Setting an Effective New Year’s Resolution

Published on December 20th, 2019

Whether you’re trying to leave poor eating, spending, or fitness habits behind in 2019, the beginning of 2020 might feel like a fresh start for you. It’s a great idea to set a New Year’s resolution for yourself, but sticking to your goal is sometimes easier said than done. In fact, one-third of New Year’s resolutioners don’t make it past the end of January. Here are a few tips for setting your New Year’s Resolution, from your Chiropractor in Chicago.

Be Specific.

Setting a goal like “I want to lose weight” is not going to be nearly as effective as “I want to lose 5 pounds in the next two months.” No matter what your goal is, creating a clear New Year’s resolution with a specific time frame is more likely to keep you on track.

Make it Measurable.

While this is obvious if your goal involves standing on a scale for weight loss, it’s also important if your goal is non-weightloss related. For example, keep a log of classes you attend at your Chiropractor in Chicago or download an app to keep track of your nutrition and eating habits. Logging progress into a journal or an app can reinforce behaviors to keep you on track.

Make it Achievable.

Trying to take too big of a step too fast can leave you feeling frustrated or discouraged. It is often unrealistic to become a vegan overnight or to save up enough money to retire in five years at the age of 30. Cutting out different meats one at a time or saving an extra $100/month is a better course of action.
