Goodbye, 2015 and welcome 2016. Another year has passed. Another time has come for resolutions to return. So, how were your first few days in this year? What did you do for new year’s resolution activities?

Every year, we promise to our self to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice. However, the execution of our resolution is not always as smooth as silk.

Good Habits for New Year's Resolution in 2016


After the buzzy and beautiful sky crackers welcoming 2016, let’s take a brief moment and indulging your 2015. Did you reach your last year resolutions? Whether realistic or not, did you actually achieve something?

If you barely achieve nothing and just re-write your last year resolutions into this year resolutions, I suggest you stop. Why? Because your important list of activities for a better self is nonsense if you didn’t understand how to execute it.

The Big Picture of Doing New Year’s Resolutions Activities

Develop Good Habits for Your New Year's Resolution Activities


I persuade you to think the big picture of your resolutions. To understand the reasons why you want to be a better self. You need to understand your reasons to change and develop good habits to support it.

Take this as the first example for you. You want to have a better body shape in 2016 since you are failed to do so in 2015. Raise the understanding to yourself, why you want to have a better body shape. A healthy reason? Then, raise another question.

What are good habits to support our resolutions? Of course you won’t reach better body shape with eating junk food at 23.00 pm, instead start eating healthy food and don’t forget to put the gym/exercise plan on a specific day at a calendar and stick to it.

Second example. You want to stop smoking. You already understand the danger of smoking. Observe yourself. Sometimes you can break your bad habit with another habit. My friends using this trick and succeeds. He usually smokes after eating a meal. Instead smoking, he starts to chew a bubble gum. He now has the habit of chewing a bubble gum, but no longer smokes.

Third example. You want to read more books in 2016. However, you always have excuses. Now, develop a habit to read one paragraph a day before sleep. Let yourself accustomed with your new habit until you can’t sleep without a read. Slow but sure you will finish a lot of books.

Changing Habits Gradually will Lead to the Fulfillment of Your Resolution

Behaviors and habit are hard to be changed, there will be a time when you succeed or will fail when you implement your new habit. When you fail, kindly stick to your reason to change and learn what to do in future rather than use your fail as a reason to give up.

If you want to consider more positive habits that you want to adopt, you may want to read the super popular books by Stephen R. Covey, which is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change and also its continuation, The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness.

Stephen R Covey The 8th Habit From Effectiveness to GreatnessLet yourself be accustomed to the new habit. Just do the activities to support your habit like there is no tomorrow. Remember that excuse is the bad habit that will stop you from your resolutions.

I don’t specify the list of activities or good habit for you, but you can prepare yourself to make a better new year’s resolutions. Enjoy yourself with developing good habits for new year’s resolution activities. Or, good luck to accomplish your resolution in 2017 :)

Any food for thought is welcomed.

    You’ve raised a very important point here, often we think about new year resolutions as something we do that sees results immediately, but that’s not always the case. So it’s best to break that goal down into manageable chunks and work at it everyday.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Anh, yes it works greatly when we break down our goals :) Though I personally don’t want too much detailed breakdown. It makes me lose the spirit of achieving each goal. So, make your resolutions as much detail as you think you can do it :)

    This is a good book you recommend here, too. It all starts with activity and good habits. There is so much we can do to actively change our lifes for the better, thank you very much for helping people to get started with it!
