The first thing to do, is to think of your New Year’s resolutions as a fresh start, because then you are about 10 times more likely to actually achieve what it is that you want.

You will probably be thinking of ways in which you can help yourself conquer bad habits, by quitting smoking, losing weight, clearing out all your junk from your house, and getting your finances in order. Achieving all these goals, and more, will make you feel more in control and on top of things, and as a result you will feel so much better.

Instead of just thinking very big and vague, and just saying, “I will lose weight”, you could say, “I will lose 5 kgs off my present weight”. Putting it like this will make it seem much easier to achieve. If you make a large, general resolution like “lose weight”, you might forget along the way why you set that particular goal. You need to think of something such as “I want to feel healthier”, because this will help you to keep motivated. Therefore the goal should be, “I will lose 5 kgs off my present weight because I want to feel healthier”.

Keep a journal. In this journal, keep records of what and how much you eat every day, and weigh yourself once a week. Note your weight in the journal, and make amendments to your diet accordingly. You can also make appointments with someone like a hypnotherapist for help with quitting smoking or losing weight, because hypnosis is very useful in helping people achieve these goals. You can write about what happened and what was said at these meetings in the journal.

Let family and friends know about the goals that you have set yourself for 2020. They will support you and help to keep you focused, motivated and on the right track. You may even find one of them who also wants to lose weight, and then you might be able to do something easy like perhaps go for a 15-minute walk with them once a week.

Never give up. Always keep trying, and like I said, if something seems too big to undertake, break it up. If you want to re-decorate the whole house, start with a small room like a bathroom and give yourself enough time to complete the task without having to rush things, because you will simply make yourself exhausted.

Take time over all your New Year’s resolutions, and don’t rush at them. Work slowly and steadily, and enjoy them, because you are far more likely to succeed.
