10 Ways to Stick to Your Resolution All Year Long

1 Feb, 2019 Ryan Anderson Fluid Culture

Many of you probably made a resolution or two at the beginning of the year. So how are those resolutions going now? Hopefully you’re still on track and your resolution is becoming a habit and starting to stick.

But if instead you’ve fallen off the wagon already, you’re in good company. Statistics show that within two weeks of creating a resolution, nearly half of well-meaning resolution makers have thrown in the towel and accepted defeat. By the end of the year, 92% of us have been knocked down for the count. Resolutions are brutal little mongrels.

So what are the top ten resolutions of 2019? According to a YouGov poll, these are the most common aspirations for the coming year and it’s likely that one of these may look familiar to you.

  1. Exercise more
  2. Eat healthier
  3. Save money
  4. Lose weight
  5. Reduce stress
  6. Stick to a budget
  7. Get more sleep
  8. Spend more time with family
  9. Learn a new skill
  10. Travel more

All of these look like great goals for the coming year. It’s a shame that so many of these will be neglected and forgotten so quickly. But there are a few things we can do to up the chance of success. According to a well thought out article written by Brad Zomick on GoSkills, there are 10 steps that will increase the likelihood of sticking to your goals for the new year.

  1. Mentally prepare for change
  2. Set a goal that motivates you
  3. Limit resolutions to a manageable amount
  4. Be specific
  5. Break up big goals into smaller goals
  6. Write down your goals
  7. Share your resolutions with others
  8. Automate where possible
  9. Review your resolution regularly
  10. If you fall off track, get back on quick

So, I wish you the best of luck as you fight the good fight to make the resolutions you’ve set become second nature. It’s definitely worth the effort.
