How to Make New Years’ Resolutions A Success
While we may have the schedule, the outfits, the perfume brands and even the invitations nailed months in advance, New Year’s resolutions don’t tend to come up until that time-warp of a week that falls between Christmas and New Year.
As our festive over-indulgence wrestles with our desire to be fighting-fit for the last big night of the season, many of our New Years’ resolutions reflect this, with people promising that the 31st will be their last night giving in to temptation, or at least the beginning of a change in habits.
Whilst these are admirable resolutions to come to, achieving change, unlike the new year, does not happen overnight, and many are deterred from continuing with their resolutions due to this early sense of disappointment.
Sticking to Promises
These are some hints and tips for those hoping to effect real change from their New Years’ resolutions:
• Just One Is Fine
Some people may believe that having a longer list of objectives gives you a better chance of attaining one of them, but most find that having just one goal makes it easier to focus on and increases your chances of success.
• Make It Matter
Fads and trends come and go and basing your new years’ resolution on something fleeting may come to feel like a waste of energy. Finding something personal that will make a difference to you and work at it.
• Dream Big, Start Small
Given the choice, we would all be world-saving superheroes and big dreams are great things to have but keeping our expectations and timescales realistic can go a great way to both realising our aims and staving off disappointment to keep us motivated.
• Keep Track
Whether your resolution is charity, abstinence or something else entirely, keeping track of what you have achieved from the very beginning can be very rewarding and provide motivation to take it further as time goes by.
• Say it Out Loud
Knowing that other people know your goal and are likely to check up on it with you can provide an extra level of support and motivation to help you achieve your goal.
As well as having people to celebrate your successes with, they may also help to pick you back up and carry on if you falter at any point, too.

New Years’ resolutions don’t have to be a serious affair to create an attainable goal, either.
They can be silly, fun and even a little bit selfish, if you want them to be and the fun ones may end up being all the easier to keep. Being kind to yourself is not the worst resolution you could make, either.
