Next week we will enter 2019, which means continuing your 2018 goals, but also making new ones! Many times we make goals for ourselves, and by February they are forgotten about. Today we are going to show you how to keep your New Year’s resolutions and set achievable ones!
Create Tasks, Don’t Just Set Goals
It’s so easy to say “I’m going to _______ to achieve _____.” However, when you don’t have actions in place to achieve that goal, it will never become a reality. Make a list of the thing you can do in the time frame you want to achieve the goal so you can cross them off as you go! If you need daily reminders of the tasks, write them down or place post-it-notes all over your home.
3, 6, 12
While having a year-long goal is excellent, break it down. Make small goals so that way you can see yourself achieving something! You’ll be able to look back on your progress see all the hard work you’ve put in. If living a healthier life and losing weight along the way is a goal of yours, set goals for 3, 6, and 12 months. Even if you don’t hit the target every time, you’ll see your progress much easier!
From Small to Big
As much as setting big goals is great, when you set them too big, they won’t be obtainable. Make sure throughout the New Year you set small goals that you know you can work at and achieve! Whether it’s to cook every night instead of eating out, call your grandparents every Thursday night, or treat yourself to something you love after a long work week.
