In One Year and Out the Other—Making 2019’s Resolutions Last

New Year’s resolutions can be a great way to motivate yourself and make positive life changes. However, sticking to resolutions like new diets or spending habits can take some serious dedication. Here are a few tips to help your resolutions last all the way until 2020:

  • Start resolutions early. When setting a resolution for 2019—such as losing a certain amount of weight or saving a specific amount of money—don’t wait until it’s too late to get started. Instead, focus on what you can do now and on a regular basis.
     
  • Make your resolutions as specific as you can. While a simple resolution like exercising more may seem like a good idea, it’s easier to follow through if you have clear goals. Make a schedule for when, where and how you’ll accomplish a specific resolution.
     
  • Go one step at a time. Resolutions should last for the entire year, not just for a week or a month. Don’t try to overexert yourself early in the year by doing too much too quickly—instead be sure to stay consistent and take your resolutions one step at a time.
     
  • Find a friend or family member to work on your resolution with. Completing your goals with a partner can help you stick to your schedule. Plus, a little friendly competition can help you stay motivated!
     
  • Know when to take a break. Although it’s important to work on your goals regularly, remember to pace yourself and take a break every now and then. That way, you’ll be able to come back to your resolutions with a relaxed and refreshed mindset.
