    Pick the Right Resolution for You 

    When it comes to choosing a New Year’s resolution that is best for you, you should consider what goals you are hoping to achieve rather than paying attention to the resolutions that others are setting. You want to make sure that your resolution is something that is important to you as an individual to make sure it is something that matters to you which will improve the chances of you sticking with it. You want to set an intention based on what you want to achieve in the new year, not what others want you to. 

    You want to find a resolution that inspires you as an individual. Your resolution doesn’t have to be super serious either. All in all, you want to make sure that you set a resolution that you can see yourself sticking to. 

    Make a Plan 

    Many will set a New Year’s resolution without having any idea of how they will actually carry it out in the new year. To ensure that you know how to achieve your goal, you should make a plan of how you will stick to and carry out your resolution. Create a starting point with steps that can help you move closer and closer to your goal. 

    For the best results, create goals that are specific, attainable, realistic, and measurable. Creating a timeline to stick to can help you track your progress in increments throughout the year. For example, you might set monthly goals and reward yourself for meeting them in some way.

    Additionally, if you want to hold yourself accountable, you may consider thinking of a penalty that you can set for yourself for not meeting your goals. Many fail to carry out their New Year’s resolution because they feel it lacks consequence. For this reason, setting a penalty for not reaching your goals and a reward for meeting them can help you stay motivated while keeping yourself accountable.
