I have stopped making New Year’s resolutions for the previous few years. I could never keep them together for more than two weeks if I had made them. But this year, I resolved to make sensible goals for the New Year and follow through on them.
Confronted with challenging New Year’s resolutions, like getting in shape and giving up junk food entirely, I quickly realized that I lacked the willpower to see them through.
This coming year, though, I plan to improve by making more reasonable New Year’s resolutions.

Why Make Goals That You Can Achieve This Year
If you want to lose X pounds by the end of the year, you probably won’t succeed. I read somewhere that a more effective strategy for losing weight is to focus on how fantastic you feel when you’re fit.
For this reason, it is more practical to commit to completing SOME form of physical activity. This necessitates making an active decision to carry it through. In the end, it aids in progress toward your objectives.
It’s a lot simpler to stick to a resolution if you make it very easy and doable without requiring a significant investment of time and effort.
Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions
Many different strategies exist for helping people stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Some such solutions are listed below:
- If they are easy to implement and maintain, people are likelier to stick with them.
- Reward yourself at the month’s end if you’ve succeeded in sticking to them.
- Reduce the amount of time you’re giving yourself.
- Chunk your resolutions up into manageable pieces. Don’t try to juggle too many things in your mind.
- Keep a journal
- accept the fact that setbacks are inevitable, but get back on track as soon as possible.
Get Your Heart Rate Up with Cardio Every Day for Twenty Minutes
Each day, I have twenty minutes to spare. There are numerous options for completing 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise. Lunchtime stroll. Early morning treadmill interval training.
I like to unwind at night by dancing in place in front of the TV. It’s better to take a brisk stroll than to linger in the supermarket.
I’m Going to Try to Watch What I Eat.
Pick up the appetizer size! This resolution for the New Year is less daunting than you may believe.
That I take too much pleasure in eating contributes to my issues. When this affection is coupled with stress eating and a sedentary lifestyle, the result is an extra pound or two every month.
Keeping track of how much I eat during the day will help me maintain a healthy weight and prevent me from becoming sluggish and bloated after eating. Both the body and the brain benefit from this.
To that end, I shall consume food from progressively smaller plates from here on out.
I Will Publicly Acknowledge My Joy.
How often do we vent our frustrations to our significant others, relatives, acquaintances, and coworkers?
This achievable New Year’s resolution will do wonders for your mental and spiritual health.
To counteract my tendency toward pessimism, I will make it a point to focus on the positive aspects of my life.
When we get up in the morning, most of us first turn on the television, where we are inevitably met with headlines of yet another homicide or automobile accident on Toronto’s streets. The news is slanted and biased, making us angry for more fundamental reasons. We can only shake our heads and marvel at how things got so twisted. We have so much joy in our lives, but we take it for granted.
Our little kid is growing up to be this funny, brilliant, and lovely human who loves us completely. We are healthy. Our family members are all doing well, including our aging parents.
My spouse and I share the kind of love, friendship, and respect for one another that many couples only dream of.
This is the secret to our joy, and we should tell ourselves every day when we wake up.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
In a more practical light for all you hardworking mothers out there, a New Year’s resolution…
Now that I’m a mom for the first time, I know that nothing will ever be the same.
I used to be able to spend as much time as I wanted on “me time,” but now I have duties that prevent me from doing so. Because of these duties, there is pressure to keep things running smoothly and orderly.
Ok, so here’s the deal, honey… Motherhood has a way of turning your world upside down. Unfortunately, unpleasant days are a common occurrence.
For instance, it’s not uncommon for babies to decide to defecate right when their parents are about to sit down to supper. It’s a constant occurrence. You might forget to grab your keys as you try to hold him and rush out the door in the morning (try doing squats with a 23 lb 9-month-old).
The next time anything silly happens, I promise to laugh about it. Nothing major happens. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about it.

What If I Let My Resolutions Slip?
Even with reasonable goals for the new year, I will fail. Getting back on track with one’s resolutions will be a continual focus.
To my close friends: Please see how I am doing. Inquire as to whether or not I am sticking to my New Year’s resolutions. Feeling guilty motivates me to get back on track.
Frank, my spouse, is my biggest supporter. I’m now employing him as a full-fledged bugger. I give him the green light to prod me into action when I start to slack off on my resolutions because I know that even with reasonable goals, it is easy to get complacent.
