New Year’s Goal Setting Tips

January indeed seems like a new fresh start for everyone and it is the perfect time to set goals for the New Year; however, we know it is not easy to stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

It is hard to change old habits but it is not impossible and this year can be different with a few helpful tips to set your New Year’s goals.

First of all, write down all your goals and review them periodically. There is a high probability of failure if you don’t write your goals properly, not just anywhere. Keep your list in a place you can see them often to check your progress and give yourself a little bit of motivation.

Reviewing your goals is not enough, you need to make them measurable. To do this, you should keep in mind to set goals that can be measured in short periods, for example, I will only eat one chocolate per month, instead of I will stop eating chocolate forever.

Try to create goals in different areas of your life. Do not focus only on your finance or health. You can set work, relationships, and spiritual goals. By doing this, you are bound to see a ripple effect in all aspects of your life and you will get a big positive change.

Remember to set realistic and attainable goals. Don’t try to lose half of your weight in 12 months, get a new job that pays twice, etc.. It is better to set only one objective that involves many goals, by doing this you can accomplish smaller goals and achieve all your objectives.

Finally, why do you think New Year’s resolutions are so hard to fulfill? They are hard work and no one tends to notice if you give up on them! So, team up with your friends or family to accomplish a common goal together. Believe me, it will be easier for both of you!

New Year is coming and you need to be ready! I hope these tips were useful to you!


5 Tips to keep your New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year to everybody!!! Another year is ending and we’re so motivated, because thanks to that, many of us are gathering up our willpower to achieve a set of New Year’s Resolutions. However, according to statistics, almost half of the people will give up on their goals within six months, so probably by February 1st, you may already have blown it.

For this reason, we share with you 5 tips to keep going on in order to achieve succesfully your resolutions and avoid being part of the 50% of the people.

1.Keep your resolutions simple, specific, and realistic

Most of the times people find themselves trying to improve their entire lifestyle at the beginning of the year, however, this can be really disapointing if you don’t set realistic goals. The best approach is to focus on short-term goals on your way to a big achievement. For example, if you want to lose weight set concrete dates on which you aim to lose a precise number of pounds to shed.

2.Plan a time-frame and make notes

A time-frame is vital to measure your success because it will allow you to see how you’re progressing. Buy a calendar or a diary in which you can write down your plan actions for the coming weeks or months. Remember to add your motivations. They can be inspirational quotes or even magazine clippings which represent what you want to achieve, anything that reminds you why you’re doing it.

3.Substitute good behaviors for bad

You will need more than willpower to achieve your goals. it’s better if you substitute the bad behavior with a healthy one. According to the book “The power of habit” of Charles Duhigg, you can’t eliminate a habit but you can change it. For example, if you want to save money, first of all, you need to identify what you spend more money on and why you do it . It  may be because when you’re so stressed so you get relaxed by going shopping. Then, since you already know the cause, instead of going shopping you can go for a walk or do something else that helps you to relax.

4.Treat yourself

It’s really important to keep you motivated by giving yourself rewards or treats because you’re doing a great job. However, don’t fall into the trap of putting your goal in danger. For example, if you wish to travel to a different country and you’ve been saving money, don’t reward yourself by going shopping and spend too much money.

5.Track your progress

Last but not least, you must track how you’re doing it. Check your notes and your time-frame in order to see how much you’ve progressed if you achieved your short-term goals in time or what else you need to improve.

Now that you have read these tips, you have the magic recipe to improve your life this new year. Feeling good and satisfied with yourself is worth time and effort, Good Luck!
