The hardest thing about a New Year’s resolution is just formulating a plan and sticking to it.
An easy way to tackle your new goal is to have someone help.
Marquette General Health System behavioral therapist Mindy Miller says a buddy system — having a friend join you in trying to reach the same goal — can be a useful tool.
So is advice from somebody who’s done it before.
If you’re planning to tackle your resolution alone, Miller recommends setting smaller goals.
She also suggests creating a timetable to reach each small goal.
By doing that, you’re more likely to be successful in reaching your larger goals.
