Here's an article from the Huffington Post that we thought had some helpful tips for making your New Year's resolutions work for you:
1. Focus on the Internal
So many of us make superficial resolutions each year, and one of the reasons they don't stick is that they're just not heavy enough. This year, forget about losing those last ten pounds and make a resolution to make this your healthiest year yet, or instead of resolving to get a manicure every week, promise yourself that you'll do one thing every day that helps move your career forward. If you focus on the bigger and more important reasons for your resolution, you'll be constantly reminded of the importance of keeping it.
2. Put it In Writing
It's amazing how simply writing something down can magically make it true. We use this tool in the Build-a-Boyfriend workshop in our book How to Love Like a Hot Chick to help you discover exactly what kind of relationship you want and make it that much easier to find, and the same technique works for New Year's resolutions. Take a quiet moment to sit down and write about what resolution you're making and why, to make sure that you and the universe both know its full meaning and importance. Post this paper somewhere you'll see it every day, like on your bathroom mirror or your fridge, and every time you're tempted to slip, the full weight of what you'd be giving up will be right in your face.
