quality of life

Make the Right Resolutions
To help set yourself up for success this year, you should:
- Be selective with your resolutions. Instead of having too many goals, choose one or two things you want to focus on and give them your full attention.
- Make specific plans for your resolutions. Think about how you can achieve your goals and estimate the time it might take to reach them.
- Choose a new resolution. Avoid selecting a goal that you’ve tried and failed in the past. Starting fresh in the new year gives you a better chance of success.
- Seek support from others. Find a supportive community, whether it’s a friend, coach, or partner, who can help you stay motivated and accountable.
- Give your resolution time. It usually takes around 66 days for a new habit to form, so keep working towards your goal until it becomes a natural part of your routine.
