Hi everybody! Welcome back to another blog post. We hope you’ve had a pleasant start to the New Year (2022) and we wish you and your loved ones to be safe, blessed with lots of love and happiness this year!

It’s been a week since we’ve stepped into the New Year, so we’re just checking in to see how you’re getting on with those New Year’s resolutions that you’ve lined up just a few weeks ago. Have you started to work on them or find yourself slacking at the beginning of the week itself and planning to start it from the next month instead? 

We’re not judging! But If you’re one of those who find yourself saying “I’ve not even started yet”, we’ve prepared some tips to trick your brain to begin and keep up with your new year resolutions. Read on to inspire yourself and rock this year!

Add a Dose of Daily Inspiration

Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday routine, the resolutions you’ve set might slip your mind -making you lose the spirit to follow through with the plan. So why not have something inspirational to make you go for your goal?

One of the most common reasons for the lack of follow-through is busy schedules. When you’re busy chasing time to fulfill daily responsibilities that pile on, you might feel as if you’re balancing too many spinning plates at once and vulnerable to forgetting the vows you made to yourself.

By keeping inspirational posters, whether in your room cupboard or somewhere you visit many times a day, keeping yourself focused on your goal and accountable will be a breeze. With an attractive yet inspirational photo poster you’ll be more motivated to follow through with your plan, and go for the gold!

Set Your Goals In Style!

As the saying goes, “a goal without a plan is just a wish”,  having a proper plan and tool that helps you is important. While you may have come up with some resolution plans such as eating healthy for three days in a week, working out daily, and more- setting aside time for specific goals with a calendar is a great way to keep you accountable.

When you create and stick to a schedule with the help of a calendar, you’re establishing a routine that is more structured and ensures that you have time to work on your goals. With an arranged day and dates, you’ll no longer have to look for time in your schedule but get around tackling your new year resolutions as you’ll be able to find a balance between your work and personal time.

Write to Keep a Note

It’s always great to have goals,  but it is critical to document them-which is an amazing way to track your progress and helps you to stick to your goal. Writing down your resolutions, gives you clarity about your goal, serves as a reminder, and establishes the intention and action that needs to be taken. They basically act as a filter and guiding light for what opportunities to pursue that’ll spur you forward when you hit a speed bump or obstacle.

When you write down your goals and the actions that need to be taken, you’ll be clear about what you want to accomplish and the difficulties you might face. Hence, you’ll be more prepared to stick to your resolution and overcome anything that might sidetrack you. Plus the written account of your goals can be an amazing reminder of how far you have come and what you have achieved at the end of the day!

Here are a few effective ways you can document your resolutions:

Find Something That Inspires You

If you’re one of those who need an extra push to go for your goal? Why not get something that can inspire you? Sometimes it only takes one sentence, quotes, or pictures to get your mind in gear on what you want to achieve in your day and the bigger picture of your life. 

Having them printed on things you can carry along with you such as tote bags, notebooks or tumblers can be an amazing way to remind you of your goal. As visual reminders are both more memorable and increase the attention span, create a future benchmark of achievement that sits out luminously in front of you; you know you won’t be satisfied until you achieve it. Hence, you’ll always strive for what you want.

And that concludes our 4 tips to trick your brain into keeping your new year resolutions. So if you’re pretty inspired and want to get something that inspires you, feel free to visit the Pixajoy website.
