What is your resolution for 2024?

Consider these tips to choose the right resolution for you.

  1. Pick the right resolution. According to the New York Times, only one-third of resolutions make it past January. This year, make the right resolution by being more specific with your choice. Instead of saying “lose weight,” try putting a number to the amount of weight you would like to lose.
  2. Plan ahead. Instead of waiting until the last minute, try making a schedule for the year. If your resolution is to lose weight, make a goal for each week or month.
  3. Track your progress. Many people gain motivation by seeing how far they have come. Try using a calendar or spreadsheet to visualize your progress and review all your effort, especially when your motivation might be dwindling. Another great way to track your progress is a resolution journal.
  4. Learn and adapt. There may be challenges along the way to your goal. Instead of viewing relapses as failures, look at them as learning opportunities. By understanding the challenges, you can prepare better for the future.
