New Year's Resolutions You Will Stick With

On January 1 many of us make all kinds of promises that “starting tomorrow, things are going to be different.”

How can we take advantage of our good intentions on January 1 and make them work for us throughout the year, or at least for longer than they would naturally last?

For long-term success, a detailed and sustainable action plan is key.

Take advantage of these moments of clarity at the start of the New Year and take actions that would commit us to making good decisions in the future.
For many people the New Year means a fresh start, and another New Year’s resolution.We are determined to make 2014 the year we stick to our health and fitness goals.
And while making the resolution to lose weight is easy, keeping it, can be a challenge.
However, when you are convinced that losing weight is more important than what you are giving up, then you are ready for action and you will likely succeed.


  1. There's this wonderful sense of renewal with the New Year, and it gives me hope that I'll turn things around. But I never pull through. I think the methods I use to motivate myself aren't working.

  2. Here are some tips for sticking with New Year’s resolutions:

    + Make a plan that is realistic and outline specific steps you will take to reach your goals
    + Write down your goals and review them periodically
    + Focus on changing one unhealthy habit at a time
    + Seek a professional or friend who can help motivate you by providing accountability

  3. Setting and achieving goals isn’t a matter of will power, character, or intelligence. It’s a matter of understanding how your brain is wired to integrate new behaviors and learning a particular set of skills necessary for both setting and following through on your goals.

  4. I started to run every day and eat healthier because I want to get rid of a few extra pounds, but it's always challenging to hold the result. So I look for inspiration everywhere. Blogs like yours make me not to give up and try new things! Thanks, here I found a lot of useful information!
