Welcome to 2020! Most of us are back in school today and we are left with the question many ask; What is your New Year’s resolution?
New Year’s resolutions seem to fall under a pattern most years. We come up with extravagant goals like eating healthier, organizing more, or losing weight. While they are amazing goals, they always seem to fall short. We stick to them for the first few weeks or so and then they slowly fade away and we are back into our old habits.
The truth is, New Year’s resolutions don’t really work. They may for some but you have the opportunity to make those goals at any point in the year, not just New Year’s. The difference is whether you’re mentally or physically ready to make these goals happen for yourself.
Instead of making a huge list of goals at the beginning of the year, I’d suggest making small goals as you go along like: volunteer in January, work more in February, etc. Find small goals that fit your lifestyle as you go throughout the year. That way you’re not putting too much pressure on yourself and are more motivated to succeed rather than fall short on your promises.
New Year’s are wonderful times for new beginnings, just remember that you can start something new at any point, you just have to be ready.
