  • Find a buddy: Have a friend who has the same goal? Do it together and keep each other accountable. This way you can keep it fresh and fun and keep each other motivated.
  • Talk about it: Tell people close to you about your plans. This way you will have their support and they can keep you accountable if you start to slip. Give them permission to give you a kick up the bum (gently, of course!) when you need it most.
  • Make a solid plan: The problem with New Year resolutions is feeling really motivated at the beginning of the year, but failing to follow through as you slip back into the daily grind. Go back to your values — what’s really important and why does the outcome of you resolution mean so much to you? Be realistic and always mindful of the values behind the resolution plan. This will help you implement solid steps to ensure you follow through.

  • Be kind to yourself: No, you may not be able to twist yourself into Crow Pose in your yoga class, but give yourself credit for trying. Love and appreciate yourself for all the amazing things you do, and know that even those things take time and practice.
  • One thing at a time: Start small, you don’t need to try and do it all, especially in the first week. It’s overwhelming, and you’ll likely become so exhausted you’ll lose your motivation. Scale back that list of 15 resolutions, or try to focus on one for the month of January, then add the second in February.
  • Don’t follow what your family and friends are doing: Remember what they need is different to what you need. What they like may be very different to what you like. Focus on your unique body and nourish it accordingly.

  • Make it meaningful: Your New Year resolution has to really mean something to you personally. Most resolutions are generally about making some kind of change in your life, which will always include both sacrifice and action. If the resolution doesn’t mean enough to you, when it comes to sacrificing something in order to reach that goal, you won’t take the necessary action — it’s as simple as that.
  • Write it down: And leave it anywhere you’ll see it all the time, like the fridge, mirror even your computer screen. Little reminders of what you want to achieve can help to push you in the right direction if you’re getting off track.
  • Keep it positive: Try not to use the words “I don’t” or “I can’t” and use positive connotations like “I will” and “I can”.
