Ring in the New Year by Setting Goals, Not by Making Resolutions
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) -It's time to say goodbye to 2022 and to say hello to 2023!
Raise your hand if you've made a resolution at this time of the year before. And, if you have, how many of them have you actually followed through to completion?
According to discoverhappyhabits.com, only 9-12% of people keep their New Year's resolutions. Studies show the most popular reasons that success rate is so long are because of four main reasons:
- Unrealistic Goals
- Not Keeping Track of Their Progress
- Forgetting About Their Resolutions
- Making Too Many Resolutions
Hannah Comeaux, Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Lafayette, works with clients every day helping them set goals that help them become better versions of themselves.
Most of us make New Year Resolutions but often times they fall flat quickly!" says Hannah Comeaux. "The reality is that lasting and meaningful change takes time and dedication but the results are going to be worth it!
Small Changes Lead to Big Impact!
Hannah Comeaux: "Research has shown that 'teamwork' creates a recipe for success! Find someone with similar goals and have check-ins and seek encouragement. It can be a partner, friend, family member or a group that you join! If you mess up, there’ll be someone there to encourage you to get back up and try again."
