For many people the new year is a great time for a new start, leading millions of people to make new year’s resolutions. Unfortunately, setting a goal and seeing it through are too different things and many people end up giving up on their resolutions before long.

Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

It’s not easy to keep new year’s resolutions. Whether your goal is to get more exercise, to quit smoking, get a new job or start a new hobby, change is hard and even those with the best intentions can end up breaking their new year’s resolutions. Here are a few reasons resolutions tend to fail.

  • You’ve set yourself up for failure with an unrealistic expectation or too big of change
  • You’re focusing only on results which may not be apparent right away
  • There’s no one to hold you accountable making it too easy to give up or cheat
  • There isn’t a clear plan to follow so it’s hard to track progress or measure success
  • There’s no reward for success and you’re too hard on yourself when you fail

Tips for Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolutions

Now that you know why new year’s resolutions fail, you know what to avoid. We’ve also put together a few creative ways to help you stick to your new year’s resolution using magnets.

Set Daily Reminders

Write your goal on piece of paper or print out a picture and stick it onto your refrigerator with a magnet where you’re sure to see it several times a day.

Motivate Yourself with Repetition

Create your own cheering squad of motivation magnets using 2×2 Bathroom tiles, neodymium magnets, a permanent marker and some Mod Podge to seal them. Then place them throughout your home, office and vehicle in various places you see every day.

Make it Personal

Design and create your own personalized magnet using adhesive sheet magnets. Print out your resolution and stick it to the adhesive side. The thin flexible sheet magnet can be cut into any size or shape with regular scissors. Add your favorite motivational saying or photos for inspiration.

Set Small Obtainable Goals

Breaking down your resolution into bite size pieces can make it easier to stick with it and meet your goals. One way to keep yourself motivated all year is to create a customized magnetic calendar. Have it printed with smaller goals, objectives and reminders set throughout the year to help you stick to your resolution.
