04 Jan 5 Tips To Keep Your Resolutions
Posted at 14:59h in Tips & tricks
The beginning of a new year is a good time for retrospection. Self-examination is a great way to move forward and become a better version of yourself. However, January 1 is not a magical date on which our dreams will effortlessly come true. We give the resolutions too much importance since we know they are most of the time defeated in advance.
Do you recognize yourself in these words? How about we do something different this year? Why not turn your resolutions into sustainable long-term goals?
We wanted to share with you a few tips to help you start 2022 on the right foot!
Think About Your "Why"
If you want to make some changes in your habits, there must be a reason behind this ambition.
Is this reason strong enough to keep you going when times get hard? What aspects of your life will be positively affected by this change? More quality time with your family? Improved physical capacity? Greater financial freedom? More trips and memories?
Your “why” is what will prevent you from giving up when the motivation for novelty has worn off.
Turn Your Resolutions Into Goals
We know resolutions are hard to keep in the long-term, while goals tend to make more sense in a larger vision of your life. Make sure you set yourself a “SMART” goal: Specific, Measurable, Ambitious, Realistic and Time-bound.
Have a Plan and Be Realistic
Don’t jump into the void; be prepared! Have a short, medium and long term action plan.
If you want to get back in shape, hire a professional to make you a diet plan and / or a workout plan. If you want to save money, set an amount to accumulate each week, see what expenses you can cut, and set up your savings account. If you want to spend more time with your family, rearrange your schedule.
