Resolution Rut Solution
New Year’s Resolutions rarely make it to the second month of the year. Many make an honest effort to keep their goals in sight. However, a lot of people let circumstances get in the way. Their jobs are too demanding, the resolution was harder than they thought, or no one understands their reason for making the resolution in the first place. There is a simple, yet effective way to get out of the resolution rut, one that might not cross people’s minds: friends.
That’s right. Telling your friends about your resolutions can help remind you why you started it in the first place. You probably tell your friends about other things in your life, so why not include your new year’s resolution into daily conversation?
The favor can be returned if your friends have resolutions as well. Helping each other out is what friends do any way. If you and your friends have the same resolution, it is even more likely that the resolution in mind will be kept throughout the year as you encourage each other.
However, friends should encourage in a loving way. Many people do not tell their friends about their resolutions because friends, even in their best interest, put too much pressure on the person making the resolution and then that person feels overwhelmed.
You know your friends. Judge how your friend handles your help in other situations and go from there. New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t be a burden, and friends helping out can be the best way to keep them.
