Documenting your journey can be very helpful when you feel discouraged. A journal can help you look at the past and see how much has changed. The progress should motivate you to continue that change!

 

Share your goals

Social media is a great way to make it known to friends, family, and spectators about your goals for this new year. Sharing your goals will hold you accountable for your actions and you will get support from everyone around you. So don’t be afraid to share your goals with everyone!  

 

Start Small!

Making big changes requires many baby steps to reach your goals. Big changes can be overwhelming which can make just about anyone give up easily. For example, if you are trying to lose weight maybe start focusing on cutting out sugary drinks from your diet for a month. Then the next month you could start counting your calories and so forth.

Keep Going!

It's important to understand that life is a journey and it’s ok to get off track sometimes. We aren’t robots! As long as we hop right back on track that's what really matters. Changing our behavior takes time. It takes 21 days to create a habit! So keep striving for 21 days to help create your goals into a habit.

 

Ask for Help!
