A few tips to sticking with your New Year’s resolution

Goal setting is a key factor in improving yourself, whether physically, mentally, socially, etc.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you strive to keep those new year’s resolutions.

1) Write it down and keep it out

Have you ever set a goal, only to forget about it a week later?  The first step to successful goal setting is to write it down.  Break it into smaller steps and then keep it in a place where you will see it regularly.  If out of sight is out of mind, then keep your resolution where you can see it!

2) Don’t keep it a secret

Let others know about your goal.  The more people that know, the larger your accountability becomes.  Better yet, challenge a friend, family member, or co-worker to a contest or race based on your resolution – a little friendly competition can go a long way.

3) Keep going!

Don’t give up just because you slip here and there.  Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity to become a habit.  After about 6 months, that habit becomes second nature and part of your personality.  Stick with your plan and you’ll be feeling great in no time!
