  • I always make them and break them. Not this year I am going all the way.
  • I have a really hard time sticking to New Year's resolutions--hopefully with some help from Spark People, I will be able to do better this year to stick to healthy eating and exercise.

    I love setting resolutions at the start of each year - the feeling that I can make a fresh start really motivates me.

    Over the years I've come up with a 4-step approach to help avoid January joy turning to February failure:
    Step 1: Run a reality check
    Step 2: Translate ‘what’ into ‘when’
    Step 3: Focus on progress, not perfection
    Step 4. Make it fun!

    For the details of the steps check out my "HappinessStrategies" blog.
  • I was disappointed in myself when I opened my journal and read my resolutions that I made Jan 1 2007. They are nearly identicle to the ones I just made for 2008 with the exception that I am better equipped to accomplish them this year. I am being realistic, specific and self loving... AND I have SparkPeople this year which I didn't last year! Good luck to everyone!!

    I have NEVER made resolutions. I think this year I will make them and plan them out. Hopefully this works. Good Luck to ALL!

  • I always have some resolutions. Usually they are boring and not well planned. This article is the best! I can now set out a plan and refer back to this whenever I need help.
