New Year’s resolutions are typically done with good intentions, but following through on them all year long can be extremely difficult, no matter how good your intentions are. If you need help sticking to your goals, you’re not alone. According to one study, out of people who said they made resolutions, only one out of five people actually accomplished their stated goals. That number needs to be higher!
Don’t let yourself be one of the five! Instead, make a gameplan for how to stick to your specific goals for the new year. You’re less likely to give up on them if you have a plan. Here are some of our ways to stick to three common new years resolutions.
Save Money On Food
Going through the grocery store and wasting money on food you may not actually even eat is so common, so skip the grocery store and try meal-kit services instead. Meal-kit delivery services such as HelloFresh are popular right now, and for good reason. You pick out what meals you want online and then all of the ingredients and instructions are shipped right to your door. Saving time and money? This is a perfect way to achieve your resolution.
Learn A New Skill Or Two
Commit to learning your new skill the same way you would for going to work or seeing a friend. Put the time on your calendar and block it off. Don’t let anything else interrupt it. Treating your new hobby time like a to-do item helps keep you from pushing it off or planning events during that time.

Move More Often
Exercising is hard enough as it is, but there are so many ways to make it mentally easier on yourself. If you’re going on a run, leave your running shoes right by the door. Try running with your dog instead of just strolling with them in the mornings. If you’re competitive, try signing up for a challenge where you’re ranked in order to motivate yourself. Just move your body more in fun, enjoyable ways, and you’ll be glad you respected your body’s wishes and had a blast doing it!
