5 Tips to Keep a New Year's Resolution

December 30, 2013

It’s that time of year again, time to write down your New Year’s resolutions! Most common resolutions are quit bad habits, fit into your skinny jeans, and save money to buy a new vehicle.

I know that keeping a resolution alive throughout the year can be difficult. For example, saving your money to buy a new vehicle can be quite hard when you want those new shoes. That is why I made some quick tips about how to keep a resolution.

Tip #1. Put some thought into it. Make sure that this year you will accomplish something you really want to get done. Don’t let other people persuade you, make it your own.

Tip #2. Write it down. Most years I completely forget what I wanted to accomplish. If you write it down, either in a journal or a calendar, then you are more likely to remember your resolution.

Tip #3. Make a plan. It’s hard to finish a goal without some form of steps to achieve it. If you are trying to save money for a new car, then budget your money so you can afford it. Start by saving x amount of dollars from your paychecks each month.

Tip #4. Carry it out. This is the hard part, but also the fun part. Try not to skip a month, week, or day of your resolution. Try your hardest, and you will gain the reward.

Tip #5. Reward yourself. If it’s buying a new car, make that day a special one! Facebook, Instagram, and tweet to everyone that you accomplished your goal!

What are some of your New Year’s resolutions?
