Resolutions & Goals

bigstock-Goals----54267677

According to the University of Scranton Journal of Clinical Psychology, the top 5 resolutions for 2014 are:

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Get Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
  5. Staying Fit and Healthy

45% of Americans make New Year Resolutions and a mere 8% of those are successful in completing those resolutions!

Want to know how to be part of that 8%? Here are a couple of practical solutions to help you meet your goals/resolutions in 2014.

Be Specific
Try not to set blanket goals like, “I want to lose weight this year.” Instead, be specific and say “I want to lose 5 pounds by March 1.”

Be Realistic
Don’t set yourself up for failure! Set realistic goals for yourself. If you are starting a job in the mail room, don’t set a goal to be CEO of the company by 2015. (A mild exaggeration, but you get the point.)

Be Original
Make your goals specific to you! A friend or family member may have similar goals but signing up to lose 30 pounds with a friend when you clearly don’t have 30 pounds to lose will only hurt you in the end.

Write Goals Down
Physically writing your goals down and posting them where you can see them everyday will help you stay focused. Try keeping a journal about your progress as well! You will have something to look back on after you have met your goals.

Share Your Goals
Sharing your goals with a spouse, friend or family member will allow them to help you stay on track. It is easier to meet your goals when you have a great support system.

Resolutions come and go. Try incorporating lifestyle changes that will help you live a healthy and happy life and also benefit your loved ones. Focus on positive, permanent solutions that will improve your quality of life.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to helping all of you find joy in a healthy lifestyle in 2014!

Happy New Year!
