    New Years Resolutions

    News Year Resolutions
    So another New Years has come and passed, and like every year you and millions of others create a list of New Year’s resolutions. Resolutions that you promised yourself you will stick through with for the whole year. This year you say to yourself you’re not going to give up before January is over like all the previous years. But who are you kidding; you know you’re going to struggle with the task. You’re going to be like one of those people who promised themselves they’re going to lose weight – swarm the local gym in January and then mysteriously drop out by February. To help you stick with those resolutions, here’s a guideline to successfully help you stay committed!
    Set Reasonable Goals
    • First and foremost don’t pick a goal that’s impossible to accomplish. Don’t say you’re going to make a certain super hot Korean star your boyfriend (I've tried, it doesn't work) – only in your dreams will that happen. Don’t say you’re going to lose fifty pounds when you weigh a hundred and thirty pounds – are you trying to become anorexic? And don’t you say you’re not going to procrastinate – it’s just something that’s programmed into our teenage brains. If you establish impossible goals for yourself, that’s just self sabotage. On the other hand, you should still strive to challenge yourself. Pick a resolution that is within your reach and at the same time something you need to actually work hard on to accomplish.
    Game Plan
    • Now that you’ve come up with your list of resolutions, it’s time to plan out a schedule. Which ones are you going to tackle first? Maybe you’ll arrange them from easiest to hardest or the other way around. It’s all up to you. The more planning that you do ahead of time the easier it will be to achieve your goals. Decide how you are going to make your goals come to life and bring your dreams to fruition. Do this and you will be better prepared for success.
    Let the World Know
    • Don’t keep them as secrets. If you have resolutions, then you should share them with the whole world. Let them know what you’re aiming for and why you’re aiming for it. The more people know what you are up to and why, the more they can be a source of support when you need it the most. They can remind you when you stray off track or urge you on every step of the way. An even better idea is to find a friend with a similar resolution and work together to achieve your goals. That way, you can both support each other and have fun while doing so.
    Reward System
    • Reward yourself! This is the last and most essential step when trying to complete your resolutions. If you’re going well and making progress then go watch a movie, get a massage, anything you could possibly think of to pamper yourself. You deserve it!
