2020 was hard, to say the least, and while we’re all hoping for a better 2021, it’s important to be realistic in the world we currently live in. However, With a brand new year comes to brand new goals and in 2021 … it’s time to put those New Year resolutions into practice.
Yes, we know every year we make them and don’t keep them. That’s why usually the gym crowds surge in January and are empty by February and why we never do lose the weight we promised we would. Sometimes, it almost feels like resolutions are made to be broken but here at BlockSite, we think differently.
We believe that resolutions are good, productive ways to set goals and intentions for the new year and make positive changes, which is especially important after the challenging year we have all just experienced.
Sometimes the problem lies in the unrealistic resolutions we make. We need to start doing a better job of making resolutions that are attainable, otherwise, it’s almost like setting yourself up for failure.
Therefore, if you want to set yourself up for the best chance of success, start by using the tips below to make better resolutions you can actually stick to.
How do you create a New Year’s Resolution?
If you’re looking to make a change in your life, you need to be realistic and think if it’s actually doable before throwing yourself into it. For example, if you want to run a marathon but you’re currently not working out and get out of breath while walking upstairs – running a marathon may be out of the question for the new year or bound to fail. However, you can resolve to walk every day in this instance and once you have that down, you can graduate to running in short bursts, then constant running, and then running the marathon the following year.
Additionally, when making a resolution, make sure it’s something concrete so you know exactly what change you’re planning on making. If you’re successful with the first change, you can make another change after a month or so. By making small changes one after the other, you still have the chance to be a whole new you by the end of the year.
