Struggling to keep on top of those New Year’s resolutions? Aren’t we all. These tips should help keep you on track if you set the bar too high.
The first step to achieving your resolution is to set a goal you can actually reach.
While a lot of people who make New Year’s resolutions generally find them hard to keep, those who are successful make reasonable ones,” says Deborah Serani, PsyD, author of Depression in Later Life.
“Unrealistic resolutions set you up for failure.”
For example, instead of vowing to get supermodel skinny, set a plan to help you get to a healthier weight.
Holding a grudge? Sitting on a massive credit card bill? In a fight with your mum? Don’t panic, there’s still time to fix all these things and start your new year off right.
