Every new year, we make resolutions, but how long do we actually stick with them? They tend to fall pretty low on our to-do lists after awhile, so here are a few ways to keep our new year’s resolutions a priority.
1. Get a resolution buddy.
The best way to keep a resolution is to have someone hold you accountable for it. Find a partner in crime – someone who will ask you if you’ve met your goal, be a helping hand when if you fall and push you to do your best every day.
2. Write it in your planner.
Like I always say: if it’s not written down, it’s not getting done. Keep your resolution a priority by making it a part of your to-do list every day. If you’re as type A as I am, it’ll be hard to see one to-do list item unchecked. By doing this, you can bring it into your routine, and soon you won’t even have to think about doing it.
3. Monitor your progress.
Stay motivated by keeping track of your results. Whatever your resolution may be, be conscious of the progress you make, no matter how little, because even a small amount means you’re one step closer to reaching your goal. Try keeping a mental chart or write it down in a notebook. Whatever you do, give yourself credit for every step forward.
