Setting Realistic New Year’s Resolutions

In this blog post, Olivia + Laura share how to set realistic New Year's resolutions for the year ahead.

As the clock strikes midnight and we flip the calendar to a shiny new year, there’s a buzz in the air – it’s the promise of fresh starts and optimism! Yep, it's time Tom jot down those New Year’s resolutions.

But let’s be real – we’ve all been down the road of grand intentions that fizzle out quicker than a firework on New Year’s Eve. We’re here to talk about the resolutions that are actually attainable and how to turn yours into realistic ones, instead of turning into forgotten goals.

In this blog post, we’ll dive into the art of setting goals. The journey to becoming the best version of yourself is like an epic rollercoaster, and these resolutions? They’re the thrilling twists and turns that’ll make this year one for the books.


1.Reflect on the Past Year

Before diving into new resolutions, take a moment to reflect on the past year. Celebrate your achievements, acknowledge challenges, and learn from experiences. This reflection sets the stage for setting resolutions that align with your personal growth.

2. Keep it Specific and Measurable

Vague resolutions like “get in shape” or “save money” lack clarity. Instead, opt for specific and measurable goals such as “exercise for 30 minutes three times a week” or “save $100 each month.” This allows you to track progress and stay motivated.

3. Start Small

Setting ambitious goals is admirable, but starting with smaller, manageable steps ensures a higher likelihood of success. As you achieve these milestones, gradually challenge yourself with more significant objectives.

4. Create a Realistic Timeline

Understand that change takes time. Establish a realistic timeline for your resolutions, considering the demands of your daily life. Break down long-term goals into shorter, achievable deadlines to maintain focus and motivation.

5. Seek Accountability

Share your resolutions with a friend, family member, or significant other who can provide support and encouragement. Having someone to share your progress with creates a sense of accountability and reinforces your commitment.

6. Be Adaptable

Life is unpredictable, and circumstances may change. Be flexible and willing to adjust your resolutions as needed. This adaptability ensures that setbacks won’t derail your overall progress.

Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination, so enjoy the process one achievable goal at a time.

Happy New Year!
