3 Reasons why setting New Year’s Resolutions is important

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is over already! We’ll be the first to hold up our hands and say that yes, we absolutely overindulged this Christmas, but now it’s time to focus on the year ahead! And what better way than to set ourselves some New Year’s resolutions?

How to go about setting your New Year’s Resolutions? Think about What do you want to achieve? What do you want to end the year feeling proud of? If you’re guilty of setting resolutions that you don’t stick to, making promises to yourself that you forget about all too quickly, here are 3 reasons why setting them and keeping them are so important! (Remember them when you feel like giving in!)

It will help you become who you want to be

Want to be the person who can sign up for a marathon and look forward to completing – and be smiling when you cross the finish line too? Then it’s important that you set yourself a New Year’s resolution to help you become that person. Setting yourself a resolution is a good way to help you reflect on what’s important to you, clear your mind and focus on who you want to become.

It can provide stability

We don’t know what our plans are for next weekend, let alone what they will be in five year’s time. Yet actually, having some idea of where you want to be can help you make the right decisions in life. Make a New Year’s resolution for 2017, just a small one, and you can use it to help guide you along the right path when you’re struggling to make a decision.

It can drive you

How many times have you thought to yourself, “I won’t drink Monday – Friday!”, and then found yourself sharing a bottle of Merlot with Gabby from Accounting on a Tuesday evening? Yep, we’re right there with you. Just think, if you set yourself the goal to not drink on a weekday for a month – or even two months! – at the same time that everybody else is setting their personal goals, you’ll have the support and encouragement of everyone around you to help drive you to achieve yours!

What will your New Year’s Resolution be? Let’s get supportive girls!
