Today I’d like to share with you 5 tips on how to stick with your resolutions.
Tip Number 1# Start today, and stop waiting for the “right” time.
It’s so easy just to sit on the couch and watch Netflix or just going straight into bed without washing your makeup off and doing a skin care routine. But we find it so difficult to eat the right foods or exercise or for me starting a YouTube channel or stick to blogging on a regular basis.
But what you have to say to yourself is, I’m another day a way from being the person I want to be, or another day away from having a YouTube channel, or another day a way from being consistent in blogging. Which may end up being a week or a month away if you simply can’t be bothered sticking to your goals.
2# Write down what is stopping you from pursuing your goals.
Is it that your scared what people are going to think of you. Is it that it seems to be to overwhelming. Is it that you don’t have a lot of knowledge about it. Or is it poor time management. Whatever it is, write it down on a piece of paper of what is stopping you from pursuing your goal and then figure out a plan.
So if it’s scared of what people will think of you, don’t be scared, because people who judge you are the people that aren’t true friends, and the people who don’t judge you are the people you know will be there by your side. And just sit down and come to a conclusion on how your going to fix the problems.
Tip number 3 time management:
A lot of resolutions don’t get complete because people believe that they don’t have enough time. Well if your goals mean a lot to you then you will find time and that might mean sacrificing your time. That might mean waking up two hours earlier to kick start your goal and dedicate that time to your goal. Or wether it’s doing your goal after school or after work or after your household has gone to bed, whatever it may be, if your goal or resolution means so much to you then you will find time. It may be not watching Netflix or tv for a while just to stick to your goal.
Tip number 4: schedule | journal
I love journals. Every morning I wake up and write a to do list on all the things I would like to complete that day and in that schedule I make in time for my resolution. This is a great and easy way to help you stay on track on what needs to be done everyday.
Tip number 5: have a timer.
Now this is a tip I have only just started and I have to say that it’s one of my favourite tips!
So what I do is dedicate half an hour on cleaning my house or whatever it may be that I want to complete and then I’ll put my timer on and keep doing that task until the timer has finished. Then I decide wether I’m enjoying the task I’m doing and keep continuing to do it or wether I then decide to reward myself a break.
So what I usually do once the timer is finished is, I’ll give myself 20 or 15 minutes to then reward myself for doing that task and I’ll use the time to do whatever I want to do. And then I’ll reset my timer and continue my next task.
I hope you enjoyed on how to stick to your New Years resolutions. These are just a couple of motivating tips that are beginning to help me.
