76% of New Year’s Resolutions Fail –
Here’s How to Save Them
Already feeling the pressure that New Years resolutions are fading further into the background and that your attention has moved on to other things? You’re not alone. According to YouGov, only 24% of Brits that make resolutions actually stick to them.
New Years resolutions are funny things. We set them in a blaze of enthusiasm, determined to turn ourselves into happier, healthier people – yet so often they end up making us feel worse, when our goals prove to be more unrealistic than optimistic.
If you want 2021 to be the year that you make and keep your resolutions, you need a strategy to maintain motivation and hold yourself accountable wether that be to care for your own wellbeing more, see more family, drink less or eat dare we say it, eat less chocolate. Here the experts at Pro Plus share their top tips and tricks to stick to your New Years Resolutions:
Set Achievable Goals
Too often, people set goals that are vague and unrealistic. Not only does this lead to frustration, but it also decreases the likelihood of achieving the goal. Whether they are professional or personal, try and set S.M.A.R.T goals, which are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Bound. This helps to make goals more realistic for lasting change.
Ask for Support
Don’t be afraid to open up and talk with those closest to you about what you’re working on to better yourself. You might just find someone on the same path who can help push you to that finish line of where you want to be this year. It is easier to reach your goals with a support group cheering you on along the way.
Boost Your Energy Levels
Accomplishing our goals takes time and motivation. But when our energy levels are low, it can be hard to get in that get-stuff-done mindset. Thanks to its caffeine kick, Pro Plus® relieves symptoms of fatigue and tiredness, helping you to feel more energised and focus on the task at hand. Pro Plus® are available to purchase from supermarkets and pharmacies nationwide.
Don’t be too hard on yourself
Above all, be kind to yourself and accept that sometimes, even when you’re armed with the most comprehensive plan, things might not go as we want them to – we’ll miss targets and fall shy of our expectations. But remember, that’s OK. Perfection is unattainable. Don’t give up completely because you ate a cookie and broke your diet, or skipped the gym because you were busy with work. Everyone has ups and downs; resolve to recover from your mistakes and get back on track.
