It seems that New years resolutions are made to break, a little bit like rules!
We seem to set ourselves impossible tasks or too many at once.
We are 10 days into 2012 now… How are you doing with your 2012 resolutions?
If you said you were going to Eat Healthy Food and went out for a huge steak and chips this weekend, does that mean you’ve failed as this infographic suggests? No, of course not – it just means you tripped up along the way. Besides you can have a treat now and then, ok it was a little early into the year, but don’t give up!
If you have chosen more than one resolution such as…
- Get Fit
- Loose weight
- Give up Smoking
- Get a better job
- Leave Facebook
- Join Google+
…just decide which one is the most important and stick to that for 6 months or so, then maybe tackle the next one. You will just go crazy trying to do them all at once and probably give up completely. Choose the easiest first like joining Google+
You can make the resolutoins at any point in the year by the way, it doesn’t have to be new year, maybe decide that in March you will start going to the gym after you have not smoked for 3 months, your body will love you for it.
I like to see these targets as Goals – rather than New Years Resolutions. Set yourself Goals throughout the year, and if you don’t achieve it at first, carry on, don’t give up, you know what you need to do, so just keep trying. Ask for help, no one will think any less of you – get support from friends, family, doctors or other professionals that are there to help.
Don’t set yourself impossible tasks – perhaps just take little steps towards it.
How are you doing with your resolutions? Are you winning? What resolutions did you make?
