Resolution Retention Strategies: How to set realistic new years resolutions and keep them! [NOOK Book]

Overview

Too frequently the trend in our society is for individuals to be detached from one another. Automobiles have taken us off the streets, where we used to greet each other and stop to chit chat.

Too frequently the trend in our society is for individuals to be detached from one another. Automobiles have taken us off the streets, where we used to greet each other and stop to chit chat. Cubicles have removed a bit of the humanity in working, as have factories and even computers to some extent. Television has planted us firmly in our living rooms, instead of out with other people. Even movie theaters, where many people get together, cut us off from true conversation because we’re staring at a big screen. You could also add to the list cell phones and social networks. It takes away from face o face conversation.

Reasonable Resolutions
Around the holidays and especially during New Year's, everybody announces a resolution that he or she plans on keeping. Only, a couple individuals actually do. We have all had our own encounters with some far-reaching, unrealistic goals: lose twenty pounds in six weeks, pay back all our credit card debt by the spring, never eat chocolate again…you name it.
This time around, try setting goals that are realistic and reasonable. Check into some resolution ideas that are simple to both manage and keep. Come year's end, not only will you've achieved a goal or two, you will not find yourself where you started last year—at square one!
Set goals that are reasonable and they'll be easier to keep. For instance, are you washing clothes? Brushing your teeth? Doing the dishes? Use cold water instead. It is one of the easiest and most efficient household changes you are able to incorporate toward your resolution. It takes a lot of energy to heat water. Cutting back on the amount used means big savings, not only on your energy bills, but also in carbon dioxide emissions. You'll be saving your wallet and the planet.
Instead of making a laundry list of promises to yourself, try picking just a few. If your resolution is to boost your health, try starting a single new healthy habit. Focus on it and practice it until it becomes a regular habit. For example, tell yourself that you'll drink 5-8 glasses of water a day, climb 50 stairs, and eat at least three servings of fruits and vegetables. This way, you will be able to channel your efforts into a single task, and will not get overwhelmed in the process.

Dedicate at least one night a month to spoil yourself. We all can use a good treat every at times. Treating yourself to something you enjoy is both fulfilling and relaxing. Give yourself a home facial, paint your fingernails and toenails, and take a long bath with bubbles and relaxing music, whatever you like. Just make certain to set aside time to do the things that relax you the most. You will feel recharged and rejuvenated in doing so!
Also, we can all afford to spend more time with loved ones. Make it a priority to set aside certain times throughout the week for friends and loved ones. Set up a night during the week to play board games with your kids.
Organize social activities with your friends that all parties enjoy: going out to eat, cooking a meal together, watching a movie, or jogging. Making the commitment to dedicate time to family shows your appreciation for them.
Remember, when setting resolutions, the goal should be to try to make them measurable, achievable, and realistic. So go ahead, set, plan, act, and stick to it this year. You can do it!

Setting Goals
The top New Year's resolutions are often tied to acquiring healthier habits and do not change much from year to year. Yet most individuals desert their resolve within weeks although they really would like to improve.
When it comes to New Year's resolutions, the inherent problem lies within the name. A resolution means to resolve to do something. It is a promise to yourself. Unfortunately, it does not include any plans or goals to make the change happen. To accomplish success pick out a set of goals and make plans to reach those goals.
Before stating the goal, write the desired result then consider what steps could help attain it. Work out if money, supplies, or tools are necessary. Have in mind what particular action can be taken to accomplish the resolution.
Think about how much time can be scheduled each day or every week towards working at the goal and what would be sensible to complete in those time slots. Every item necessary can be part of the greater goal, with a plan to save or obtain it. When making the list, choose a couple of activities or ...
