Need Help Keeping Those Resolutions?
With all the moving pieces in our lives, it can feel like a struggle to stay on top of things... don't let it drive you crazy, instead: take control! Here are our top tips for keeping those New Year feels going strong all the way into 2018.
1. First and foremost - find a process that works for YOU.
Are you a visual person? Break out those pastel post-its and make yourself a little wall of goals. Each time you complete a project, tear that post-it down!
Need reminders? Make your Google Calendar your new best friend and set a notification AND an email reminder so you're holding yourself accountable two-fold.
Tried the above and found them not so true? Your own personal deVivre Concierge will keep on top of projects for you so you can focus on your more enjoyable resolutions.
2. Check in with yourself.
Two weeks in. 1 month in. Then every few months. How are you doing/feeling mentally & physically? Readjust your goals where needed and keep on keepin' on.
Finding that you need a couple extra hours in the day or week to make it work? Treat yo'self.
3. Get an accountabili-buddy.
Find a friend (or group) that has the same goals and resolutions as you. Having the support from others on the same path will keep you motivated and honest.
Can't find the right Meetup or running group? We got you.
4. Be gentle with yourself
The point of a resolution isn't to beat yourself up when/if you can't quite maintain. Instead, look at the New Year as an opportunity to take stock of what you need (or don't) in your life and as a rallying call for making your life better, not harder. Take small steps towards whatever goal will help you strike the balance you need and reward yourself for the little things. You are your own champion.
5. Don't be afraid to ask for help
It takes a village. Can't get to the gym because you spent all afternoon in line at the post office? Skipped meditating because you had to pick up your dry cleaning? Got takeout again because you couldn't make it to the farmer's market? Let us take care of the little things so you can take the best possible care of yourself.
