Just Another New Year’s Resolutions Post (but not at all)


fashionlush, new years resolutions, 2017

Okay… so here’s the deal with resolutions, more often than not… they sadly don’t stick.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post (remember- punctuality is the new black!), I am super into resolutions. I think it’s a great way to set the new year on a good foot… but if you want them to actually last- there is a certain way to set yourself up for resolution keeping success.

Of course I’ve got those generic ones in the back of my head (work less, travel more, eat better, be active, hang with family, etc. etc.), but those things are not really resolutions to me… they are just things I need to do more of… no matter what time of the year. Those are the daily no brainers.

The thing with resolutions, they need to be specific. Saying you want to eat better is vague. A better way to phrase it would be: I plan to eat a serving of vegetables & protein at each meal. BOOM. Your success rate just went up.

The other thing is, when people make too many resolutions. I keep it to 5, because 5 is manageable. Get up to into the double digits, and although you are aiming high, you are putting way too much pressure on yourself & trying to stick to a scroll of resolutions will just be way too overwhelming.

SO- what’s some of your guys’ resolutions? Share them in the comments section below, I’d love to hear!!

Now… for a mandatory round up of my favorite blog moments of 2016!!! It was a good year, if I do say so myself :).
