Already struggling with keeping your New Years Resolution? Here are some tips on how to keep it going all year long!
Apparently, the standard length of time a New Years Resolution lasts is two weeks. That's pretty sad! "In fact, the second Friday in January is known as "Quitters' Day" -- because that's the day most people abandon their resolutions." (Independent)
If you need some help with sticking to those resolutions, here are some tips from experts:
1. Get specific! If you get down to the nitty-gritty with clearly set goals then you are more likely to keep them.
2. Measure your progress. Write it down, get a fitness tracker, a journal or planner. You have to be able to measure your achievements to keep yourself motivated and on track.
3. Be reasonable: Don't set unattainable goals that you're likely to give up early on.
4. Only make New Year's resolutions about something you're really passionate about: Choose a resolution that you actually care about so that you stay interested.
5. Set small, attainable goals so you stay motivated. It feels good to hit a goal, no matter how big or small it is. (NY Times)
