How to keep your New Year’s Resolutions

As 2013 draws to a close it is time to reflect on the last year and plan for the new one. Many people – myself included – like to do this with New Year’s resolutions. Making a resolution at the turn of the New Year is one of humanities oldest traditions. The Romans used to usher in the New Year by making promises to Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions. Later medieval knights took the “The Vows of the Peacock” after Christmas, committing themselves to the ways of chivalry for the coming year.

Here at the Maria Sanchez Show we have a few tips to keep you on track. The first is to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Start slow with your resolutions, setting yourself up for constant victory. For instance, instead of pledging to go to the gym four days a week, pledge to go one. In that case if you go three times you are doing great as opposed to feeling like you are not quite making it. Also, remember to be kind to yourself, you will have slip-ups and they don’t necessarily mean failure.
