Let's face it. We've probably already lost sight of our New Year's Resolutions, and January isn't even over yet. That's what so hard about have resolutions that arbitrarily start on January 1st.


Instead of beating yourself up for already failing, think of your goals as a year-long process. You can gradually build up habits that get you to where you want to be throughout the year. It doesn't have to happen all at once, and you aren't a failure if you let your guard down one week.


The healthiest resolutions are ones that create healthy (and I'm not just talking about food and exercise) and maintainable habits in your life that stick. That's easier said than done. We've put together 5 simple things that you can do to get you to where you want to be at the end of the year.


1. Prioritize and choose goals that are worthwhile and achievable
Just because something seems like a good thing to do doesn't mean it's the right thing for you right now. What are your priorities? Is there one thing that you'd like to look back on in a year that you'd like to say you've achieved?

2. Write it down and be accountable
This is SUPER important. Most of us keep our goals in our heads. While that may seem fine, think about how many other things we hold in our brains. It's cluttered up there. Writing it down makes it both CLEAR and TANGIBLE. Write it in a place where you will see it often, like the lock screen on your phone.

3. Categorize your goals and be specific
Once you've written down your priorities and goals, you need to organize them. Organize them in whatever way makes sense to you. May I suggest The Home Edit as a method?

4. Set deadlines to accomplish your goals
You can't expect yourself to reach every goal and stick to a routine on day one. It takes at least a month to train a habit. Try one thing at a time or even part of a goal at a time. Break it down into small, bite-size chunks.

5. Reward yourself for accomplishment
Humans thrive on rewards. Give yourself a treat or something special every time you reach a milestone in achieving your goal. You'll set off a Pavlovian response that will make you even more eager to get to the next level of achieving your goals.
