What about following through with the resolution? Remember that life can get in the way, but slowly progressing your goals little by little can help and go a long way. For example, maybe just starting off by going exercising one day, and then maybe in a couple months moving to twice a day. Setting reasonable goals also helps with holding accountability. Maybe if you’ve always wanted to meal prep but know how, starting off by learning how to cook could be a start to learning how.
Here in our youth group, we discussed about how to set up resolutions and having a deadline for them. Learning and being able to set up S.M.A.R.T. goals helps with being committed. S.M.A.R.T. means: specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-based. Specifically, narrow down your objective to the basics. Measure and set steps to achieve by a certain time to track your progress. Ask yourself, is it really achievable and relevant? It’s time-based, so when is the deadline?
Remember that what you put in is what you get out of it! Everything is possible depending on how much emphasis and energy you put into it!
