Thanks Claire Dunwell for including some of my tips for staying motivated when you feel like giving up on your New Year’s Resolutions.
What helps you stay on track?

Tomorrow (there truly is a day for everything) is Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day.
How does reading that make you feel? Are there some resolutions you’ve not stuck to but that you’re not ready to ditch? Maybe others are old standby resolutions you, deep down, have no intention of ever sticking to but feel you ‘should’ make each year?
Notice how your energy rises or falls as you ponder each resolution and decide which ones to maybe tweak (or gleefully ditch!). Honour where you are sticking to them, too.
If you’re feeling especially brave, you might want to involve others. Often, they can see, with blinding clarity, what we keep missing about ourselves.
What do they see us doing to sabotage our attempts to change that we’ve not even noticed?
Opening ourselves up to feedback can feel vulnerable (do choose who to open up to carefully) yet others’ insights could potentially save us remaking – and failing at – the same new year’s resolutions for years to come.
How do you feel about asking loved ones to weigh in on your resolutions?
What’s the most helpful feedback you’ve received from someone else?
What might support you handle tougher feedback? How might you ask for it to be delivered in a gentle and respectful way?
