How To Stick To Your New Year Resolution
The year is coming to an end, and we are sure that you must be already making a list of New Year's resolutions. However, it can be quite hard to stick to your resolutions all through the year. We often start off with high enthusiasm and by midyear our plans totally go down the drain. This is why; we have come up with 5 ways that will help you to stick to your New Year resolution, no matter what. Check them out.
Set Realistic Goals
It is very important that the resolution you choose to work on is realistic and doable. Keep achievable goals and take one step at a time. If you swear to never eat rice, you may fail in the next month itself. Instead, you can set short term goals or assign number of days you will refrain yourself from eating rice. Keep it realistic so that you can stick to your resolution.

Set Reminders On Your Phone
This is the best way to make use of that inbuilt planner in your smart phone. Go to your planner and set reminders at regular intervals about the task you want to complete.

Make sure the reminders pop-up repetitively at intervals so that you get a constant reminder about your resolution.
Keep Rewarding Yourself
Once you have started working on your resolution make sure you track your progress, and reward yourself with something good every time you cross a milestone. Like you can buy yourself a warm cup of coffee after successfully having a sugarless diet for a week, or go for a massage after slogging in the gym. Make sure you don't go overboard, let a treat be a treat!
