With the New Year already underway, many of us are striving to make and maintain resolutions for 2014. While such goals are part of what makes the promise of a fresh start so exciting, the burden of keeping them can, at times, only add to our stresses. Fortunately there are a number of things you can do to stay on track for the New Year.
1. DON’T MAKE YOUR GOALS OUT OF REACH
Be realistic whenever setting resolutions (or any type of ambition) for yourself. You will only set yourself up for disappointment if you place too great a strain on your expectations. Making promises to yourself that you are unable to keep will only cause you more worries. Always be honest about what you are capable of, and begin from there.
2. TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME
If you happen to break your resolution, remember that each day brings a new beginning. Do not dismiss all the hard work you’ve put into your goals for 2014 simply because of a slip or personal setback. Rather, promise yourself you will simply try again the next day.
3. DEVOTE YOURSELF ENTIRELY
More often than not, New Year’s resolutions revolve around creating and sustaining a physical goal. However, such an objective is not exclusively about your physical self. Mental preparation is also a must! If you devote all aspects of yourself towards your resolution, you will be more successful at upholding it. You deserve to make your well-being a top priority! And do not underestimate the everyday essentials of maintaining great health: Always get plenty of sleep, proper nutrition (a good diet does not mean depriving yourself!), and setting aside time to exercise will keep you accountable and better equipped at handing personal goals.
