Wiping the slate clean of 2022, this year is the perfect time to create new habits, complete your resolutions and become a new you.
New trends in fashion, home décor, health, and beauty will be waiting for you right around the corner.
2023 is a year of reflection, things we wish we had known one year ago to become a better you. 2023 is a year for growth, to complete the resolutions we wish we did. This year, stop the cycle of resolving to make a change and then not following through.
Here are 10 tips for the New Year New You!
- BE REALISTIC
Creating unattainable resolutions for your lifestyle is the surest way to fall short of your goals. Start small. Conquering smaller goals and completing them will push you toward those bigger resolutions you have been thinking about for years.
- PLAN AHEAD
Don’t make your resolutions on New Year’s Eve after you pop the champagne. If you wait until the last minute, your resolution will be based on the mindset of that day.
- OUTLINE YOUR PLAN
The temptation to bail on your resolution happens more often than you think. Decide how you will deal with those temptations whether its practicing positive thinking or reminding yourself of your end goal.
- WRITE IT DOWN
Writing out your goal and a list to complement why you want to complete it will help you contribute to your resolution and becoming a better you.
- TALK ABOUT IT
Don’t keep your resolution a secret! Talking about your goals and keeping it in the forefront of your mind will help you remain optimistic. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better or improve your health.
- TREAT YOURSELF
Celebrate the small wins throughout your progress. Treating yourself throughout your resolution is not “cheating” on your goals. If your resolution is attainable, celebrating is a must.
- TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Keep track of each small success. Short-term goals are easier to keep, and each small accomplishment will keep you motivated.
- DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP
Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day and take one day at a time.
- STICK WITH IT
It won’t happen overnight, so be persistent and patient! Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity to become a habit and six months for it to become part of your personality.
- KEEP TRYING
If you have totally run out of steam when it comes to keeping your resolution by mid-February, don’t fret! Start over again and keep these 10 steps in place to help you achieve your goal!
