The famous saying “New Year, New Me” describes the resolutions that people set to change their lifestyles. When picking a New Year’s resolution, people usually choose a goal they’ll be proud of sticking through and doing. Although resolutions are beneficial, it’s sometimes really hard to commit. People often drop their new goals due to the lack of effort, but keeping focused on those goals can be rewarding. It's important to follow through on New Year resolutions because it gives a new exciting change to one’s
lifestyle.

One way you can follow through on your resolution is by setting reminders. Writing in a planner, calendar, or having alarms to keep track of your goal is convenient. Depending on the resolution, you can set multiple alarms to remind you. Having reminders keeps you remembering your task so you never have to forget.

Another way to stay on top of the resolution is by fulfilling it with a friend. Working together with a friend or family member can make a person more motivated to keep the resolution longer or to resume practicing it even when it has been broken. It can be fun and competitive to do with a friend and something to look forward to after a long day, a long week or any other time period.

Keeping a resolution is really difficult. Putting something into your schedule can be hard to get used to, but it can be really rewarding. Maybe setting up the alarm can be part of that New Year’s Resolution, and success can start there!
