Whatever bad habit you need to break, it's never easy to keep new years resolutions. This may be because we are lazy or just don't have the resources and self control to keep resolutions. We have compiled a list of ways to keep your new years resolutions in 2020 and be successful. Keep reading to help yourself keep your new years resolutions.

 

1. Start with realistic goals.

Don't start with crazy goals that you won't be able to accomplish. This makes it too hard to stick with things. You will get overwhelmed and not be able to keep going. Start small and work your way up.

 

2. Find someone to hold you accountable

If you are wanting to loose weight, find a gym partner that makes you accountable of going to the gym everyday. If you wish to save money, find a free financial counselor or buddy who also wants to save money. You can find people who have the same goals as you in facebook groups, reddit communities, etc.

 

3. Reward Yourself

If you keep on track with your goals for at least a week, allow yourself to have a reward. This will keep you going and not want to give up as easily.

 

4. Make a dream board of your goals and put it somewhere you can look at it everyday

This can remind you of your goals and the steps you need to take to get there. This can also motivate you in the morning and before you go to sleep.

 

5. Talk about it.

Tell your friends and family. The reason you should do this is because now that you have told everyone your plans, you are more likely to follow through with them.
