At the end of each year, everybody sets a resolution or multiple ones: I want to lose weight, I want to find a job, I want to find the love of my life. Most of the times, the resolutions that we set are too big and unrealistic that, by the end of the year, we forget it and we don’t accomplish anything.
Do you want to know how to stick to your New Year’s resolution? Follow these 5 simple advice before setting your resolution:
1. SMALL GOALS
Start simple. Don’t set goals that feel impossible to realize the minute after you said it. Losing weight is a huge goal, amazing and awesome but can be overwhelming. For example, if you want to lose weight why don’t you start signing up at a gym, or have a consult with a health coach, or attend a yoga class. Start small to reach the top. Think day by day, week by week, month by month. Don’t think already at the end of it, organize the process.
2. ASK YOURSELF WHY
Yeah, it may sound stupid but ask yourself why do you really want to change something in your life. What’s the real reason why you want to find a new job, why do you want to lose those 5 kilos that nobody sees but you? Ask yourself the WHY behind your New Year’s resolution, find that why and your resolution will be way easier to achieve.
3. KEEP IT REAL
I mean, I definitely don’t want to destroy people’s dreams like going to the Maldives, or traveling the world. But keep your resolution real. Don’t waste your time with resolutions that you don’t believe in.
4. FIND AN ACCOUNTABILITY BUDDY
Like for my health coach training, I have found an awesome accountability buddy that keeps me grounded. You too need to find someone who shares your goal so that you can support each other to make it thru the new year. Find somebody like-minded, that you know is going to push you thru the limit. Don’t waste your time with people that don’t feel right. Choose wisely.
5. PUT REMINDERS EVERYWHERE
Change the save screen of your phone or laptop. Set daily reminders. Attach post its in the places that you are most likely to fall off the wagon of your resolution. See it, and you’ll do it.
Be simple, don’t overwhelm yourself and make yourself accountable. Remember why you are doing it. Do it for yourself, take care of yourself and 2019 will take care of you too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
