Keeping a New Year resolution can be challenging for even the most motivated people. Staying motivated is a battle within itself, especially if you aren’t sure how to go about succeeding in your resolution. Fortunately you don’t have to walk into your resolution blind. We here at Ewing Buick GMC have a few great tips to help you keep your New Year resolution in 2017!
- Slow Down – When it comes to tackling your New Year resolution, it’s best to do so slowly. Changing several habits at once, for example, will increase the likelihood of failure. Start by changing one small habit and doing so consistently, then move on to another. Try to develop a rough schedule throughout the year so you can tackle each part of your resolution with full force.
- Talk – Sometimes talking is one of the simplest ways to motivate yourself. Find a friend, family member, or pet that’s willing to sit and listen. They may even offer some advice. Simply discuss your resolution, what you want out of it, and how you plan to get it.
- Relax – Failing once doesn’t mean your year is wasted. Shake the shortcoming off and try again. There’s nothing wrong with failure provided you can always get back up and give your resolution another shot!
