Kick-Start Your New Year: Stay Motivated

January 31, 2011 | By | Comments (0)


If you've already made it this far with your new year's resolutions, you've held out a lot longer than most people. To keep your good habits going strong in February and the following months, try these strategies to keep you motivated.


1. Anticipate bumps and challenges in your plan. Don't let the unexpected derail your goals. Make back up plans so you won't get off track.


2. Channel the little engine that could. You'll be surprised how far belief in yourself can take you.


3. Set realistic goals, and work on them everyday. Don't set yourself up to fail by setting goals that are too high. Instead, set smaller goals on your way to one larger achievement and focus on how you can reach those goals each day.


4. Make your goals public. That way you're not the only one holding yourself accountable. If you tell your friends and family, they'll help keep you on track, too.
