With 2018 right around the corner it's time to start thinking about those new year resolutions. Most people always say they are going to make changes to their life but usually have a hard time following through. I'm going to give you some tips on how you can make your goals actually come to life.
The first thing you should do is think about a few things you want to achieve. After figuring out your top goals write them down on a piece of paper and put this somewhere you can see it everyday. This way you will be reminded and motivated to make those changes. If one of your resolutions is to be less lazy you could write, "I will exercise each day for 15-30 minutes." It's important to write your goals in a positive way. It's also better to have specific goals. If you would have written, "I will exercise each day", then you are more likely to get off track. You have to keep in mind that your goals should be reasonable. If they are too hard and far out of reach you will just be set up for failure and will not want to try again. Don't forget about your schedule and what you will be able to accomplish. Develop a time line and deadlines for yourself. We like to see progress so checking things off as you go and finishing your tasks will keep you motivated.
Remember, don't give up on yourself. If you need some encouragement talk to friends and family. Having a support system can go a long way. Make sure you reward yourself from time to time. Making changes isn't easy, so you should be proud of yourself no matter what!
