New Year, New You: How to Make Your Resolutions Last

It’s the last day of 2015 and many of you might have made some New Year’s resolutions. While we all have the best intentions of following through with them, it’s easy to lose sight of your goals so I put together a list of handy tricks and tips to help make your resolutions last all the way through December 31st 2016…

5 Tips to Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Last
1 Make measurable resolutions. Your resolutions should be easy to measure and attain. That way you can keep better track of your progress. When you make vague resolutions like, “Be fearless!” they end up being grandiose statements, which don’t do you much good.
2 Write them down! Things feel more official when you make a tangible list. You will feel more committed to them once they’re written down, too.
3 Review them. Keep your resolutions somewhere where you can see them on a daily basis. Last night I made my 2016 resolution list and hung it on the wall in my office right in from of my computer so I see it every day for daily inspiration. The reason being that it’s important to go back and reread your resolutions and consider the different ways you can achieve them.
4 Make milestones. It’s a good idea to write down the big goal, and then write down all the little goals that will be milestones in helping me reach the large one. Checking off the little milestones shows me that while I may not have reached the large goal yet, I have made some progress toward it.”
5 Make an inspiration board. If you’re a visual person, this is a great idea. Making an inspiration board is an excellent way to keep you motivated. Include clippings of places you wants to go, clothing you wants to buy and the number of the size you need to get in shape to fit into those clothes. Also add motivational quotes and sayings on sticky notes to it so every day when you wake up you will see that certain quote that will motivate you to do a certain something that day.
