How to Get Your Resolutions Done Next Year

2017 is just around the corner and with every New Year comes a new set of resolutions. This post is all about putting your goals into action, because I think we can all agree that writing them out is the easy part. Getting them done is where the real challenge lies. Here are a couple of ways you can make next year the year of achievement! Here's to a great 2017! 

Review Them on a Regular Basis
Don't lose sight of what you want to achieve. If you keep refreshing yourself on your goals, you'll feel more connected and committed to them. Keep your resolutions where you know you'll be able to see them at least once a day. You could put your them on post it notes around your room or write them down at the front of a daily diary/journal. I would definitely suggest using pen and paper to record your resolutions rather than typing them out on a computer or phone as they're more likely to stick in your mind. 

Take it Slow And Steady
The great thing about New Years' resolutions is that you have a whole 365 days to complete them. You can't rush success so don't stress if you don't get the results you want straight away. Sometimes it helps to break the resolution down into several smaller goals. That way you can maintain that motivation by checking off your smaller goals while striving for the big resolution. Remember, slow progress is still progress so don't be too hard on yourself if you're still not where you want to be.

Stay Positive
Make sure you're in the right headspace when reviewing your goals because if you start looking at them in a negative way, they'll feel further and further out of your reach. If you're struggling to keep up with your resolutions, switch your mindset. Instead of focusing on the end goal, visualise your life after the resolution has been complete and what sort of benefits this accomplishment will bring. 

Reward Your Accomplishments
As you work towards your resolution, don't forget to treat yourself to a little gift or day out for all the little achievements you make along the way. Plan a nice reward for the end of the year just to recognise the goals you completed. And if you don't manage to tick everything off by the time December rolls around, that's okay! That fact that you were willing to make a change in the first place is definitely something to be proud of. 

What resolutions do you have for 2017?
