2019 has officially ended and the new year is eagerly making its way into the world! San Franciscans all over the city are celebrating the new year with parties, dinners, and lots of fun gatherings in order to enter the 2020 with a positive attitude. As a tradition, this holiday also means reaching new ambitions and goals with the opportunity for a fresh start. Whether it is succeeding in a difficult class, living a healthier lifestyle, or even learning a new talent, we know that sometimes it isn’t always so easy to attain a goal that you have always wanted. So here are some secrets to making a new year resolution and sticking to it!

Plan Ahead

2

It is always a good idea to write down your goals and have a suitable plan as to exactly what you want to achieve. For example, the most common new year’s resolution is to start eating healthy and exercising. To attain that resolution, it would be helpful to start thinking about the times or days of the week you want to head to gym so that it fits into your schedule, or even about the healthier options that make it onto your grocery list. Having a good plan will keep you on track and give you motivation for following through with what you have written down.

Rewarding Yourself

3

It is not a surprise that a person would be more willing to follow through with something if there is a reward at the other end, especially one prepared by the person who knows you the most: your own self! Rewarding yourself can be an excellent motivation for sticking to that new lifestyle you have always wanted and can even be a great encouragement especially for the first few weeks of your resolution. Make some extra time to treat yourself to a spa day or a trip the movies!

Keep Trying

4

Making a change to a lifestyle that you have been following for years is challenging, so it is important to always have a good attitude towards your new goals no matter what happens. Remember that small missteps are always a part of reaching new goals, so don’t be discouraged and give up after making a mistake. It is also absolutely fine to start over and recommit yourself to your objective if you have to.

One Step At A Time

5

It may be tempting to try to achieve all your goals at once, but it is actually better if you spread out your strategy and aim for one objective at a time. When you attempt to do everything at once, it is a lot easier to get overwhelmed and discouraged, so concentrate on one thing that you believe you will be able to do, and move on to another once you have reached your goal.

Don’t forget to always have a positive outlook on the new year, and we hope that 2020 will be full of fun and surprises!

Happy New Year from all of us at Urbanests!
