Ever noticed how January’s good intentions have a way of turning into July’s forgotten resolutions?
This midyear, resolve to recommit to your health goals. By tweaking your resolutions based on what you learned from earlier attempts, you’ve got a better shot at actually achieving them.
2nd of July Resolutions
When you think about it, January 1 may be the worst possible day of the year for making resolutions. Sure, there’s poetic appeal to the notion of a fresh start at the beginning of a new year. But in reality, most of us hit the last day of the holiday stress fest feeling frazzled, fatigued and possibly hungover—not exactly at our best for focused behavior change.
With half a year behind you, it’s possible to look back and see where your New Year’s resolutions went awry.
If you made New Year’s resolutions that didn’t turn out quite the way you planned, now’s your chance to review and revise. This time around:
1. Try, try again.
Yes, you tried before and failed, but that only means you’re like 60% of other people who made resolutions six months ago. It’s okay; you’re normal. Cut yourself some slack.
2. Pick one goal—not two, not three.
Focus on one thing at a time, and give it your full attention. Once you’ve achieved your current goal, you can start thinking about your next one.
3. Make it personal.
Your partner, your best friend and everyone at the office may really, really want you to quit smoking. But until you want it, too, your quit attempt is unlikely to succeed. Be sure you’ve chosen a goal that you want to accomplish for yourself, not just to satisfy others.
To Your Prosperity,
