Top 3 New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 (and How to Stick to Them!)
2019 came in with a bang and if you’re like most people, you have a stack of goals and resolutions to achieve for the New Year. Making a resolution is about making a personal promise to yourself to find a solution to a reoccurring problem in your life, hence the name “re-solution.” It’s all about improving and making your life better. Many of us find ourselves relisting the same resolutions every year. Here are the top 3 New Year’s resolutions for 2019 and how to stick to them.
1.) Get Healthy: With two-thirds of Americans being obese or overweight, it’s no surprise that losing weight is one of the top New Year’s resolutions. But if you’ve made this resolution time and time again only to see it make the top of your list again, you’re not alone. If you want to stick to this resolution, set a specific, small, achievable goal and then work toward building on that as time goes on. Instead of saying,” I want to lose 30lbs this year”, try, “I want to lose at least 2lbs a week for 3 months.” Need accountability and motivation? Reach out to a nutritionist or start a workout competition with your friends or family. Small changes to improve your health and wellness at a time are better than no changes at all.
2.) Digitally Unplug: In this digital age, it can be hard to let go of that smart phone or tablet for more than a few minutes, especially if you got a shiny new screen for Christmas. But if you feel the need to capture every moment with a picture to share online or think you’re having more conversations with your phone than actual human beings, it may be time to take a break. If you want to stick to this resolution, you can start gradually with a digital detox maybe one evening a week, then maybe for the weekend, and so on and so on. It helps if you can remove social networking apps from your phone, turn off your Wi-Fi (AND your phone), or lock your devices up so you’re not tempted to check work emails or post your latest “selfie.”
3.) Try Something New: Self-improvement is not a new concept, but it is often a difficult resolution to keep for some. Whether you’re looking to get more out of life or just add some new experiences, trying something new is a great way to enrich your day. To stick to this resolution, make a list of three things you are interested in trying, and them make an honest commitment to carve out some time in your busy week to do it. Take a watercolor paint class, join a hiking club, learn to play the guitar, or do something as simple as trying a new restaurant once a month. Find things to do that are nearby and within your price range so you aren’t deterred by distance or cost. Assembling a friend or family members to join you is an added bonus, because they can keep you on track and help you stay motivated.
