The first 10 days of this year are over, the Christmas tree has been dismantled, presents have been exchanged and good resolutions have been forgotten - this is how the new year can begin.
So the good intentions are not just intentions!
But wait a minute! What about our good resolutions, our plans for the new year? Why are they forgotten again and swept under the carpet?
Surely they weren't that wrong! We have put together a few tips for you so that the good intentions can still be implemented.
The classics among the resolutions
For the next year I want to eat healthier, exercise more and eat less sweets.
Also, I will stop smoking from January XNUMXst and plan to redesign the house. Incidentally, I'll finally implement all of my new projects that I actually wanted to do years ago, I need a new job, I definitely want to have more time for the family.
Oh yes, and from January onwards, savings will be made and not so much money will be spent on unnecessary things ... Did that sound like your good intentions for the new year?
Well, then we can understand why you haven't really started any yet and have already postponed half of them to next year.
Don't do too much
If you overwhelm yourself and take on too much, you not only lose sight of the goal, but also a lot of motivation, not to mention perseverance.
Just screw down your resolutions a bit or do one at a time. Otherwise you would be so overwhelmed at the beginning that after only a few meters you lose interest and give up.
Think about which resolution has absolute priority for you and what is most important to you in the new year. Maybe it's the much needed new job to have more time with the family? Well, then start looking for a job now or do what makes you happy professionally. Everything else can wait too!
Or has your diet been a thorn in your side for a long time and you finally want to live healthier? Then start and remember, the date you start is not critical, it is much more important to just start. Whether this is January 1 or January 15, 2017, think about the goal, there is still plenty of time until the end of December.
Don't lose stamina and motivation
If you put yourself under too much pressure, you lose your motivation. And pretty quickly. Do you want to quit smoking? Then not only set yourself the goal, but also set your reward for doing it.
But don't wait too long with the reward. We humans work according to the principle of reward and we should make use of this in all our resolutions.
Good resolutions for the next year
Presumably, many new beginnings will be decorated with good intentions and that is a good thing. So if you can't do everything in one year, just postpone one or the other goal to the next year. The main thing is that you create something that you set out to do.
