2018 is already here, and you may have already spent the first few weeks keeping your New Year resolutions. However, as everyone knows, those resolutions start to slip as February and March come along, so here’s some advice for keeping on top of your goals.
Make Sure You Picked the Right One
Did you dive right into a total diet and exercise regime just because that’s what everyone does? You might want to reevaluate your resolutions and make sure you really want to do it. If not, pick a different goal that’s more your style.
Measure Your Progress
Your resolution should be something quantifiable. Keep track of milestones, like how much money you’re putting in savings once a week or how many pounds you want to lose per month.
Have a Realistic Timeline
Having ambitious goals can be inspiring, but it can also be overwhelming. Having good time management skills can help you set more realistic resolutions that can be achieved in a year.
Keep Resolutions Specific
“Lose 15 pounds” is a more specific goal than “lose weight.” Having a specific resolution makes it easy to keep your eyes on the prize.
Using these tips, keeping your New Year’s resolutions will be easier than ever. Try assessing your goals for 2018 and ensuring they fit you and your lifestyle.
