New Year, New You: Five Steps To Staying On Track by Peighton Noel

 The New Year has always been a time of change. The year is changing, and so is everyone else.

  The “New Year, New You” mindset can be a hard one to stick to. Leaving a resolution unfinished happens far too often.
  How does one stick to keeping a grasp on a resolution? That’s a tough question.
  First, it is important that you figure out who you are making all of these changes for. If the answer isn’t yourself, maybe you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.
  Happiness is the most important necessity. If this resolution was created based on the other people’s opinions about you, rethink it. It’s completely okay to be selfish when it comes to your happiness.
  Next, you need to make sure your resolution is realistic. Sticking with something you have doubts about from the beginning may be harder than something you know you are completely capable of.
  Lastly, you need to stay aware of everything you do relating to the resolution. For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, pay attention to what you eat. If you want to be happier, pay attention to who you talk to, your approach on things, and how you react to situations.

  Holding onto a resolution doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems. Just make sure you’re ready to be dedicated and making changes for yourself.
