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.
