New Year’s resolutions are fun to make. They are also easy to break.
Josh Klapow, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, says the key to setting resolutions that stick is to turn those resolutions into habits.
“Everyone is motivated when they first decide to make a New Year’s resolution,” said Klapow. “The problem is that you can ride the wave of motivation for only a short while. If you want to stick with your resolution, you’d better make it a habit.”
Klapow suggests the S.M.A.R.T. system, which consists of five tricks that can turn any resolution into a habit.
