Be realistic. If the good intentions you had on Dec. 31 felt spent by mid-January, don’t wait another year. “Most resolutions are about breaking bad habits and creating new ones,” so the key is to keep applying daily attention to the “happier, healthier life” you’re seeking.
Get organized. Don’t just wish yourself better—strategize. If you want to stop being late in the morning, try setting your alarm earlier or laying clothes out the night before. If you want to tame your temper, make time each day to ponder what it is that sets you off. To curb “comfort eating,” have an alternative ready to meet your next craving.
Visualize success. Athletes do it; you should too. In your mind, there’s a “sparkling vision of a new you” that’s already changed for the better. Visualize that new person daily, and change will be easier.
