How do we keep this from happening? What’s the best way to stay on track for a healthier, happier 2015?
Make your resolutions stick by making them SMART and writing them down! SMART is an acronym that outlines a great way to form a goal. Following the smart guidelines will make your goal more attainable and help keep you on track to reaching it!
#2 Measurable: Adding a number or amount to a resolution makes it more tangible. It also gives you a firm endpoint or milestone to reach before you feel like your goal is accomplished. Losing weight is a great example. Setting the goal to lose weight without a measurable component (pounds or inches) keeps the resolution vague and easy to toss aside. Once you’ve lost a single pound, you’ve technically reached your goal. Saying ‘I will lose 15 pounds” not only gives you a milestone to reach, but keeps you focused until you reach it.
