How to Stay Motivated: 5 Tips to Keep Your Resolutions

Jan 15, 2020, 01:00 AM

So, you made a few New Year’s resolutions? How are they coming along? Are you starting to wonder if these new goals are worth the trouble now that we’re a few weeks in? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Achieving these goals takes a lot of hard work and a daily dose of motivation. Not to mention, your chances of success will greatly improve if you have some help along the way. Here are a few powerful motivational tips to help you stay on track to achieving your goals this year: 

1. Slash your to-do list in half. Cutting your aggressive to-do list in half will allow for success. Knowing your list is realistic is empowering, which will help you stay motivated. 

2. Celebrate the little wins, no matter how small. Little wins may seem like just that – little and slightly insignificant. However, celebrating these wins can help you create positive habits. Save your first $100 as part of your savings plan? Celebrate by taking part in a small splurge! Squeeze in a workout 2 days in a row? Guess what? Celebrate a little by indulging in your favorite dessert!

3. Find inspiring people to follow on social media. Whether you want to lose weight, save money, or learn a new skill, there are others who have already achieved this and can serve as inspiration for you. Go to Instagram or Twitter and do a quick search for relevant hashtags and you’ll find plenty of inspiring people to follow. You can even go to YouTube and subscribe to relevant channels.

4. Motivate someone else. When you are feeling discouraged or let down, focus on helping someone else. Chances are, you will feel the same effect almost immediately.

5. Look your excuses in the eye. It’s easy to justify not doing something by creating an excuse. Look at your excuses straight on. For example, are you too tired to work out, or do you just want to watch the newest season of your favorite T.V. show? Be honest with yourself and go from there.
