Making New Year’s Resolutions Work

Posted in Uncategorized
Friday January 4th, 2019 •

A brand new year means a brand new start, and we all have resolutions to leave bad habits behind and achieve unaccomplished goals from the previous year. How often do new year’s resolutions work out though, and how long do we actually live up to them? If you often fall off-track with your new year’s resolutions like most of us do, here are some tips that will help you get it right this time.

1. Goal

One of the main causes of failed new year’s resolutions is a vague goal. For instance, if you want to lose weight, determine how many pounds you’ll be working out for, or if you want to develop a healthier sleeping habit, then set a specific bedtime to follow. Just remember to keep it realistic, so that you can keep yourself motivated with a real shot at achieving your goals.

2. Action Plan

Now that you have your specific goals, it’s time to turn your words into actions. If you wanted to lose 10 pounds this year, how are you going to achieve that? More than just saying you’ll start working out more often, sign up at a nearby gym and figure out a fitting schedule. If you wanted to be asleep by 10 PM on weeknights, get off work on time and set a bedtime alarm on your phone. That way, your goal becomes actionable.

3. Purpose

Staying on track can be challenging, with all temptations, negativity, and doubt that can take a toll on you, but it helps to know the purpose of your goals by heart. Aside from setting specific goals, know the whys to them. Keep in mind how these goals can benefit your well-being, and you’ll stay motivated and on track.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
