Resolutions Sticking?

Each New Year’s Day signifies the start of carefully thought out resolutions for millions of Americans. Unfortunately, resolutions do not tend to stick as we put too much pressure on ourselves to be perfect and end up feeling overwhelmed in the process. Come February, many are quick to overlook these goals. In order to help ease the pressure, instead focus on more attainable goals and less of them. Remember to be smart, stick to fewer things (or even one thing at a time), exercise the buddy system for more encouragement, celebrate your victories and be kind to yourself!

Do you have any helpful tips on ways to stick with your resolutions? Please share them below!
