WholeLife Matrix: Health & Well-Being
“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” ― Buddha
Many of us make New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of each year with good intentions, but it has been found that people often don’t keep their resolutions for very long. What is the reason for this? Well, most people don’t have a good plan or system for putting their goals in place and sticking to them. In this article, we offer some tips for success.
The first step is to establish what your goals are. Your goals should be realistic, specific, and measurable. They should also be things that you are really interested in accomplishing because your interest will help to keep you motivated. You should expect that you may need to change some habits to accomplish your goals, so be prepared to form new habits. Pick only a few goals that you can really focus on and manage. Once you have accomplished these goals, you can add more goals that you might want to work on.
A realistic goal is a goal that you can stick with. For example, you might resolve to eat sweets only once a week. Trying to completely eliminate sweets from your diet may not be realistic for you. To satisfy your sweet tooth, you can also try eating heathy sweets like raspberries, which do not contain a lot of sugar.
Your resolutions should be planned before New Year’s Day so that you have enough time to clearly plan realistic resolutions and step-by-step implementations. For best results, your resolutions should specify the actions that you will take. For example, instead of saying “I will take more walks”, say something like “I will take a 30 minute walk each morning at 8:00am every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.”
Visualize yourself as having accomplished you goal and feel what that will feel like. Write down your goals and the reasons you want to accomplish them and put this in a place where you can see it each day to keep you motivated. Also share your goals with positive people who will help to keep you on track.
You should have a good tracking system to monitor your progress so that you know how you are doing. Break a big goal down into smaller steps and reward yourself when you have completed a step. Don’t worry if you get off track occasionally. For example, if you are following a diet plan and you overeat one day, just continue your plan the next day!
