Did You Make a New Year’s Resolution This Year, Oceana? Here’s How to See It Through!
January 15, 2016
Whether you vowed to quit smoking, travel more, or to develop a better workout routine, New Year’s resolutions are always a great way to improve your life in ways both big and small. If you’re wondering how to stick with your 2016 resolution even through the ups and downs of daily life, these handy pointers will keep you on track!
- Begin by narrowing your list down to one or two reasonable resolutions. If you take on something too large (or just too many resolutions at once), you may not realistically be able to get things accomplished.
- Work your resolution into your schedule by planning your workouts when you have free time, developing new hobbies when you would normally take smoke breaks, or even setting aside savings for that big European getaway.
- Reward yourself along the way to motivate yourself to keep going. Start small, but build up to larger rewards the longer you stick with it.
- Enlist a buddy—perhaps a friend or neighbor from Oceana—with similar goals to help hold you accountable. The two of you may even be able to work toward your resolution together, making it feel less like work and more like fun!
