  • Set goals SMART: Specific, Measurable achievable, relevant and Time-bound. This framework will help you to remain grounded in reality, increasing your chances of success.
  • Faith in the power of tiny steps: You don’t have to change everything over night. Start small with manageable, consistent actions. Be proud of each little moment, however insignificant it may appear as, and see your progress increase.
  • Be flexible and embrace iteration: Life throws curveballs. Be prepared to change your resolutions if necessary. Do not hesitate to alter or eliminate a resolution if you feel it is too complicated or doesn’t fit your preferences.

Beyond the Individual: Resolving problems involving ripple consequences

Our resolutions don’t just need to impact our personal lives. It is possible to use this time to send positive ripples outward. Consider volunteering to help your community or to support a cause you are passionate aboutIt is also possible to show to daily acts of kindness and compassion by committing yourself to acts of kindness. Every little thing you do can have an impact on your environment.
