Self-Improvement For 2022: New Year New Me

The new year is a great time to make positive changes in your life, but most resolutions don’t last as long as most people would like. They might last for a few days, but then it’s back to business as usual.

The problem is that we’re constantly bombarded by distractions and temptations to break our goals. It takes a lot of willpower to stay focused on your long-term goals when there are so many short-term pleasures in your way.  

According to statistics, only 12% of people feel that they successfully achieve their New Year’s resolutions. But why do we have trouble sticking with our goals? How can we stay motivated and keep making progress toward these goals?

Not to worry, 2022 will be the year because we have what you need. This blog post includes some simple, but effective, tips for self-improvement and how you can invest in yourself now in ways that will pay off later on. 

Well, I hope you’re not *actually* waiting til January 1st, but if you are, we’d better get started.

Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail and How to Keep The Momentum Going

The start of a new year is always a time for change and self-improvement. It’s a time to set goals and resolutions for the year ahead and to work on becoming the best possible version of ourselves.

However, there seem to be a few misconceptions of what the point of resolutions actually is – to make and maintain (hopefully) healthy habits.

Here are some reasons that resolutions fail so that yours for 2022 won’t:

  • Unrealistic goals
  • Overwhelm
  • Distractions
  • No plan

From a psychological perspective, self-improvement requires long-term thinking and investing in yourself will pay off later on. It’s a good idea to start setting goals now, even though the results of your efforts won’t be visible until down the line.

Some things that you can do to invest in yourself now include:

  • Building a support network of friends and family who will help you stay on track
  • Creating a system for tracking your progress so you can see how far you’ve come
  • Choosing goals that are meaningful to you and that inspire you to keep going
  • Investing in coaching or therapy to help you work through any personal blocks that might be holding you back

So these are just a few things that you can do to help yourself stay on track with your resolutions for the year ahead. But it’s important to remember that self-improvement is a lifelong journey, and there’s always room for growth and change.

Planning and proper organisation have been proven to help people in increasing their productivity, but recently, there are lots of articles claiming that having a schedule for yourself is not important when it comes to self-development. I couldn’t disagree more.

What makes me think so? Because planning is the only thing you need in order to have control over your time, and therefore not let those resolutions slip through your fingers as life gets busy, because it is inevitable that it will.

If you need help finding planners and lists that take care of it all, take a look at our incredibly inspirational range of magnetic fridge planners and lists, available in a variety of beautiful designs, to help you start the New Year off on the right foot.

Because it’s not just the start of a New Year, it’s also the start of a NEW YOU.
