Successful New Year’s Resolutions

January 1, 2019

Often, we make New Year’s resolutions that look great on paper, but can be difficult to achieve. That’s because we tend to aim big, making the goals unattainable. Consider these examples so that you can downsize your resolutions and make them more realistic.

– Rather than telling yourself to go to the gym five times a week, lower your expectations. Go for a walk every other day, and add extra activities as you progress.

– Instead of tackling organizational projects all at once, take on one small space at a time. Begin with the cluttered junk drawer before approaching the overstuffed hall closet, for instance.

– Connecting with others and getting more engaged is a tremendous objective, but overbooking yourself and joining tons of new clubs and activities will have you overwhelmed. Take a different approach by reaching out to one person every day for a conversation. As the year goes on, you may find that you seek out additional social opportunities, as they feel comfortable to you.

Whatever your New Year’s resolution may be, follow these examples and the idea of starting small, and success will surely be yours in the year ahead.
