Hello March! Hard to believe we are already a few months into the new year. How are you doing on those resolutions? Still going strong or have you already in just a few weeks time found it challenging to stay committed to something you felt really motivated to do or work towards this year?
If you’ve already found yourself struggling to stay committed to your goals, don’t be too hard on yourself because things like motivation, self control, and goal setting are much more complicated than we think. For example, recently there has been a renewed debate about willpower and whether we should be focusing on discipline, motivation, or both, a proposition that there can be a problem with focusing on big goals, and a discussion about how challenging we find it to push outside of and embrace our comfort zones.
Here are a few strategies that might help you to stay on track or get back on track with your resolutions:
