Resolutions are hard to stick to. Saying that you want to lose 10kg or save $10,000 is easy, but if you don’t include a step-by-step plan for achieving those goals and don’t understand how current behaviours and habits are limiting you, you may feel overwhelmed and lose all motivation to see your resolutions through.
Most of us set ourselves these big and often impractical targets,” says Dr Lim Boon Leng, a psychiatrist at Dr BL Lim Centre For Psychological Wellness at Gleneagles Medical Centre. “For lasting change to occur, you not only have to have a plan, you also have to start small and go slow. When you start small, or break a big goal up into smaller goals, you’ll find the changes easier to implement and sustain. And when you go slow, you’re less likely to feel daunted and therefore more likely to stick to your goals.”
