    TIPS for Sticking to Your New Year's Resolution

     

    1. Write down your goals -- It is always a great idea to write down your goals. Be very specific about what you want to accomplish, start small and work up to your ultimate goal. Give yourself daily, weekly, monthly and then your yearly goal.

     

     

    2. Be your own motivation! -- No one is going to come over everyday and knock you over the head with motivation. The first thing you need to realized is that the only person you are letting down by giving up too quickly is yourself.

     

     

    3. Reward yourself for a job well done! -- Make Sure you celebrate the little milestones you accomplish along the way to meeting your ultimate goal. Be sure to pat yourself on the back.

     

     

    4. Post your resolutions -- Put your goals up where you can see them throughout the day. This will serve as a perpetual reminder and encourage you to move forward.

     

     

    5. Change your behaviors -- Whatever your resolution, make sure you set yourself up for success. Don't put yourself in situations that will cause you to fail. If you want to eat healthier, don't fill your cupboards with junk food. If you want to quit smoking, you'll have to change your daily pattern up a bit so you fill the time you normally would have been smoking, with healthier habits. Just make better choices that will help you in the long run.
