How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

As January ends, Jack Rockett explores way to keep your New Year's Resolution beyond the the first month of the year. 

At the beginning of the year, it’s always the same. Everyone talks about their New Year’s resolution and how they broke it on the 2nd of January and that is because we want to change suddenly. If you want to succeed, make your resolution easy. Just because it is January 1st you suddenly want to do all these things. Some of our most impossible favourites are:
·         Be nicer

·         See more family

·         Study more

·         Be better behaved

·         Quit smoking

·         Cut down on chocolate

·         Stop drinking

          (And the far too clichéd) GO ON A DIET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the time, these are things that are very hard to crack. Either you can’t be bothered, love food too much, love wine too much or just love yourself too much, but there is an easy way out. Change your resolution to ‘Love myself more’.
It’s mine and so far I’ve kept to it very well. When there is a big decision, just instantly think of factors that affect you. With free opportunity, do what you want to do. After completing a task, spend a few minutes or even half an hour savouring it and feeling proud about what you have achieved. It makes you feel so good.

If you are mean to a person, you are to not hate yourself and feel really bad. Of course you will feel a little bit bad but don’t let the guilt overrun your life. Just apologise to the person, come to a fair agreement and then shake it off your shoulders.

When someone shouts at you for no reason, make sure that you demand they calm down and apologise for the way they talked to you, but you must still be nice. Anyone you talk to should be treated with respect unless they are horrible to you, as, if the others like you and the way you act, you will feel better.
I hope this article has helped you get rid of ‘DIET’ from your list. Still, these are things you have to deal with. Don't wait until February 1st. Do it today and become better over a period of time.
