We’ve all been there — the new year starts and we enter it full of optimism and ambition, certain that this will be our year. And then reality hits and we start singing a new tune as we realize that changing is just as hard this year as it was in the last one (maybe even harder, actually.)
Even with the best of intentions, our new years’ resolutions are often lost in the shuffle of messy lives and busy schedules. We want desperately to overcome bad habits and build new, better ones, and we often do — for a time. After the excitement of starting fresh begins to wear off, it can be tricky to stick to our goals long enough to make those new habits last.
But fear not, young grasshoppers! We have some tips and tricks for building better habits that will actually stick with you for the rest of the year (and maybe the rest of your life.)
