Many people don't keep New Years Resolutions. It may be because it's not personal, or you might be biased because you don't like society telling you to change, the resolution is too vague, or you just don't have a realistic plan to achieve your goal. If goals are specific, there is a better chance you will achieve them. Some good resolutions might be losing five pounds in a month, instead of just to lose weight. Maybe you want to make new friends. Your resolution could be an increased effort to be more social, or kind to others. Now if you are still having trouble coming up with a resolution, just remember the trick is to use the acronym SMART.
- Specific. Specify what it is you want to do.
- Measurable. Make sure you can keep track of what it is you want to do.
- Achievable. Be sure you can actually do this resolution in the time you have (one year).
- Relevant. Make the goal matter to you and what you stand for.
- Time-bound. Give yourself time to do your resolution.
Good luck, and happy new year!
