How to make and keep res­o­lu­tions

Dalby Herald - - NEWS OPINION - Meg Gan­non Meg.Gan­[email protected]­by­her­ald.com.au

THE end of 2018 has crept up on us, and now we are fi­nally here. We are say­ing good­bye to a year of hap­pi­ness for some, loss for oth­ers, but no­body can dis­agree with me when I say that it has been one event­ful year.

Now is the time that we re­flect on what we’ve done this year and cre­ate our new res­o­lu­tions for the new year.

My rec­om­men­da­tion for your res­o­lu­tions? Make them su­per-achiev­able, and don’t be too hard on your­self if you for­get about them. One year I promised my­self that I’d eat more toma­toes. It took me un­til the year af­ter to ac­tu­ally ful­fil that res­o­lu­tion, but who was keep­ing track?

Res­o­lu­tions are tough to keep and if any­thing are only re­ally there to keep us ac­count­able for our ac­tions, so it shouldn’t feel as though you have a tonne of pres­sure on your­self to up­hold the stan­dards. Make them easy, and pos­si­bly some­thing with a tan­gi­ble, mea­sur­able goal. Or, even bet­ter, don’t make them at all and just see where the year takes you! That sounds much eas­ier.

From all of us at the Dalby Her­ald, we wish you a very Happy New Year. We hope 2019 is full of ex­cite­ment for the fu­ture, and grat­i­tude for what we al­ready have.

Here’s to an en­rich­ing, ful­fill­ing, suc­cess­ful 2019!
