The new year is coming up quickly, so you know what that means: it's about that time when people make new year's resolutions only to abandon them before the new month is even over. But worry not, here are some small and easy ways you can make your new year's resolutions stick.
Know what you want
What is it exactly that you want? Setting clear goals is the first step if you want to achieve your new year's resolutions.
Understand the why
Understanding the reason behind your resolutions makes it easier for you to remain committed to them, even when the going gets tough.
Make a plan
It is said that failing to plan is planning to fail. Draft up a plan of how you're going to achieve your resolutions.
Break big goals into small ones
Big goals can seem unachievable, so break them up into small ones that you can achieve easily. Before you know it, by achieving those small goals, you'll have achieved that big goal that seemed insurmountable.
Celebrate your victories
Celebrate both big and small victories. Pat yourself on the back whenever you achieve something. This will keep you motivated.
Take a break
Take a break ever so often. This helps you rest and avoid burn out. Rest is important to rejuvenate your energy.
Learn from your mistakes
Don't be afraid to make mistakes; mistakes teach us important lessons. Evaluate where you went wrong and what you can do to make it right as well as how you can avoid such a mistake in the future. Don't ruminate, however.
