2020 was a hard year for everyone. One way you can put 2020 behind you is by setting new goals for the new year. This year, instead of making a New Year’s resolution with a list of drastic changes you will give up on by February, attempt to reach a few goals in small steps. Here are some tips to help get you off to a great start in 2021 whether your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, to stop smoking, to make better financial choices, or to spend more quality time with your family.
Create an Outline
You need to have a plan in place when the temptation to have that piece of chocolate cake takes over. Start by writing down your goals. Don’t forget to note any obstacles that might stand in your way like upcoming events or equipment you might need to purchase..
Visualize Your Plan
It will be easier to stay motivated to complete your New Year’s resolution if you’re able to somehow see some progress. Create a calendar using Microsoft 365 from Buydig.com to mark each day you accomplish your goal. This will give you visual evidence of the progress you’re making on your New Year’s resolution.
Pros and Cons
Make a list of the pros of staying focused on your New Year’s resolution. Then make a list of the cons if you don’t follow through with your New year’s resolution. If you struggle to come up with items for the lists, conduct a Zoom meeting on your laptop, desktop or tablet with friends and family so they can help contribute.
Track Your Progress
Set short-term goals for yourself, and keep track of even the smallest successes. Keep a journal in your Samsill Padfolio Profsnl Zipper Junior to help you stay on track. Jot down your motivational notes, track your foods for the day, expenditures, or any other goals you are working on for your New Year’s resolution. Then when you are ready, slide out your tablet from the wraparound zippered pocket, and chat with your fitness buddy, or motivational group on Zoom to finish your day on a high note!
Use these tips to make sure you achieve your New Year’s resolutions. Here’s to your success in 2021!
