You’re not alone. According to statistics, 88% of people will fail to achieve their New Year’s resolutions – that’s almost 9 out of every 10 people. Let’s change this and build healthy habits that will last forever with these 5 steps:
1. Set positive goals: Rather than making your New Year resolutions restrictive, focus on positive actions. For example, frame it as “eat more nutritious foods” instead of “stop eating junk.”
2. Choose 1 to 3 everyday habits: Keep them simple and only choose a new one once you have accomplished the
first. Take it one step at a time.
3. Get specific and write them down: Make a list and paste it next to your night table. Note down “where,” “which days,” “time” and “how often.” For example, practice yoga on Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:30 at Prana Lounge.
4. Apply habit psychology: Try syncing your desired habit with an activity that you do everyday at the same time. If the habit you want to cultivate is drinking more water, drink a glass after waking up or just before going to sleep.
5. Brainstorm prevention: Think of what can go wrong and prepare to prevent any barriers by planning how you can overcome them ahead of time.
All the best!
