Steps Required in Keeping your New Year Resolution
The time is here again, the time when you feel as if you have to turn a new leaf. This period is wrongly imagined that the start of a new year will magically provide a motivation, reasons and persistency that you need to reinvent in yourself.
Conventionally, New Year is seen as the moment when you need to start a new phase of your life, and also the moment for you to make important New Year resolution. Unfortunately, the early phase of New Year comes with a lot of stress. These stresses arise from vacation, New Year party, family visitation and many more. These events can lead to change of habit that will render your resolution useless.
Instead of vowing to make a change that will be hard for you to keep, why can’t you follow the easy steps below and make a resolution you will be able to keep.
Start with one thing
Trying to change your whole lifestyle at once won’t work. The best practice is to choose one area of your life at a go. Make your resolution clear to yourself so that you know the area of your life you want to begin with. If the first change is successful, you can now go ahead and make another change till you are satisfied with yourself.
Planning is one of the greatest things to have in place before taking any decision. Having a defined plan will put you at the right track even if you are distracted on your life changing journey. Read up about what you want to change in your life and get all the required material you will need during the process. Getting everything ready will make learning easy.
There will definitely be some problem on your way no matter how smart you can be. The best thing is to anticipate problem that might comes on your way. Once you are able to identify them it will be easy for you to deal with them.
Pick a day to start
Your New Year resolutions don’t have to start on the New Year Eve. This is a traditional believe, but if truly you want to make changes pick a day when you will be ready. The day you will be full of zeal to start something new.
You have to understand that no matter how organized you can be, failure will always approach you. If you fail and sneak a cigarette, shout at your friends, watch porn again and many other characters you want to get rid of. Don’t hate yourself for it, rather figure out what trigger the set back and promise yourself not to let it happen again
Note that New Year is not a catalyst for all-encompassing character changes. It is time for you to reflect on your past year behaviour and vow to make a positive life changes. Remember, it is not the extent of changes that matters, but rather the act of recognizing that lifestyle changing is important and working towards it, one step at a time. Have A great year ahead J
