New Year's Resolutions
Many people start the new year intending to improve on some aspect of their lives. “This year I’m going to exercise 5 days a week,” or “This year I’m going to save more money.” A article I read stated that 47% of people who set resolutions aim for self-improvement, however, just 8% of us are successful. Why is this and, more importantly, how can we do better?
The article I read goes on to suggest that the best way you can set a resolution you can stick to is to stop setting a list of specific resolutions and focus instead on a more broad, one word resolution. The truth is, the longer the list, the more detailed the plan, the harder your resolution is to keep track of and achieve. Your one-word resolution can revolve around a theme that encompasses many things you’d like to do and allows for flexibility and the unexpected turns that life throws your way.
Some focus words for the new year could be:
When your goal is broad, it takes a little more thought in the beginning, but should be more achievable down the road. As the year progresses, you can continue to focus on the word that you choose to represent your goal, but address it in different ways to continue to move forward. Health for example can mean eating better, drinking more water, exercising, sleeping more. The list can go on and on. If you find yourself struggling with exercise but you are eating better and getting more sleep, then you are still progressing toward your resolution even if you still have areas you could improve.
There are things we constantly do to ourselves that ensure failure. One of the biggest is being too hard on ourselves and holding ourselves to unrealistic resolutions that sound good in theory but become overwhelming and lead to giving up. Don’t do that this year. Whatever your one-word wonder resolution might be, don’t forget to appreciate yourself and celebrate your progress along the way.
