New Year's Resolutions

Stay On Track this Year!

Lose weight. Quit smoking. Get organized. Save money. January 1st is resolution day. About 75% of those who make a New Year’s resolution will keep it through the first week. But jump forward six months, less than half are still committed. Why the sharp drop? Why is it so hard for people to stick to their New Year’s resolutions? Is the goal too ambitious? Too broad? Loss of interest? Lack of motivation? No matter the reason, it’s clear that staying on track is a challenge.

This year, make your New Year’s resolution as clear and concise as possible. Set yourself up for success not failure. Do away with general statements; like “lose weight” or “quit smoking.” Set a specific goal to reach by a chosen day. If you want to lose 30 pounds by June 1st or quit smoking by March 17th; plan the steps you need to accomplish to achieve your goal. A clear path is much easier to follow than an ultimatum. And don’t be discouraged if you can’t stick to the plan perfectly. Remember, you can always start over. Perfection is not required, only dedication.
