3. Tell it to your closed friends and family members.

A new year resolutions can me more effective if you will tell it to your closed friends, to your parents and other family members. It is because they will be more willing to help you achieve what you want to achieve. If you tell your friends you want to have a perfect body figure this year, they will remind you what to do, what not to eat and they will tell you to do exciting activities like dancing, going to gym or even jogging along the sidewalks.

Your friends and family members will guide you until all your new year resolutions happen. So, don’t be shy to them what you want to change in your life or in your body this coming year.

4. Be true to yourself.

Don’t fake your new year resolutions. Your subconscious mind knows you’re just faking it. If you did, you will end up making mistakes. You will just fail. Don’t make new year resolutions because everyone is doing it. Do it sincerely.

5. Take action with self-disciplined.

If you want to make your new year resolutions happen, take action immediately. As I have said before in the quote and unquote “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. Now you have a written plan, do it, otherwise, you’re just dreaming awake.
