New Year Resolution Ideas 2018

When the clock strikes midnight the confetti falls and a familiar hum can be heard throughout the night: “New Year’s resolutions.” The appeal of self-improvement as well as new beginnings takes hold when the calendar shifts to 2024. But amidst the flurry of detox and gym memberships programs, it’s important to ask: are these resolutions just a fleeting promise that are destined for the ashes of forgotten goals and goals, or can we turn them into meaningful blueprints to improve our lives?

The Resolution Paradox – Why do they fail so Many Times?

The numbers are grim. An alarming 80% (according to certain studies) of resolutions for the new year are broken within the first month. Why? We can be seduced into declaring grandiose statements and rushing fixes. We vow to fight negative habits and set high-risk goals without a specific plan or plan for implementation. Discontent and frustration are the result of failureThis leads us to go back to the old habits frustrated and disillusioned.

Reframing Resolution from Gimmicks To Growth Mindset

Resolutions should not be viewed as a list of stifling goals. Instead they should be seen as a means to attain an intentional process of growth. The key lies in shifting our focus away from the final result to the process itself. Instead of chasing after a chiseled figure, focus on building healthy habits for eating and exercising daily. Instead of taking on the task of learning a new tongue overnight, commit yourself to regular practice and be grateful for the little victories you win on the way.

From aspiration to actionCreating sensible resolutions

It requires a mix of reflection, pragmatism and self-reflection to come up with effective resolutions. Here are a few tips to assist you along your way:

  • Identifying Your Core ValuesWhat is most important to you? Are they connection, creativity or personal growth? Aligning resolutions to your values will give you an objective and increases motivation.
  • SetSMART Goals. Specific and Measurable. Doable. Relevant. Time-bound. This framework provides a roadmap to help you achieve your goals that keep them to reality, and increasing your odds of success.
  • Faith in the power of tiny steps: You don’t have to transform your life completely overnight. Start small and manageable steps you can develop. Celebrate each small milestone, regardless of how tiny it might seem, and watch your progress increase.
  • Be flexible and iterate: The world throws curveballs. Be willing to alter your resolutions if needed. Do not hesitate to alter or eliminate a resolution if you find it too difficult or doesn’t fit your needs.
