Setting New Year’s Resolutions

With the year dwindling to a close, many people are engaging in self-reflection.
They are thinking about all of the things they have accomplished and what
more they could have done. Many will reflect on issues relating to self-control,
such as weight loss or kicking an old habit, like smoking. However, New
Year’s resolutions could extend even beyond struggles such as this.
For example, they could even extend to saving money by finding solutions
to your high bill payments.These 5 tips will help with setting your New
Year’s resolutions, now all you have to do is stick to it!


Make A List of Goals You Want To Achieve in 2017

Reflect for a moment on the changes you would like to occur in your everyday
life. A high bill payment is not usually on the list of New Year’s
resolutions. But high bills will impact your overall stress and happiness.
As you are creating your list, think of electricity and water usage and
how they could be reduced through making conscious decisions in your home.
There is power in making a list. It will make your resolutions real.

Once you have an idea of the changes you would like to occur, make a list of goals.

Categorize Them By Time And Importance

Once you have your list, categorize your goals by time and importance.
Some of your goals may not be pressing, but that does not mean that you
should push them aside. Rank them by the amount of time they will take
to achieve and when it would be appropriate to begin each one.

Set REALISTIC Goals that are not too Easy to Achieve

By tackling harder tasks first, it will give you the confidence you need
to tackle smaller tasks. Set realistic goals, but be sure they are challenging,
so everything after is a cinch!

An unrealistic resolution will leave you with a feeling of futility. But
a goal that is too easy might yield the same result. Strike a proper balance.

Keep The List Where You Will See It Daily2017

Ensure that you have a constant reminder of your goals. Perhaps you could
hang a whiteboard in your living room or on the refrigerator. It will
help remind you of your commitment to yourself and encourage you to stick
to the list.

Refer to the List Weekly to Check Off Goals

Have you reduced your energy consumption? Exercised more frequently? Deposited
more into your savings account? Check it off the list. If you make a habit
of referring to the list, you will not forget about it. Remember to revisit
the list weekly, to find out if you’ve been naughty or nice.
