New Years might be long gone but your resolutions don't have to be!
Set Realistic Goals that Are Attainable
For instance, you should set a goal to lose a certain amount of pounds, go to the gym a certain number of times, and others things that are actually measurable.
Saying you want to exercise more, lose weight, or be more fit just are not clear enough goals. When you're setting your goals, make sure they are attainable. For instance, it's not a good idea to say you want to lose 100 pounds if you've never lost more than five before.
Make Plans for Success with Checkpoints
However, having a plan isn't enough — you need to have built-in checkpoints to keep you on track.
For instance, you should evaluate your progress every Saturday, or some other given time. If you're not on track, you can make changes to your plan before it's too late. There is still time this year to get your plan together and complete those New Years' resolutions.
Get Support from Others
For instance, if your New Years' resolution is to quit smoking, you'll be much more successful if someone is supporting you through this difficult life change.
Don't Give Up if Your Progress is Slow
