5 tips to keep your New Years’ resolutions

We’re halfway to the end of January and it may be getting harder to stick to your New Years’ resolutions but we have some tips to create lasting change from your friends at Better Living and Days of our Lives.

image

1.) Realize that big goals take time to achieve

Big goals require that you make smaller, micro-goals to help bridge the distance between start and finish. Everyday make a list as to how you will help achieve your resolutions today.

2.) Have joy in the journey!

Eric Martsolf (Brady) does exercises he enjoys so he’ll stay motivated. “It’s important to be a fan of what you do so you’ll do it more.”

image

3.) Don’t be afraid to fail.

No matter what your goal is, there will always be an occasion where you don’t quiet make it but there’s nothing wrong with that. You may stumble along the way, but always keep the big picture in mind.

4.) Write your goals down and share them with friends.

People that write down resolutions are more likely to keep them. Also telling your friends and family about your resolution, increases the subconscious drive to succeed and live up to your words.

Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) gets together with neighborhood pals to do group walks. “We do a six mile loop throughout our town and we solve all our parenting problems along the way!”

image

5.) Remember to always push yourself to become a better YOU.

Shawn Christian never stops bettering himself, “I like the idea of pushing myself to places I’ve never been. If I don’t challenge myself, I feel like something is missing.”


Make sure to LIKE us on Facebook and share your goals with us, we’d love to hear them!
