The start of a new year is a chance to reflect and hit the reset button. But often, it’s not the goal that’s difficult. Rather, it’s sticking to it that causes people to fall off. There are two methods I’ve found to be helpful whenever I’m looking to accomplish a weight loss goal:
Write It Down
I like to write my resolutions down on paper and put them in a spot where I’m reminded of them each day. Individuals who physically write their goals down rather than commit them to memory are 42% more likely to achieve those resolutions.
People often ditch their goals if they’re too easy or far too difficult, so break down your resolutions into bite-sized targets to help you stick to them. I like to set myself a small goal each day of the week to help me achieve my resolutions for the month or year ahead.
