New Year, New You (That Actually Lasts!): Make Goals Stick with These Expert Tips


🎉 𝗡𝗲𝘄 𝗬𝗲𝗮𝗿, 𝗡𝗲𝘄 𝗚𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀! 🎉 Many of us make New Year’s resolutions yet most fizzle out faster than a sparkler on New Year’s Eve. ✨


Yes, our ability to achieve New Year’s resolutions can be disheartening 😱, however, it’s still a really good idea to make them😀. Why?


You’re turning the page, you have a clean slate, it’s a new beginning. Draw that mental line in the sand and say goodbye to habits that don’t serve you well with a ‘that was then, this is now’ mindset.

Being honest about who you are and intentional about how you want to change will help you move forward.

Setting a plan for the new year is inherently hopeful which can improve your outlook and motivate you to act.

You can substantially boost your motivation by changing how you frame your situation.


If you’re interested in making your New Year’s goals stick, read ⬇️ for tips from motivation experts.


Break it down into small achievable milestones with a short timeframe. Want to climb Mount Everest? Awesome! But maybe start with a hike up the local hill.

Accountability is the secret sauce! Grab someone to share the journey, celebrate wins, and laugh off the setbacks.

When you give advice to others on a similar issue you will also motivate yourself.

‘Walk 10,000 steps a day’ is more memorable and motivating than ‘walk a lot’ and you’ll be able to monitor your progress.

Studies have shown that framing goals around adopting a new habit are achieved more often than those framed around what you're giving up.

Make it FUN! Enjoyment is an immediate reward that will help you keep going. People who listen to a good audiobook while exercising, exercise more.

Every step is a victory! Celebrate even small achievements with a dance party, a fancy coffee, or a well-deserved fist pump.

Any journey worth pursuing includes successes and road bumps. Forgive the bumps, learn, adjust, smile, and keep going! The new year beckons!✨
