We hope you’ve had a lovely holiday season filled with love, support, and merriment! But with 2019 knocking on our doorstep, it’s time to groan about setting New Year’s resolutions. Ugh!
When it comes to setting and keeping resolutions, the statistics are pretty grim. According to the data, a whopping 80 percent of us give up on our annual goals by the time February rolls around—yikes! Well, we want YOU to succeed at your goals, so here are 3 tips for setting healthy, successful resolutions this year (plus, a FREE chart to help you get there)…
TURNIP THE BEET IN 2019!

1. Set short term, realistic goals.
Don’t just try to make a year-long goal. That’s a recipe for exhaustion and failure. Instead, aim to make a small, realistic lifestyle shift within a very specific window of time. While it generally takes a minimum of 21 days to adopt a new habit, it really takes anywhere between 60 to 90 days for a new habit to really stick. So, aim to practice your habit for a solid 12 weeks. Don’t expect instant results once January is over. Give yourself time to adapt.
2. Be patient with yourself.
Don’t give up if you briefly fall off the wagon. The hardest and most crucial part is to pick up where you left off and keep working towards your goal. Perfection is not a prerequisite for success. Keep chugging towards your goal in spite of the setbacks—and try to keep a lid on the self-deprecation. Remember, you’re doing something wonderful!
3. Join a community.
Sure, you can do it by yourself, but the science doesn’t lie. We are significantly more successful at accomplishing our goals when we have the support of a community. Having a group of people who are sharing the same types of triumphs and struggles can be the accountability we need to get ourselves into gear and stick with it.
