60-Day Checkup! How Are Your New Year’s Resolutions Progressing?
Have you gotten off track or allowed your New Year’s resolutions to slip to the wayside? Here are some ways to stoke your enthusiasm and get back on track:
- Forget the guilt; instead, jump back in to working toward your goals.
- Do a check: Was the goal too big or was it unrealistic? If so, pare the size or degree of required effort. For example, instead of exercising every day, make it your goal to exercise three or four days per week.
- Journal about your progress. These written reflections are proven devices to help you maintain momentum.
- Record your voice on a small, inexpensive pocket recorder enthusiastically and excitedly acting as though you have accomplished your goal. Play this recording regularly, and use it to motivate yourself to remain in a state of anticipatory excitement about achieving it.
- Get going!
