New Years is right around the round corner and that means resolutions. Many New Year’s resolutions may seem daunting and you feel pressured to pick something large such as, learning a new language, learning to drive manual or losing weight. Which each large New Year’s resolution, there is a risk of failure. No-one wants to start their new year with failure. So how can we make sure that we keep the resolutions?
Make them simple and achievable! Pick something that is realistic and easy to achieve. Start off with something small because you can always change it you meet your goal. For example, my goal is to move around the office more.
Make a plan on how you can achieve your goal! Make time in your schedule on when to work on your goal.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! If your goal is to walk longer distances or run a 5K, ask your physical therapist for help. If you want to organize your life and start to cook more complex dishes, as your occupational therapist. If you want to remember more things or start to write short stores, ask your speech therapist. Help is always available you just have to ask.
Most important of all, make sure that the resolution is something that you want to address. Don’t pick one just because everyone is doing it. Pick something that means something to you!
Have a happy and healthy New Year!
