New Year’s resolutions may sound cliché, but experts say that writing down your goals, creating a course of action and practicing methods of self-affirmation can help lead to resolution success. With these suggestions, try to make 2018 the happiest year yet!
1. Set yourself up for success
You’re more likely to keep a positive resolution than a restrictive one. “Try something small, like saying that you will eat an extra serving of fruits and veggies every day instead of saying you will never eat chocolate again,” according to an article in Time magazine. It is also important to have a support system in place for success. With an environment that supports your behavior and by surrounding yourself with supportive friends and relatives, your chances of achieving your goals increase, the article explains.
