You Can Be Successful With Resolutions
It's that time of year again. If you're thinking, "Nah... resolutions are pointless." You might want to listen today as I spotlight 10 reasons we set ourselves up for failure.
I personally started today (Sunday the 27th) filled with hope (and I share the "Stupid" thing I did to say goodbye to 20202).
We find time to brush our teeth, feed our kids, wash our clothes, we need to make ourselves a priority.
Don’t overthink it. You have things like reminders, tasks, stopwatches, to nudge you when you need it.
For tracking, I love cronometer. It’s cheaper than my fitnesspal, and I believe more accurate.
For tracking your progress, check out the Streaks app (on iOs) or the Habit Share App which is for both Ios and Android, and allows you to share your habits with an accountability partner.
Momentum Browser Plugin. https://momentumdash.com/ Keep your goals in front of you. Every time you open a new tab, your goal is in front of you. You can put in affirmations, link it to your Todoist account, and more. It even integrates with your Fitbit.
If you love challenges, I mentioned HealthyWage where you can pick your goal and time to achieve it. You pledge money to inspire you. If you don’t achieve your goal, you pay. If you do achieve your goal, you get your money and additional money. Who doesn’t want to lose weight and get paid?
If you want to challenge your friends there are tools like HealthyWage (although I’m not a fan of their lose 6% in 12 weeks types of setups as their 25% fee is a bit high for me). You can purchase my Weight Loss Competition Spreadsheet (similar to the biggest loser) for $10
Affirmations can help you rewire your brain and lose your negative attitude. I know it sounds “woo-woo” and I thought that for years. I now use them, and any time I start to fail, I always notice I’m not doing my affirmations. I love the Think Up App (both iOs and Android). You can try it for free.
If you need a “to do” list, I love todoist as you can have your todo list everywhere (phone, computer, tablet) and you can use it in your Gmail. Want to a reminder to email this person next week? It’s one click.
If your resolutions include anything about Money, I love YNAB (You Need A Budget)
Make Your Resolutions Work by:
Write down your goals
Break a large goal into smaller achievable parts
Track your progress daily
Make it public (if that works for you)
Create routines that support your goals
I'm looking forward to 2021 and I'm currently fired up and ready to go.
