The new year offers the opportunity for a fresh start, the chance to do better than the last year and make the most of what the next 12 months hold. For many people, New Year’s is the perfect occasion to set goals they want to meet over the next year, and set resolutions to help realise those goals. Having a resolution is a good way to help you move forwards, to shake off the dust of the previous year and focus on creating something better. We’ve outlined some tips on how to make a New Year’s resolution that you’ll actually stick to.
Why do people make resolutions?
Not everyone loves New Year's resolutions; for some, it’s a pointless activity that only ends in bitter disappointment. Others can’t imagine starting the new year aimless and doomed to repeat the same mistakes. The symbolic freshness of the new year makes it an ideal time to start (or drop) habits. Take some time to reflect on what has happened in the past year; what worked for you? What didn’t? What do you wish you had done differently? What are your aspirations for this year? By answering these questions, you can institute good habits to help you reach your goals.
Why are resolutions important?
Resolutions are a powerful tool. They allow you to close a chapter on your past and open a new one where anything is possible. You can improve your relationship with your family, look after your health better, become a better person or spend more time enjoying life. Having a resolution will give you the motivation and stability to achieve your goals. If your goal is to appreciate your spouse more, the backing of a resolution can motivate you to write sweet notes, give them flowers and spend quality time together.
How can you stick to your resolutions?
If you’re not a resolutions type of person, that’s completely understandable as most resolutions fail before mid-march. But the solution is not to abandon resolutions all together – instead, try implementing strategies that set you up for success. Try making a resolution with friends so you can encourage one another, or share with some friends your resolution so that they can keep you accountable.
The best way to ensure you keep your resolution, whether it's eating healthy or exercising regularly, is to make it fun or build in a reward system. You can also set up notifications on your phone to encourage you throughout the year. Most importantly, keep the big picture in mind. If you start to feel discouraged, remember why you started this habit in the first place; motivation is key.
What are some New Year resolutions you can consider?
This year, try and choose a resolution that is focused on your community. That could be becoming a better co-worker and friend through random acts of kindness, or making efforts to develop an uplifting environment at home or in the workplace through fresh flowers and cleanliness. To improve your relationships, consider writing a thoughtful note for your spouse, complimenting your coworker, gifting your mum with flowers or taking on some extra work to help your boss. There are many ways you can support your community. Sometimes, it’s the small things that make the biggest difference.
