Step One: Reflect on 2018

The first step in creating a New Year’s resolution is to sit back and reflect on 2018. What went well for you, and what would you really like to improve in your day-to-day life. Decide what is going to make you happier and healthier in 2019.

Step Two: Set Your Goal(s)

Now it’s time to set your goal(s). You want to set one major goal that you can accomplish by December, but you don’t want to have this big, scary goal hanging over your head. So, set multiple small goals throughout the year that are more achievable and will get you to your end goal in December.

Step Three: Don’t Overload January

Be sure you don’t burn yourself out in January. Start your goals small, and work your way up to bigger and better goals. By starting out small, you will build your confidence as you go along achieving those smaller goals.

Step Four: Make Yourself Accountable

Find a way to make yourself accountable. There are a couple of ways you can do this. One way you can do this is by talking to all your friends and family and making it known that you are setting these goals and how you are going to achieve them. Or, grab a friend and make goals together. This will make you not only more accountable, but also help you have more fun while achieving your goals!

Step Five: Track Your Progress

Track your day-to-day progress in a planner or notebook. By doing this you’ll be able to keep your goals in the forefront of your mind as well as see your progress as you go. How fun will it be to look back on your progress notes after you’ve achieved your goal in December!

Step Six: Don’t Give Up

If you feel yourself falling behind don’t give up on yourself! Re-evaluate your smaller goals and adjust to meet your final December goal. Even a little bit of progress brings you to a better place than you were in 2018.
