.
  • Use the buddy system. Work with a friend to support each other. Tell others about your goals and ask them to help you succeed.
