It’s finally 2019!  With the new year starting it’s time for new beginnings, memories, and like always: resolutions. Resolutions are goals that many people set for themselves to reach throughout or by the end of the year. But in some cases, it’s very hard to achieve those goals and many people fail. So to avoid this, here are some tips to help you reach your New Years resolutions and come out on top.

Start Small

According to the American Psychological Association, a good way to start is simply small. Give yourself a goal you know you’ll be able to maintain and keep. Once you set that goal and reach, you can begin to make another one and the cycle continues.

Be Realistic

According to the psych center, think about your past experience with New Year’s resolutions, how did it fall through and what can you do to make it happen this time around. With that being said, “remember, there will always be more opportunities to start on the next phase, so set realistic goals. Or if you don’t want to hold back, set clear short-term goals on your way to a big achievement.”

Time-bound

According to the New York Times, give yourself enough time way in advance to develop your habit so it’s easier for you to reach your goal. “Focus on these small wins so you can make gradual progress,” Charles Duhigg, author of “The Power of Habit” and a former New York Times writer, said. “If you’re building a habit, you’re planning for the next decade, not the next couple of months.”

Personally, my New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. This has always been hard, so throughout the year, I’ll be updating my progress.
