Top 10 New Years Resolutions

Popular resolutions that people make every year - and helpful advice on how to achieve your goals.

Every year we make resolutions, and before the first month of the new year is over, many of us have already failed to keep the promises we made on New Year's Day. 

Here are some tips to make those resolutions stick courtesy of Medical Daily.com

1. Tackle one behavior at a time. “Setting small, attainable goals throughout the year, instead of a singular, overwhelming goal on Jan. 1 can help you reach whatever it is you strive for,” said psychologist Lynn Bufka, Ph.D. “Remember, it is not the extent of the change that matters, but rather the act of recognizing that lifestyle change is important and working toward it, one step at a time.”

2. Tell your friends and loved ones what your resolutions are. Telling people about your goals gives you both a support system and a way to hold yourself accountable. It also makes the goal that you’re trying to reach less intimidating. “Announce your goal to friends, family, random strangers, social media,” said fitness enthusiast Bethany Lyons, according to the NY Daily News. “This puts your intention out there into the universe, and the universe will support you in ways you have yet to imagine.”

3. Don’t beat yourself up if you falter along the way. “If you fall off the wagon, you don’t have to wait until Jan. 1 to start again!” said ballet dancer Marisa Ceveris. “Every Monday, every day is a fresh start.” And the American Psychological Association agrees. Remember that setbacks are normal, and recovering from mistakes will be the difference between those who succeed in keeping their resolutions and those who fail.
