Ah, yes. The New Year is just about here. Some of us are feeling oh-so-optimistic that the New Year will be fab. Others are expecting the same-ol-same-ol. And many people will make those effing resolutions.
Resolutions are not your friend. They start out all "ride or die", then ghost you like you're some tramp. That's why we need to "re-imagine" resolutions. Instead of treating a resolution like a summer fling, we need to put a ring on it and treat it like a commitment. And that means making a plan instead of a resolution.
The physicians at MedStar Health say it's cool to strive for achievements in the New Year. But we need to frame them properly. These three steps should help:
Make a full plan, not just a resolution.
Pick bite-sized goals that are achievable.
Write down resolutions on paper or record digitally.
Docs say the most important thing, though, is to always make your mental health your top priority, followed by getting more exercise and more sleep.
You got this!
