I don’t know ’bout you but I rarely fulfill the list of my New Year’s Resolution!! But it’s not too late— RIGHT?!

Even if we don’t openly admit it, somewhere deep down we all make a list of New Year’s Resolution!

The first promise you can make to yourself is to set yourself some goals and really STICK to them and see them through.

Tricks to help you keep those resolutions:

Start by making your resolutions, then tell people what they are.

You will be less inclined to fail if you know people are expecting it. Also, don’t make too many – if you have too big a list, you will be less likely to follow through with your goals. Then write or print out your list and put it somewhere you know you will see it every day –  the fridge, car, diary or in your purse –  this way you will be sure to see it and not forget it.

If you get to the end of another year and see you have slacked off and not quite made it to your goals then that makes next year’s resolution an easy pick, to do better than this year!

Self-improvement is a fantastic aim, whether it is for you personally, the family or to simply get ahead. Choose your resolution and do your best.

Good luck and Happy New Year from the SAHM Team!!
