With the turn of the new year many people will be making plenty of resolutions to stick to, or break in many cases. A lot of resolutions cover quitting smoking, exercising more, eating healthier and coping with life’s stresses more effectively.
Unfortunately people will make these and then break them without a second thought. A pointless promise.
What you wanted to begin with has ended when you truly wanted success! I have compiled a few tips on sticking to new years resolutions and to help you with them.
It is a good thing to know what triggers you to quit your resolution, for example if being around other smokers will only tempt you to smoke again, you should try your best to avoid being around other smokers. You should try and work out what could trigger you into breaking your resolution and then intervening when you know you possibly could and also you should plan alternative coping ways.
Sometimes it is best to look to the past for mistakes, to see where you have went wrong and then make sure you dont make the same mistake again. Looking to the past will aid you in sticking to your resolutions.
Always reward yourself at regular intervals with a rewarding activity or by doing something you enjoy. This will help to keep you motivated in sticking to your resolutions.Planning for Stress
Make sure to plan ahead and try and know when you may be highly stressed and break your resolutions. Plan how you will cope with the stressful situation.
I hope these tips may come in handy for those with a new years resolution.
Happy New Year and all the best for 2009, UTF Team.
