By the time the end of January rolls around, many people have already lost track of their new year’s resolutions. Whether you’ve decided to start exercising three days a week or to drink more water throughout the day, even if you’ve already forgotten about your goals, it doesn’t mean you can’t recommit to them. Here are four steps to help you get back on track.
Step 1: Re-Motivate Yourself
Why did you make the goals in the first place? Was it to get healthier or to get in better shape? Think about the reasons you made the resolutions and use them to re-motivate yourself.
Step 2: Make a Step-by-Step Plan
Perhaps the number one reason people don’t stick to their goals is that they didn’t have a plan for reaching them in place. Setting goals is easy, but implementing a step-by-step plan is harder. Set up a weekly plan for reaching your goals.
Step 3: Find an Accountability Partner
Recruit a friend or family member who is trying to commit to the same goals as you are and set up challenges with them for reaching the goal. Finding a partner will help you stay more accountable to your goals.
Step 4: Track Your Progress
Find a way to track your progress for reaching your goals. Remember that no victory is too small to celebrate!
