New Year’s Resolutions – How to Keep Them


New Year’s Resolutions are a way to consider how to improve your life.  They should be remembered throughout the year.

There’s a simple way to improve your chances of sticking to your resolutions…

Make them achievable goals. 

Instead of saying, "I’m going on a diet", buy less unhealthy snacks and replace them with fruit.

Instead of saying, "I’m going to exercise more," say, "I’m going to take a walk with my spouse every weekend and with my friends twice during the week."  Exercise partners help you stick to it.

Instead of saying, "I’m going to spend more time with my family and friends," call them up and make plans.  Or put time on your calendar for your family and say that’s our time to do something together.

Instead of saying, "I’m going to enjoy life more," make plans to do something fun.

Instead of saying, "I’m going to help others," call your library and find out how to volunteer in your community.

In short, whatever your resolutions are, don’t just talk about them.  Make plans and stick to them.  Write your resolutions down on your calendar on the first day of each new season to see if you’re following them.  If not, then make new plans to achieve your goals.

Good luck and Happy New Year!
