Can you believe that Christmas has already come and gone? Like good old Santa Claus himself, it sort of has a way of doing that. Don’t worry though, because it will somehow manage to sneak up on us all sooner than we think, despite the fact that it’s an entire year away. But with that holiday now in the rearview mirror, people have their eyes fixed on the one that’s up next — New Year’s.

Whether you are going to a huge New Year’s Eve bash or you’re the type of person who prefers to ring in the new year with pajamas and a bowl of ice cream, there’s a pretty solid chance that you’re already thinking about what you want to be different in the coming year. This is normal, of course, but New Year’s resolutions are a tricky thing. That’s why the team at Summit Riverside Apartments will be tackling that very subject in today’s post.

Why Do We Always Resolve to Be Different?

There are many cliche resolutions out there that turn out to be fairly common in reality. The resolution to go to the gym more. The resolution to eat better. The resolution to try harder at work. We certainly don’t want to argue that being healthier or working harder is a bad thing, but why exactly is it that people always have a new goal in mind — one that according to the Washington Post, many people abandon within a month?

To put it simply, it’s because people try too hard too fast.

Here’s What You Can Do Instead

Rather than seeing it as a goal that needs to be accomplished as quickly as possible, our advice is to take it for what it is, which is a chance to improve an aspect or two of your life over the course of an entire twelve months. That’s a wonderful thing, and setting the scope a little larger does wonders to help free you up from the guilt that comes with eating that bowl of ice cream, missing that workout, or forgetting to respond to an email at work.

You’re a human, so treat yourself like one. You’d be kind, courteous, and gracious to others along their journey, so be those things to yourself. Be realistic in your goals, start planning (and updating your plan along the way), have someone hold you accountable, or treat yourself when you succeed. These are all great ways to keep yourself on the path towards resolution success.
