We all make New Year’s resolutions with the turn of the calendar year, but keeping them can present a challenge. Make your New Year’s resolutions stick, and implement some tried and true strategies to make 2019 a successful year.
- Begin with a step. Rather than attempting a massive change instantaneously, take your time and start with a small, meaningful step in the right direction. If you are committing to a driving-related change like decreasing your fuel consumption, try something small like coasting down a hill for a day. Following through with mall baby steps will uphold your resolution and ensure you are on the path to long-term success.
- Be vocal about your goals, and ask for help when you need it. Keeping your resolutions demands accountability. Share your objectives with your family members and friends, updating them on your progress. If you need support or are struggling, talk to someone who will listen and provide meaningful feedback.
- Reward progress, and be forgiving. A transformation doesn’t happen overnight, so reward incremental progress and be forgiving toward yourself if you slip up. Beating yourself up will not help you keep your resolutions. Instead, reflect on what knocked you off track, and think of what small changes you can make to get back on track.
