Grace For New Year’s Resolutions

by Lauren Gooch - January 6, 2021

Nearly half of us are making New Year’s resolutions, but less than 10 percent* of us are keeping them. There are many reasons for this, but the following five make sense for all of us. 1. We are not ready to change 2. We lack self-monitoring, 3. We fail to plan 4. Overconfidence 5. Not looking at what has to be given up

Here’s a different perspective on New Year’s Resolutions – try scheduling them for the NEXT year, and think of this year as a time to try it out and practice getting yourself into the routine of doing it. Throughout the year, you may discover what motivates you and what makes you lose motivation. Knowing yourself better will help you overcome these challenges in the future.

It takes on average, about 2 months** for something to become a habit for us, so if you’re feeling discouraged about your New Year’s resolutions, it’s okay! Give yourself the time (and grace) to make these habits a regular part of your routine.

Another helpful tip is to remember WHY you’re doing something. Sometimes we become so focused on doing things and setting and achieving goals, that we forget WHY we decided to do them in the first place. Maybe we want to be healthier, or like Sara, want to be on time as a form of respect for others. In any case, remembering the WHY behind your tasks can help you motivate yourself to do them.

Being honest and humble about both the good and the not-so-good things that happen in our days can help us realistically keep ourselves and our goals in check.

So, Sara and Lauren would like to encourage you to keep going! Stay on target! And, be patient and loving to yourselves as you try to make a positive change in your life. Happy New Year from all of us at The Home Page Network!
