What’s Your Resolution for 2014?

Exactly one year ago today, we posted an article titled “5 New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 and for YOU,” with the following resolutions for 2013:

-Have a positive attitude.
-Let go of regrets.
-Take action in your life.
-Remove “I can’t” and “It’s too late” from your vocabulary.
-Reclaim your confidence.

Were any of these on your list? What were your resolutions? Did you stick to them?

Oftentimes, making your New Year’s resolutions is the easy part. In fact, after heading to the Christmas buffet for the third time, finishing off the second half of the pumpkin pie, and stuffing croissant rolls in your purse, undertaking an extreme diet and exercise routine might seem easy—until the gluttony of the holidays fades away, and you’re left feeling hungry, tired, and really, really missing the love of your life: chocolate. The truth is, sticking to resolutions, especially big ones, can be a lifestyle change, which requires measurable goals, a realistic approach, and patience.

-When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, it’s always best to be specific. This means that, instead of saying that you’ll “be healthier,” you’ll resolve to “set a personal record in the 5k,” “drink the recommended amount of water for me,” or “achieve a healthy weight for my body.” Also remember to keep it measurable and keep it realistic!

-Hold yourself accountable. It can be easy to blame the failure of past resolutions on relationships, work, etc. The truth is that YOU are the only one who has complete control over your resolutions. If they are measurable and realistic, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t be at least close to your goal by the end of the year. Share your resolution with a friend; better yet, find a Resolution Buddy, and motivate each other throughout the year. Write it down in a notebook, with why it’s important to you, and revisit it whenever you’re feeling unmotivated.

-Keep it fun! This is true for all resolutions but especially if your resolution is diet or fitness related. Eating the same foods and completing the same workout day in and day out will get stale fast. Instead, change things up! Join a healthy cooking group, and meet new people, while also learning how to make nutritious recipes. Sign up for a new class at the gym every so often. Find ways to keep your resolutions fresh and interesting!

-And lastly, who said your resolution had to be diet and fitness related? Maybe you want to write one letter to a long distance friend every month. Or maybe you want to read 10 classic novels before 2014. Whatever it is, be creative, and have fun!
