Studies show that less than 20% of people even keep their resolutions.But breaking New Year's resolutions might actually be a good thing.
Rather than berating yourself for not sticking to your plan, use the broken resolution as an opportunity to learn more about your habits and your preferences. Doing so will help you refine your goals and come up with a plan that is more attainable.
The key is that you take a look at your broken resolution and try to determine why it wasn't attainable. Once you do that, you may be able to set more achievable goals.
Additionally, try to start small with a goal that you know you can achieve and then gradually work your way up to that ultimate goal.
In today's hectic world, adding more to your plate is rarely effective. For this reason, you need to prioritize what you want to accomplish and then focus on achieving those goals throughout the year.
Ideally, you should pick one or two things to focus your energy on.
Thoughts impact emotions and behaviors. If a resolution is worded in a way that is negative or restricting, it isn't going to help you to feel good or motivated to achieve it. Studies show that expressing a desire to have more self-control could actually have the opposite effect on behavior.
Try to word your resolutions using positive statements rather than imposing restrictions or implying that something is negative.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
