It’s that time of year again — it’s time to make our New Year’s resolutions. Now that 2020 is almost over, it’s time to start looking ahead to a brighter future, and with this comes a need to make a promise or resolution to be a better version of ourselves. This New Year’s tradition can be a great way to make a positive change in your life, but many times our dedication to a New Year’s resolution fizzles out a couple of weeks or months in.
Continue reading for a few tips on how to set a New Year’s resolution that you’ll actually keep this year, and if you are in the need of an apartment for rent in Akron, contact the team at EnVision Apartments today to schedule a tour.
Set Attainable Goals – Even If They Are Short-Term
This year, give yourself a bit of a break — 2020 has been a struggle for all of us. If you still want to set a New Year’s resolution, remember to make that goal attainable. While you may seem like you’re not thinking big enough, keep in mind that most people give up on their resolutions a month or two into the new year. So, try setting a short-term goal that you can achieve by the end of January or mid-February or break up a larger goal into small parts. Then once you’ve achieved this first goal, you can set another goal to achieve in the following months.
Schedule Steps to Attain Your Resolution
When most people make a New Year’s resolution, they propose a grand change that they plan on making in their lives. This big change can be difficult enough, but without proper planning is almost impossible. For example, if you plan on exercising more this coming year, try scheduling an exercise that you enjoy for two days a week. Start small and give yourself time to get into the swing of things and build up your endurance.
Try Setting SMART Goals
SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based. This formula ensures that you are setting realistic goals that you can measure and requires you to set a timeline for the completion of your goal. If we return to the example of exercising more often, put into a SMART goal might look something like this: My goal is to go for a 45-minute walk every Monday and Wednesday in the morning before work for one month. Breaking down the broad goal of “exercise more” into a SMART goal now makes it much more achievable and easy to follow through.
