Keeping Your New Year's Resolutions
Welcome to 2019! Like many of us, you probably jotted down (or typed out) a few New Year’s resolutions when you woke up on January 1. And also like many of us, you’ll probably either slip up or forget about them entirely by the time February rolls around. Do you want to actually stick to your resolutions this year? Despite what you may have heard, it’s not impossible! Here are a few things you can do to toe the line and get results in 2019.
Write Them Down!
We already touched on it above, but it bears repeating: writing down your resolutions or goals is absolutely crucial! And don’t just put them on a post-it note that’s going to get tossed with the rest of the trash. Keep your resolutions logged in a place you’ll consult regularly and that matters to you. When you’re recording your goals, be sure to include a time element so that you’ll feel some pressure to take concrete steps toward your goal. Whether you want to read two books per month or finish that draft of your screenplay by December 31 at 11:59 PM, be specific!
Visualize Your Success
When you’re working toward making your resolutions into realities, keep your eyes on the prize (or something less cliched than that, if you prefer). Always hold in your mind that sense of relief and accomplishment you’ll feel when you finally reach your goal, whether you’re trying to hit a target weight or finish remodeling your basement. There are differing opinions on whether visualizing success directly helps you achieve it in some sort of metaphysical sense, but there’s no doubt that it keeps you focused and on tasks.
Good Night, Sleep Tight!
A lot of people make the New Year’s resolution to get more sleep. And even if that’s not one of your goals for 2019, keeping your mind and body well-rested can give you a serious boost when you’re trying to stick to your resolutions. Lack of sleep can cause anxiety, depression, heart disease, diabetes, decreased cognition, and lots of other medical issues. Unless your goal is to end up significantly less healthy in 2019, improving your sleeping habits is guaranteed to help you get to a better place this year.
