That's why we're sharing a few pitfalls to avoid to help ensure your chances of success. Make this year the year you keep your resolutions!
Don't Spend Too Much
One pitfall to avoid is spending way too much on your resolutions. So you bought an expensive gym membership. Or, you're thinking of buying the latest fitness tracker. While you might be tempted to drop some cash on new gadgets and subscriptions, experts warn that spending too much money on resolutions leads to giving up too soon or feeling bad when you don't keep up with it. Instead, find creative and less expensive ways to achieve your goals this time around.
Don't try to do everything all at once. This is one of the fastest ways to feel burnt out and exhausted. You want your resolutions to be manageable and achievable. That's why you should make time management one of your biggest focuses. Give yourself a time limit, even if that means setting a timer. You can even give yourself a 30-day challenge.
