2018 – It’s a New Year

It’s January 2018.  It’s a new year which can also bring new changes to your life.  Many of you want to set goals for this year.  No matter how old you are, who you are or where your from you’re probably going to set goals and work seriously hard to achieve those goals.  Maybe some of those goals include running a marathon, spending more time with family and friends, reaching or even exercising for the first time.  So what does it take to reach those goals?  What does it take to ensure that you will follow through with your goals?  You have to do more than want to achieve them.  In most cases, realizing your ambitions will require a series of lifestyle changes.  Here are a few tips to achieving your New Years goals and resolutions.

  1.  Make a list – Determine what your goals are and write them down.  Brainstorm what changes you need to make to accomplish those goals.  Put the list in a spot where you can see it daily.
  2. Wake up early – Setting that alarm for earlier than normal will help you work towards achieving those goals.  The house is quiet with no distractions so you will find the extra time beneficial.  It will be hard at first, but eventually your body will be programmed to waking up early.
  3. Utilize the weekends – Weekends are important to recharge your body and mind from the hectic week.  Don’t let the time be wasted though.  Use your time effectively and efficiently.
  4. Do not procrastinate – When things are difficult to do we tend to just put them off.  Try the 15 minute rule:  set a timer for 15 minutes and commit to working on achieving those goals.  After time you may realize that you are spending more than just the 15 minutes.

May the year 2018 bring happiness to you and your family.  Remember to set those goals, work hard to accomplish them and you can have a successful and prosperous 2018!  Happy New Year!!
