Here we are once again looking a new year in the eyes. Is it just us or does anyone else feel like we were just celebrating the beginning of 2019? With the new year comes the common idea of New Year Resolutions. BUT, Psychology Today cites that 80% of resolutions fail by February! At RE/MAX Ultra we believe in setting you up for success and helping you live your best life. Here are a few ideas to help you take action for a successful new year.
A resolution is a large idea or firm decision to do something, where a goal is a resolution in action. Maybe you’re looking to get healthy this year or focus on your finances. These are great resolutions, but how can you set up small goals to achieve these objectives? So glad you asked!
When you choose your resolution, it can be overwhelming to decide where to start, which is why most tend to fade after the new year gets started. Setting small, achievable goals is a great place to start.
If you’ve decided to focus on your health this year, great for you! Sit down and think of one small thing you can take out of your week. Do you stop by the local coffee shop every day? Cut that down to just once a week. Do you go out for lunch? Pack something to bring instead. Maybe the gym overwhelms you and you don’t know where to begin, that’s okay! Start with a brisk walk on the treadmill.
Honing in on your finances so you can apply for that house loan? Awesome! Luckily, we live in a day and age where technology is at our fingertips. There are many apps out there to help you keep track of spending and cut down on extra purchases. Take advantage of these. And when you’re ready to apply for that loan or start house shopping, contact us at RE/MAX Ultra!
Is self care your focus this year? Way to go! For many of us, it’s hard to make ourselves a priority. Sit down with your schedule and see where you can carve out 15 or 30 minutes for yourself. Grab a book, listen to a podcast, take a walk around the neighborhood. You deserve it!
Who doesn’t like marking things off? Focusing on small achievable goals will help you reach the overall resolution. Keen in on the small goals this year and you’re already set up to make a huge difference in your life.
We at RE/MAX Ultra wish you a Happy New Year. We’d love to hear your new year’s resolution and small goals you’re setting for yourself this year. Head over to our Facebook or Instagram and leave a comment to let us know!
