New Year’s resolutions are as easy to make as they are to break. Most often, they last a couple of weeks before they run out into the sand, this can be seen not least in the gym chains’ visitor statistics, which usually skyrocket during the month of January. However, there are some tricks you can use if you want to keep your new resolutions throughout the year.

This is how you keep your New Year’s resolutions

  • Set realistic goals

An important prerequisite for being able to keep a New Year’s resolution is that the goal is realistic. Set reasonable goals for yourself, and rather think that you can develop the goals the longer you go at it.

Go into detail about your vows. Instead of thinking “I’m going to start training”, write down specifically what you’re going to train, what you want to achieve, how and when you’re going to do it.

  • Start incrementally and create milestones

Better to start a little cautiously instead of going too hard all at once. Create milestones and stick to reasonable and long-term time frames.

  • Think about the goals from a long perspective

Stop thinking “quick-fix” and let your New Year’s resolutions become long-term lifestyle changes instead. By establishing these gradually and thinking from a long and sustainable perspective, it becomes much easier to keep your promises.

  • Motivate yourself through reward

Don’t forget to motivate yourself and reward yourself when you make progress. Find what your particular carrot is and include it as part of your goals.

Don’t let negativity become part of your motivation! Instead, try encouraging yourself with positive reinforcement. Let your goal images be loaded with positivity too, and the road to get there will be much more fun!
