Now that all of the holiday decorations are packed away for another year, it is time to look forward to the New Year. For many of us, we will make those traditional New Year’s resolutions to do a variety of things. Some will vow to lose weight or stop smoking while others want to get their finances in order. Whatever you plan to accomplish, it can be difficult to stay true to your word. Sometimes we need a little help to stick to your resolutions. Here are a few tips:
Surefire Ways to Stick to Your Resolutions
Make Specific Goals: Those who make a specific goal are much more likely to stick to it than those who do not. Instead of saying you plan to save money in 2015, set a concrete figure and how you plan to get to that goal.
Write It Down: If you put pen to paper, you have a 49% chance of making that resolution come to fruition. Keeping a journal helps you keep accountable.
Make It Fun: This tip is geared mostly for losing weight. If you can change up your exercise routine, get a partner or make an upbeat mix tape of your favorite workout music, you have a better chance of sticking with your weight loss goals.
Have The Right Tools: If you plan to save money, have a separate account to put that money in. If you want to lose weight, plan ahead for your meals to avoid fast food traps. Making your meals at home gives you a better chance of staying on your food plan. If you want to save money and lose weight, eat at home more. Find ways to keep yourself on track with finding new recipes you will enjoy to help you succeed.
I have a ton of cookbooks up on the shelf and that is where they tend to stay. If you get in a cooking rut, you are in good company.
