Resolutions, A New Year’s Tradition

Posted in Blog on January 17th, 2017.

I’ve had varied success with setting a New Year’s Resolution. Years ago, I decided my resolution would be to run one 5K race each month for a year. I was successful that year, but that is not always the case. Many times, we set ourselves up for failure with our New Year’s Resolution. This year, instead of trying to lose 25 pounds by June, or go to the gym 6 days a week, my resolution is to simply exercise more. This year I found a great article that outlines tips for creating better resolutions. I’ve paraphrased below and linked to the full article here. Consider these tips as you work toward or modify your resolutions and goals for 2017.

10 Tips for Setting Successful Resolutions

  1. Set intentions instead of strict expectations.
  2. Determine WHY you want to make the change.
  3. Get out of your own way.
  4. Create a theme.
  5. Set goals in line with your values.
  6. Avoid deprivation.
  7. Monitor your progress.
  8. Set smaller goals that build to a larger goal.
  9. Avoid perfection.
  10. Create a goal-friendly environment.
