4 Tips to Make Those New Year’s Resolutions Stick

January 16, 2023

It’s 2023, so it’s time to set those goals for the new year. According to data by Statistic Brain, half of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions, but only 8% will achieve them. Well, this year, we want you to be part of that accomplished percentage and know how to make your New Year’s resolutions stick all the way into next year. 

4 Tips for Managing Your New Year’s Resolutions 

Setting attainable goals is possible when approached from a strategic mindset. Follow the tips below to set manageable goals for 2023 and build forward-moving momentum. 

1. Set SMART Goals 

SMART is an acronym that stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. SMART goals are clearly defined, making them easier to manage and achieve. For example, instead of making a resolution to eat healthier, your resolution would be to cook at least three healthy meals at home per week. 

2. Track Each Goal 

Setting New Year’s resolutions is great, but you’ll easily slip off the wagon if you don’t track your goal progress. Invest in a goal-tracking planner, download a planning app, or create a spreadsheet that you visit every day to document your progress. 

3. Schedule It In 

Make those 2023 resolutions stick by scheduling them into your everyday life. Take each SMART goal and write it down in a planner or household calendar board. Returning to our example goal of eating healthier, write down in your calendar which days you will cook healthy meals at home.  

4. Consistency Over Volume 

Consistency wins over volume every time. That means going to the gym every day, even for only 15 minutes, is better than going on Monday for an hour and skipping Tuesday because you don’t have an hour to spare. When you drop the “all or nothing” mentality, you will start to make habitual changes that stick. 


Set achievable SMART goals, track each goal, schedule it around your everyday life, and remember that consistency beats volume.
