Super excited to start the new year? We bet you are, and why not, as this new year will be filled with new opportunities, new challenges, and so many new memories. And while we are at it, why not discuss all the new year resolution ideas you will have. We understand that most of us struggle to follow through with our resolutions.
In a 2014 report, 35% of participants who failed their New Year's Resolutions admitted they had unrealistic goals, 33% of participants did not keep track of their progress, and 23% forgot about them; about one in 10 respondents claimed they made too many resolutions. But we are about to tell you how you can build some solid resolutions this year.
What Is New Year Resolution
New Year Resolution in simple words is what a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behaviour, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of a new year.
It's extremely personal and you should not be copying anyone but making a mark for yourself and doing the things you’ve wanted to do forever, but you were just looking for a fresh start. But they should be attainable.
3 Tips On How To Make Attainable New Year Resolutions
1. Check Its Relevance
Is the thing that you are planning to do important to you personally and will bring joy to your life?
For example, if your goal is to travel to XYZ location, do you love that place or does it have an emotional relevance?
2. Make Clear Resolutions
Avoid being too vague when it comes to making resolutions, as that will help you gain no clarity. Make sure you are fully confident about its purpose before you put it into practice.
For example, instead of saying ‘I’ll get fit this year,’ be more specific as to what qualifies as getting fit, is it losing weight, or gaining weight, or mental health.
3. Make Measurable Goals
Make sure that you can track your progress and actions when working towards this goal.
For example, if your goal is to read more books, you should make a resolution of reading for 1 hour every day and then track how many days you followed through with this goal. You can either start a habit tracker spread in your notebook or tell someone to hold you accountable for it.
These were three tips for new year's resolutions on making them achievable to align with your goals.
