How to Keep New Year’s Resolutions

keep New Year’s resolutionsEvery year we make resolutions for the new year, and most of us don’t do a great job of keeping up with them. It almost seems like resolutions are doomed to fail if you make them for New Year’s, but this year can be different if you follow these tips on how to keep New Year’s resolutions.

For one, willpower, according to WebMD, isn’t something you can just force yourself to have overnight. You have to build it up, and a good way to do this is by practicing it in other areas of your life, which will make it easier for you to keep your big goals for the year, like strengthening your hand by squeezing a grip strengthener or rubber ball.

It’s also a good idea to make one big resolution and stick to it, instead of making a bunch of resolutions at once. If you have a broad resolution, like eating better, which also involves a lot of little resolutions like shopping in different areas and cooking more, you’re less likely to forget some other resolutions.

Break your goals down into segments you can see the results of within a week or month, instead of something you’ll work toward over the course of the year. Set small goals for yourself that will add up to your big goal.

Hopefully these tips will help you toward success! Check out WebMD for more ideas on how to keep your resolutions.
