How to trick yourself to keep your new year’s resolutions

We all know, well and true, that after the first few weeks (or months) of the new year that our inspiration starts to dwindle and the goals we were once so determined to accomplish are placed at the back of our mind.


Don’t make your goals to vague; i.e. Eat healthy, exercise, meditate, don’t get us wrong these are fantastic goals, however they are too vague, and we will need to go deeper to find an engagement with these goals.  Start to consider how doing these things will make us feel and how the accomplishment you will feel with yourself.  Sticking to vague resolutions is hard as they don’t make us feel anything until we have achieved them, don’t get caught up on focusing of the things you haven’t done and understand that any small accomplishment towards this goal is progress.


The trick to creating internally motivated resolutions/goals is to firstly consider how you’d like to feel first and then create resolutions based on those feelings.  A fantastic idea is to have a big brainstorm of all the emotions you would like to feel in 2016 (happy excited, nervous, inspired, love, success, adventure, peace, wealth) and narrow the list down to the 5 that are most important to you.

Use these words to help you create your resolutions and write down the mini goals you will achieve to work towards your resolution.


Eg; wanting to loose weight, mini goal ; exercise for at least 30 minutes 6 days a week.

Our weight loss programs are an amazing tool to help facilitate any weight loss goals.
