We all make them on 1st Jan, but keeping the momentum can be a challenge. We’ll keep you motivated with our advice. Everyone has things they want to change or do differently with each New Year. It’s like the slate is wiped clean and you can reboot. If you’re one those people, here’s how to follow through. Pin it If you pin it where you can see it all the time, it keeps you driven to achieve. Put it in the closet, on the fridge and next to your bathroom mirror. Break it down This means pacing yourself, don’t just expect it to happen overnight. If your aim or resolution is losing weight, then say it out loud. Own it and it will be. Of course, you need to make adjustments to diet and stick with it Talk about it Share your experiences with family and friends. Consider joining a support group to reach your goals, such as a workout class at your gym or a group of co-workers quitting smoking. Having someone to share your struggles makes your journey that much easier. Don’t beat yourself up Perfection is unattainable. Remember that minor missteps or splurges are okay. Forgive yourself and resolve to recover from your mistakes so you can get back on track.
