January 29, 2018
So January didn’t go how you thought it would. You set some big goals for yourself, and you didn’t follow through. Does that mean you should chuck those goals in the trash? No way! There are still plenty of hours, days, weeks and months left in the year to get your new year’s resolutions back on track. Read on to find out how!
#1: Time is Arbitrary
Sure, the new year feels like a great time for a fresh start. But the truth is, any day is good for a fresh start. You don’t need to wait until the first of the month, or even next Monday. You can start again any time you want.
#2: Adjust the Resolution Commitment Window
Sometimes turning over a new leaf needs to be done in baby steps rather than huge leaps. Try committing to a goal for a smaller window of time than you’d imagined. They say it takes 28 days to form a habit, but even committing to a new behavior (or to eliminating an old one) for one week can give you the motivation you need to keep going.
#3: Tweak Your Resolutions
Perhaps your initial new year’s resolution wasn’t as great of an idea as you thought it would be. Maybe you decided to eliminate all carbohydrates from your diet and found yourself sluggish and irritable. Maybe you decided to take up running seven days a week and found yourself suffering shin splints. If you initially aimed too high, reassess what you now think will actually work in your life, and tweak your resolution to match. Sometimes it’s better to aim lower so you can take advantage of the initial high of meeting your goal. You can always up it later.
#4: Get Accountability
Pick one or two accountability partners to help you stick to your goals. Whether you’re all pursuing the same goals, or even if you each pick something different, knowing someone is expecting you to carry out what you’ve started can be exactly the kick in the pants you need to keep going.
