Research suggests approximately 40 percent of U.S. adults will resolve to change their lives in some way come January 1.It's no secret that most new year's resolutions don't make it to February. This list will give you some helpful hints to staying on track all year long.
1. Write down your goals
When you physically write something down, you have a 46% better chance of remembering to it. Also, writing it down is a way to solidify something in your brain. Try making a vision board for 2018. Put pictures of what you want to accomplish and have fun with it!
2. Track your progress
If you're trying to lose weight or just live a healthier life style, write down how many calories you're taking in. Or, write down whenever you do exercise. Or, start a weight-loss log. Progress is progress, no matter how little or how much. Remember that.
3. Be held accountable
Having an accountability partner is a great way to stay on track! Letting someone else know what you wish to accomplish and having them hold you accountable is sometimes the best way to reach your goals.
4. Have fun
Some people just dive head in and don't let themselves enjoy life, and then end up ditching their resolutions. It is good to transform yourself into a better person, but don't beat yourself for slipping a little. We're only human, and we like to enjoy yourselves.
