Some experts believe the failure to succeed with a resolution may be because we don’t have a game plan. But the following tips will help start the new year with a strategy to maintain a healthy goal.
Be committed, yet realistic
Dedication is an important driving force in keeping you on track of your resolution. However, unrealistic goals, such as being able to run a marathon after two weeks of training, can easily burst your spirit. Make sure your resolution is reasonable.
Make it easy
Though maintaining your resolution can be hard, there might be a tool that makes it easier to accomplish. For example, you can fulfill a resolution to practice good oral care with a new electric toothbrush that takes 40 seconds or less to use.
