5 sure ways to help you keep up with your New Year Resolutions

With 2018 coming to an end, it’s time to look forward to new beginnings and new journeys. Haven’t we all been a part of the new year fad and taken up resolutions every year? But the question always remains as to how often we’ve kept the promises we’ve made to ourselves.

Here are 5 ways you can definitely keep up with the most common resolutions made every year:

  1. Getting Fit
  2. Expectation: Get a gym membership and be regular with exercising.

    Reality: Not showing up at the gym post the first week of joining.

    This is one New Year resolution you make every year, but are unable to sustain with. The easiest way to get going is to have a support system – be it a friend or family member who can motivate you to work out. Also start out by setting small goals and targets, and once you reach it, move on to the bigger picture. And if gym is not your cup of tea, choose a form of exercise you like – yoga, swimming, cycling, dancing – the possibilities are endless!

  3. Saving Money
  4. Expectation: Salary just got credited. Will set aside money for savings and expenditure.

    Reality: Salary just got credited. Will set aside money for savings and expenditure.

    Even though we are well aware of the importance of savings, we often give away to our impulsive needs – be it shopping for the latest gadget or designer clothes. The best way to start saving is by committing to set aside a minimal amount every month, no matter the situation. And what if we told you the money you set aside can also make more money for you?

  5. Following your Hobbies
  6. Expectation: I love photography. I’ll explore the world with my lens every weekend.

    Reality: Too tired this week. Maybe I’ll start from next week.

    Our hobbies are those which keep us going in this busy and hectic life. Be it music, dance, cooking, photography, or even a sport, it is important and essential to take a break from our schedule and devote time to what brings us to life. To get started, prioritize your time – your hobby should get a minimum of at least one hour per week, no matter rain or shine. Remember why it matters -after all, you owe yourself that time for self-growth!

  7. Investing more time with family
  8. Expectation: I will invest quality time with my parents/children.

    Reality: Too busy working hard... after all it is only for them.

    Family is not an important thing- it is everything!
    All the money in the world cannot buy the happiness that one experiences at the comfort of home, surrounded by family. Ensure you take the trip that you have always been planning with your family – it should be a few days away from work, exclusively for them. Start by checking on places to visit, and book tickets for the same in advance – that way the cost is low, and you don’t back out. Or if planning a trip is too much effort, just take a day off and surprise your family by cooking at home. Even this small gesture can make a big difference and bring a smile on their face!

  9. Getting started on ‘The Dream’
  10. Expectation: I want to start my own business venture this year.

    Reality: Not sure if I am prepared... maybe I should wait for another year.

    You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great! If there is some dream or passion that is driving you to get started, then why wait? Make 2019 the year you take the plunge. Get started by researching and planning out all your requirements.
