Therefore, that first sentence could be completed in many different ways.
For me, I know I have so much hope and plans for the upcoming year.
Such as I have a brand new reading goal for Goodreads. I also have a new Disney family trip planned for the upcoming year. I mean you know this girl just loves her Disney!
But I would also love to try a few new things, as well. So, I am still currently in planning mode for my blog and my life, as well. I mean just because January 1st and has come and gone doesn’t mean I have all my goals set in stone just yet.
But still, I know each year I make resolutions. Very often, I start off strong with these same resolutions. However, I find I have a hard time following through on some of what I resolve to do for the year.
So can I make resolutions and still keep these resolutions, too?
Well, I thought I’d take a better look at this to help myself, as well as others who are thinking about their own upcoming New Year’s Resolutions.
4 Simple Ways to Make and Keep Those New Year’s Resolutions
1. Have very specific and achievable resolutions.
When making resolutions you want to make sure these resolutions are specific and clear cut. Also, these same resolutions should be achievable and not just pie in the sky resolutions. For example, setting a weight loss goal. Try setting an attainable weight loss goal that will work specifically for you in the foreseeable future. For me, I want to lose the 5 extra pounds. So, I am going to mix in cardio (Stationary bike) and sit-ups (modified for my lower back issues).
2. Make sure those resolutions can be measured easily.
Also when making resolutions, you want to have a way to measure that you are making headway with these resolutions. Take the same example with losing weight. You will want to be able to measure your weight loss by possibly writing down your weekly weight or even taking pics to see the difference weekly.
3. Relevant resolutions can make all the difference.
Once again, the resolution needs to work for you and your lifestyle. To make a resolution, such as running 10 miles a day to help with weight loss might work for some, but not for others. See let’s say you have never ran before. Or you live where it is freezing and snowing every day for months on end. Running 10 miles for a new runner or one who lives where running outdoors just isn’t doable right now might not be a possibility. For the cold weather dweller, you may want to look into online workout classes or workouts that can be done indoors. Or for the aspiring runner, you may want to start out running less miles at the very least.
4. Know where to start.
