The New Year’s celebrations have come and gone, and it’s time to start working on those resolutions you set for yourself last year. But where to begin? StorQuest has you covered. Here are five easy hacks that will help you commit to and conquer your goals for 2020.
Make a List
Before you slip on those running shoes and hit the trails, it’s helpful to write everything down. The act of listing your resolutions is not only a great way to stay organized, but it will help you commit to the pledges you’ve made to yourself. The trick is to be specific. If possible, make your objectives measurable. Give yourself mini milestones to achieve so that bigger goals have multiple points of success for you to celebrate.
Keep Track of Your Wins
All wins, big and small, matter – and it’s essential to keep track of them. Logging your successes reminds you of all the hard work you’ve put in on the way to meeting your ultimate goal. If you keep a physical journal, the object itself can serve as a time capsule. That way you can review your wins anytime. Reflecting on how far you’ve come can motivate you to keep moving forward.
Set Up Routines
If your resolution is something tangible like working toward running a marathon or even something as simple as getting outside every day, why not make it part of your early morning routine? Starting your day by hitting a goal is not only a surefire way of committing to your resolutions – it’ll also set you on the right course to accomplishing other awesome things throughout your day.
If mornings aren’t your thing, do it on your lunch break or in the evening. Pick a time you can find a permanent place on your schedule. Once an activity becomes a normal part of your routine, it is something you won’t even have to think about. You’ll just do it!
Sometimes your most Instagram-worthy accomplishments should be kept special, reserved for your eyes only. Take the time to disconnect occasionally. Turn off your phone. By focusing all your energy on you, you’ll find your senses renewed. You’ll be ready to take on the greatest challenges you’ve set for yourself.
Have Compassion for Yourself
Slip-ups happen. Dwelling too long on a minor blunder does you no good. The best thing you can do is to acknowledge the mistake, figure out what may have caused a misstep, forgive yourself, and move on. When you do finally get back on the right track, reward yourself. You deserve it!
