How to Avoid Roadblocks

Even when you set realistic, attainable resolutions for yourself, you’ll still face roadblocks along the way. Here’s how to face them head-on so that you can meet your goals!

Fall Forest Runner1) Be patient with yourself. No one is perfect and, as we said before, behavior change is tough! Know that change doesn’t happen overnight and don’t beat yourself up if you slip up occasionally.

2) Remember that one stumble doesn’t mean failure. While you should be patient and forgiving of yourself when you do slip up, bear in mind that a small slip up doesn’t mean that you’ve failed and should give up. If you’ve resolved to give up dessert on weekdays but have two bites of cake one night, that doesn’t mean that you should cave and eat a massive slice!

3) Think of the big picture. It is easy to get tunnel vision when it comes to your resolutions, so remember the peripheral positive impacts that your resolutions will have on your life. If you’re trying to lose 10 pounds, for example, think about the ways that eating healthier and exercising more are improving your long-term health.

4) Celebrate small victories along the way. You may have a big goal in mind, but reward yourself for the smaller milestones along the way. Just be sure that your celebrations don’t derail your progress. If your resolution is financial, for example, find a way to celebrate without blowing your new budget.
