Keeping Your Resolutions
If you are like most people, early in every new year you resolve to change your life for the better. Maybe you want to save more money or lose weight or get more organized or whatever. And by February, you usually have returned to your old ways. But there are some things you can do to improve your odds of success:
- Know why you want to make a change. When your motivation to spend less or exercise more begins to wane, it is helpful to remember the big-picture reasons for doing those things.
- Tell others about your resolutions. You are more likely to stick to them if you have gone public.
- Break things down into more manageable parts. If you want to cut your spending, for example, start with a modest goal like 5 percent. If you meet that goal, you might be inspired to aim for more.
- Don't get discouraged. If your resolve weakens and you spend or stress more than you should or exercise less, don't throw in the towel. Start again.
