Resolutions are usually inevitable at the end of a long month of indulgence, even if you swore not to make another one again. Whether you have a formal plan or a vague idea in your head, resolutions are a good reminder that you can always strive to become a better you. Luckily, those in Edgewater apartments have plenty of options if they're looking to make smarter choices in 2019. Here are a few ways to make smarter resolutions so you're not setting yourself up for disappointment.
Add to Your Life
Sometimes it's too hard to take things away from your life, which is why you may want to reform your resolutions as adding to your life. So instead of giving up your favorite sugary snacks, maybe you make a resolution to add more salads to your diet. Instead of telling yourself that you won't watch as much Netflix, try making a resolution to take a dance class. If you want to advance your career, try signing up for a class that will improve your work skills and boost your resume. Keep your goals extremely specific so you know when you've reached them. It's really easy to fall back into old habits when you feel deprived, so this tactic can be a great way to rethink the problem.
Use Your Tools
What makes you motivated? Is it posting your progress on Facebook? Is it celebrating tiny milestones? This should be the year you use all of your tools to keep up with your resolutions. One thing you may want to try is a website designed to hold you accountable. Websites like StickK allow you to make a goal and then track your progress throughout the year. Ask someone you love to monitor your actions as well. If you fail to stick to your plan, you'll be forced to do something you hate (e.g., donate money to your least favorite politician).
