No need to stress out making New Year’s resolutions – we’ve got some simple goal-setting tips for you!
It’s that time of year again…time to make those darn New Year’s resolutions… with good intentions, of course, that they’ll stick! Read on for some advice and simple goal-setting tips for making New Year’s resolutions work to your advantage.
You just got done with your holiday list, so why beat yourself up trying to make a New Year’s resolutions list? Wait until all (yes, all) of your holiday decorations are packed up and stored away, and the kids are back in school, to take a quiet moment to yourself and really think about what you want to accomplish in 2020.
When you think about the past year, were there things you wanted to do but didn’t? Were there things you did and would like to do more of? Grab a notepad and pen and write down some of these things. I’m sure you’ll be smiling when you think back to the great memories you have from 2019! And, you’ll also be looking toward the future positively and realistically, thinking about what lies ahead of you!
If you can incorporate realistic behavioral changes into your everyday life, and change them throughout the year (with our without some bumps in the road, and not in the very first month of the year), your resolutions are bound to stick!
