New Year’s resolutions—they’re as easy to get into, as they are to get out of. So how can you make sure that this year your resolution lasts?

Here are a few tips:

Don’t overindulge yourself before the big day because you’re giving up that thing you love come 2012; steadily begin acting on your resolution as the new year approaches. It will be easier than going cold turkey because you will not have the pressure of sudden change in daily activities.

Break your resolution down. Why are you choosing this particular goal, exactly? Just having a realistic goal isn’t what matters; it’s about having a goal that matters to you. Once you see the big picture, dissect it into small steps that are easy to tackle a day at a time. If you see the steps you panned out for yourself aren’t working the way you thought, don’t get discouraged; just make minor changes while remembering that the big picture is still the same.

Surround yourself with people that have similar goals. Trying to shed a few pounds? Avoid going to dinner with that one friend who eats anything and everything she pleases.

If you are trying to become healthier, as with any resolution, you have to want it for yourself. This is the only way a resolution can truly be submerged into your daily routine.


Or you can take the easy way out and make a resolution as simple and satisfying as…eat whatever you want. Go wherever you want. Be whoever you want.
