A recent study revealed that most people are not able to keep their New Year resolutions for more than a week. Are you one of them? If you're tired of not being able to stick to your resolutions, here are some tips.
1 Be specific:
Resolve to not just ‘lose weight’ but more specifically, say ‘10 kilos in 4 months’. Also, go one by one with the goals. This way, it’ll be easier to achieve them.
2 Regular review:
Write down your resolution and post it in a place, where other people can see it. If your resolution is buzzing through your head, it’s easier to stick to it. Also, keep monitoring your success every few days.
3 Seek help:
Ask for help when it is getting difficult to stick to your resolution. If a family member or friend has a similar goal, work
on it together.
4 Immediate action:
Fix a date and start henceforth. Don’t tell yourself that it is the last time. Also, steer clear of people who are likely to encourage resolution-breaking.
5 Reward yourself:
Set small-term goals and start rewarding yourself with a small splurge at each significant step in achieving your goal.
