Set and Keep Resolutions and Intentions in 2018

 

On the dawn of 2018 , this is good time to think about setting intentions and making resolutions for the year ahead. Setting and keeping intentions gives us a sense of accomplishment and self worth. With an average of only 8% of people keeping their resolutions; they’re easy to make and hard to keep. Below are a few easy tips on how not to derail in the New year.

Be realistic

For example, if you’re aiming to get healthy or lose weight, aim for 5 pounds and cutting out one bad food. The idea is to set yourself up for success. By keeping the resolution achievable you will hit your goal and can always increase as the year progresses.

 

Be Accountable

Make a resolution with a friend. A great idea is to make a plan to meet up for a run or workout twice a week. By involving another person, you become accountable to one another. If you own a Fitbit or use workout tracking apps, share them on social media, as this is accountability too.

 

Set a Timeline

A realistic time line will allow you to hit and surpass your goal. Resolutions derail when the time line is too short. A helpful tool is calendar you can mark the days off-this way you can visually see your progress. Remember this is marathon not a sprint.
