Here's How To Set A Realistic NYE Resolution #WellnessWednesday

December 27, 2017 by Alaisha Key

It’s that time again to think about your goals for the year ahead, and with there being less than a week before the New Year’s Eve countdown, you’d better figure out what you’d like to focus on in 2018 fast! But if you have no idea where to start, especially if you don’t have the greatest track record for keeping your resolutions, let us give you some much-needed advice for 2018. Here are some tips to help you set a realistic NYE resolution that you can actually keep.

1.Figure out what went wrong last year. As the saying goes, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Well, the same notion applies to your New Year’s resolutions. Don’t just keep doing the same old same old if it’s not working for you. Make sure you think long and hard about your past goals and figure out what kept you from achieving them. Then make sure you don’t repeat those circumstances this year by coming up with a plan that you can follow.

2.Keep it simple. One factor that may be keeping you from your goal is that you’re resolution(s) may be too elaborate for you to keep up with. If you have a handful of resolutions from working out to healthy eating that require equal dedication, time and weekly or even daily planning, then you can get in over your head fast. After all, that’s why many resolutions don’t make it past January of February, so aim for simple things that you can do.

3.Don’t do it all at once. You do NOT need a long list of resolutions to focus on in 2018. Seriously, just pick one or two things to work on for the upcoming year, as there is no use in overloading yourself with too many tasks that you cannot complete. Think about it: you’ll be just as busy as you were last year. Save yourself the hassle and zero in on what’s really important.

4.Get support from your squad. Guess what? You don’t have to do everything by yourself, and that includes NYE goals. If you choose a resolution that many others have like working out, think about getting a little help from your circle of friends or family members. You can keep each other on track as the year goes on.

5.Pick a goal that you can track. You shouldn’t just assume that you can keep yourself motivated if you’re not necessarily seeing results. Find a goal that you can work towards that you can actually track. Seeing your own progress could help you stay focused as well as make changes to tailor that goal to fit your goals.

6.Admit that you’ll probably fall off. It’s no secret: most people do not fulfill their New Year’s resolution, so go ahead and admit that keeping yours on a regular basis may not happen. Though when you do fall off, you have to make sure that you begin again. Don’t just give up if it is something that you really want to achieve. Start over. You do have a whole year.
