I’ll be honest with you guys, I don’t always succeed at my New Year’s resolutions. When I do I really do, but when I don’t, I don’t, I really don’t.
There are ways in which to change this though, and I’ve tried and tested a few. Here are five ways to make sure you keep your New Year’s resolutions:

1. Make a resolution you know you can keep Defocused shot of a woman tying her shoelaces in a gym

A few years ago I made the resolution to workout once in the new year. Stupidly doable, but I did it, and I did more. That was the year I started working out for real and ran a 10K. Set a goal you know you an meet and then go ahead and beat it.

2. Tell EVERYONE Cross training gym, exercising and focus concepts.

Accountability will get you everywhere. If you’re trying to eat less sugar, or go to the gym once a week, tell people and they’ll be sure to check in every now and then to see if you’re sticking to it.

3. Set the right goals 

Make sure you pick goals that will have a real impact on your health and happiness. Picking a goal you really care about that’s sure to make a difference means you’ll be more motivated.

4. Don’t write yourself off sexy woman lies with pizza on her face indoor, home interior

Most of us, when we fall off the wagon, throw our hands up and give up completely. Resist the temptation to quit when you slip up! Instead, pick yourself up and start again. It’s all about the comeback.

5. Write yourself notes Close up woman hand writing on notebook
