Give your resolutions a reboot!
“Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.” – Mark Twain
So, it’s a few weeks after January 1st - how are those New Year’s Resolutions working out for you? While that laundry list you made might have looked good on paper, executing them is a whole other story and, like most people, you may have already given up.
However, it’s not to late to start over again. Here are some suggestions to reboot those resolutions to make them achievable.
First, think of a resolution as a goal. Now, break that goal down into smaller goals on how it can be achieved and remember to give yourself plenty of time to get there.
In other words, if you’re not a runner and your resolution was to run 5-miles everyday and you took off on a 5-mile run on January 2nd, chances are you didn’t to make it. Instead, try starting off with maybe walking a quarter mile for a few weeks then add a little more running each week and then add a little more distance. It may take several months, but once you achieve your goal, keeping the resolution is set.
Breaking resolutions and goals down into several achievable ones, gives you a positive sense of accomplishment and you’ll want to continue.
Now, if your goal was/is to lose weight (gee, never heard that one before) Dr. Roy Baumeister, a professor of psychology at Florida State University and co-author of the book, "Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength," explains it best:
“I would say if losing weight is difficult, and, you know, that's the most challenging thing, don't make that the first thing you do. Set a more realistic goal to, you know, make your bed every day or stop swearing in front of the children or I don't know what. You know, and then when you've made those changes and those are successful, then you can move on perhaps to a more challenging one.”
Also, when it comes to behavioral modification, try doing something for twenty-one days in a row. Why? It takes twenty-one days to reprogram the brain into accepting a new behavior.
