New Year’s Resolution Check-In

It has been less than three weeks since we welcomed in 2012 but it’s already National Ditch Your Resolution Day! We hope you’re still working toward yours (after using our easy guide on how to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions, of course) but just in case you’re struggling, we thought we’d check in on you and bring a little motivation!
When working towards your New Year’s Resolution, keep in mind three things:

1) Don’t forget that these things take time. About.com wants to make sure that we “Remember that Change is a Process”. It’s only been a few weeks, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re not seeing changes immediately. Your resolution is not a sprint; it’s a day-to-day improvement that will only get better – and easier – over time.

Keep motivation close by!

2) Remember the reason behind the resolution. When you find yourself slacking on your goal, remind yourself why you chose this resolution. Once you remember why it was important to you in the first place, your motivation will be renewed.

3) Think positive. It’s easy to start to feel negative once the initial motivation behind the resolution fades, but positive thinking can be one of your best assets. Whether you develop a personal mantra or think of an inspirational quote, do what you can to keep a positive outlook.

Remember these three pieces of advice and you’ll be a Resolution-Breaker no more! Do you have a special way of keeping yourself motivated? Share it with us below!
