New Year's Resolution Tips

Planning a head is the best way to make your resolution work. At some time or the other in your life you have made a New Year's Resolution - and then broken it. This year, stop the cycle of resolving to make change, but not following through. Here are some tips to help get you started.

Realistic: The certain way to get success of your goal is to make your goal realistic. For instance resolving to never eat your favorite desserts again could be a bad choice. Attempt for a goal that is wise to do

Plan ahead: Don't make your resolution on New Year Day. If you wait until the last minute, it will be based on your mind-set on that particular day. Instead it should be well planned before.

Map Your Outline: Decide how you are going to deal with the attraction to skip the exercise class, or just have one more cigarette. This could include calling on a friend for help, or practicing positive thinking and self-talk.

Formulate Pro’s and Con’s: The list of items on paper may help you to keep your motivation strong. Develop this list over time. Keep your list with you and refer to it when you need help keeping your resolve.

Let People Know It: Don't keep your resolution as a secret. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better. The best case scenario is to find yourself a buddy who shares your New Year's Resolution and motivate each other.

Keep Trying: If your resolution has totally run out of steam by mid-way, don't disappoint. Start it over again! There's no reason you can't make a New Year's Resolution any time of year.
