Top Tips for Keeping Resolutions

January 8, 2015

Around the holiday season, people all over the world begin making promises to themselves, their friends, coworkers, and family. They are called “resolutions.” Making a resolution is a proclamation that you will change your behavior in some way, likely to improve your own or someone else’s life. While declaring your intentions is the easy part, where many (myself included) often fall short is actually keeping resolutions. Here at AMA, we want to help you with keeping resolutions, whether they are for the new year or for any length of time. This article is a compilation of resources that can help you keep your resolutions and accomplish your personal and professional goals.

Making and Keeping Resolutions

Whether your goal is to lose weight, quit smoking, spend more time with your family, or any of the infinite resolution possibilities, everyone faces the same challenge. Changing our behavior is unnatural, but if change is what you want, you need to be diligent and consistent for that new behavior to become the norm. These articles will help you make reasonable, well-defined resolutions that will be easier to follow through on. If you hit a roadblock when trying to make a change, these articles can help you establish, and keep, your resolutions.
