How to Keep Your New Year's Goals & Resolutions

It's been 4 days since the start of 2015, how are your goals/resolutions coming along? Have you actually planned anything?

Here are some great tips on how to keep your goals/ resolutions.

1// What do you want to accomplish? Make a generalized goal. It can be anything from my "budget and save better" goal or "create a healthy lifestyle". Choose something that you want to change.

2// Write it down.  Create a document or a page that you can hang somewhere that you'll see it everyday. Make it pretty too, so the document will catch your eye.

3// Make mini goals or steps to your general goal. I had a generalized goal, and then came up with steps and mini goals to get me to the overall goal. This makes you goal look more attainable.

Here is how I decided to 

4// Schedule a check in time after 21 days. Research shows that if you continue something for 21 days, it becomes a habit. Pick a start day, then count out 3 weeks after that and mark it for a check in. Then schedule check in's every couple of months in case you get off track.

5// It's okay to be flexible, but don't underestimate yourself.  Understand that goals can be changed, but don't stop because it's hard. Be kind to yourself but believe in yourself too.
