We’ve all heard the phrase “new year, new me,” but how many of us actually start making real changes in our lives once we’re in the new year? Resolutions can be made and goals can be set, but following through with them often gets swept under the rug after a few months due to lack of commitment. It can be hard to stick to a new routine and see real change. With the right mindset, you can successfully follow through with your attempts at seeing a new you in 2024. Events & Adventures is here to help with valuable tips on how to make resolutions and commit to them.

Discover your “why”

You need to begin by understanding why you want to make changes – is it for yourself, your family, your career? Whatever the case may be, having a motivating factor will give a sense of purpose and help you stay committed to your goals. Throughout this process, you should also check in with yourself to ensure that what you planned for is still what you want. Regularly checking in and reassessing your goals ensures that you stay aligned with your aspirations and see them through. Even with consistent review, your goals may change – which is okay! Just be sure to stay committed, no matter what you hope to achieve.

Make realistic goals

When you set your goals and resolutions, make them attainable. People tend to make broad statements about the changes they want to see in themselves. Without a set plan of action or smaller milestones to get you there, it may prohibit any growth or change at all. Smaller goals break your plan into chunks, making your resolutions less intimidating. They should be treated in the same way as the larger goals in that accomplishing them is just as important. Recognize and reward yourself when you achieve something or make significant strides toward your resolutions. It will boost your morale, reinforce positive behaviors, and give you the motivation to continue toward a “new year, new me.”

Patience is key

Being patient with yourself is a crucial part of successful growth. A few setbacks do not mean the end of the world, and they shouldn’t deter you from your goals. Instead, they should teach you valuable lessons and allow for growth in your journey. Everyone makes mistakes, but learning from them and still going confirms that you are on the path to success. See what went wrong, make changes in your approach, and be determined to keep moving forward. Remember, your “new year, new me” plans require time, effort, and dedication.

Be flexible

You should also remain flexible while you navigate these changes. Life can be unpredictable, and sometimes you need to make adjustments to your plan of action due to things beyond your control. As long as you are able to adapt and remain committed to your goals, you will reach them. Being okay with change is the entire purpose of making resolutions, so don’t let unexpected hiccups get you down!

Find your support system

One of the most important aspects of making changes in your life is having a support system. Sharing your struggles, progress, and desire to make a change with someone (or a group) who can understand what you are going through makes being patient and persistent easier. You’ll get the accountability and encouragement you need to keep going, and perhaps make even more goals for yourself! Luckily, these people are easier to find than you think.
