Make the right New Year’s resolution for you

We might have already hit mid-January, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to come up with a New Year’s resolution. And no, you don’t just have to settle for that old, clichéd nonsense you’ve tried – and failed – to stick to in years gone by. (Let’s face it, no one’s finding the motivation to follow a boring ‘New Year’s diet’ for 12 whole months.) If you want to get the most out of 2019, make a resolution that’s exciting, achievable and tailor-made for you by following these top tips:


Really think about what you want.

Don’t make a resolution because you feel pressured into it. Make a resolution because it’s going to help you achieve something you really want. Finally realise your dream of learning a new instrument, growing your own fruit and veg or travelling the globe.

Make it realistic and measurable.

Be clear about what exactly you want to achieve. It’s all good saying you want to learn a whole new language, but how will you tell when you’re doing well if you’re not more specific about your goal? Set yourself small, realistic targets (like mastering so many words each week) that you must try. That way you’ll know when you’re on the right track. You’ll find more motivation with each small target you hit too.

Seek inspiration from the best.

Take inspiration from the 5 Best New Year’s Resolutions according to Power Spins. They’ve put together plenty of cool ideas like making more time for fun and hitting the gym. Don’t just take theses resolutions as they are though. Tailor them to make the goal specific to you and your life.
