Here at Your World: Healthy and Natural, we are all about making each day your best. I personally prefer to make smaller goals each month that I can accomplish. But, if you prefer making New Year's resolutions, then let me give you a few ideas for how to stay on track with them.
The most important tip I can give you is - don't get down on yourself and give up when you slip up.
Know that you are going to fall off the wagon, and it is OK. We set a goal or a resolution and then feel like there will be only smooth sailing until we reach it. I love that confidence, but I don't want you to feel like a failure when there are bumps in the road. Don't use a bump in the road as an excuse to give up. When you fall off, get back up and get right back on track!
When setting your goals or resolutions, be specific and realistic. Instead of setting the goal to lose weight, change the goal to losing 6 pounds a month. And don't get so lost in your goal that you forget to live each day to the fullest and appreciate all the hard work you have already done!
Don't forget to get support from friends and family. You don't have to make a massive deal of it, but letting others know your goals will help you feel accountable and maybe even motivate someone else.
If you want our support, let us know your New Year's resolutions. Let us know how we can help you get there!
To a fabulous 2012!
