Oh, how good it feels to be back! Since August, I’ve had a lot of changes in my life – both good and bad. I’ll have to catch you up soon with a series of new blog posts. But until then…

Check out the resolutions I made for myself in the new year. Please hold me accountable! Usually I go with something simple like “be a better person” or “work out more.” This year, I took a different approach that is a bit better suited for my mindset.

I like to compartmentalize my life just to stay organized, so I figured that compartmentalizing my resolutions would be more beneficial to me. Check out how I broke it down below.

Keeping Your New Year’s Resolution

new-years-resolutions-calendarEvery 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.
