Happy New Year!

If you’re hoping to turn over a new leaf in 2019, you’re in good company!

Sixty-eight percent of people start the new year with at least one resolution in mind: to eat healthier, exercise more, spend less money, or perform better self-care being the four most popular resolutions. However, thirty-five percent of people who make New Year’s resolutions break them by the end of January, and a mere twenty-three percent will actually achieve their resolution by the end of the year. The most common reasons for breaking our resolutions are over-commitment, unrealistic goal-making, and difficulty staying motivated and accountable. To achieve your resolution, be sure to share it with friends and family to increase accountability, and make your goal realistic and achievable.

Try phrasing your resolution as a SMART goal, which is:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

For example, instead of having a resolution to “exercise more”, make your goal SMART by saying that you will do “thirty minutes of cardio or weight lifting, three times a week”. This goal is measurable, realistic, and specific.
