We’re two weeks into 2021 and you are far from alone if you have already given up on your New Year’s Resolutions. Here’s how to get back on track.
Set Goals That Are More Realistic
It’s easy to get so excited about having a clean slate that we set goals that are a bit too aggressive. So, take a new look and break your goals down into bite-sized and measurable chunks. For example, one small dietary change per month is more realistic than committing to an extreme diet.
Ditch Or Rethink A Goal
As you break a resolution into smaller pieces, you may find the goal isn’t right for you. It’s not uncommon to set goals that we think we should achieve, but your resolutions should be personalized to you. So, feel free to let one go or modify the goal so that it works for your lifestyle.
Take A Fresh New Approach
Resolutions aren’t for most people, which is why 80% of those who set them have given up or forgotten their resolutions by mid-February. So, consider a fresh new approach. Two top alternatives include creating a vision board and working with a life, career, or health coach.
Lifestyle and habit changes don’t happen overnight so be gracious with yourself!
