WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? BREAKING RESOLUTIONS? BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen

If you find it difficult to keep your resolutions and you have a habit of breaking them, try the following:

  • Make only positive resolutions – such as “Go to more movies” or “Have friends over for a meal”. Make it something that you would find enjoyable to keep.
  • Give up a resolution if necessary. If you find yourself constantly breaking a specific resolution then consider giving it up completely. Don’t let an unfulfilled resolution to lose five pounds block you from making other, smaller resolutions that might give you a happiness boost.
  • Every day keep your resolution. It’s often easier to do something every day – whether it’s exercising, laundry or something else. This creates a routine and a sense of balance in your life.
  • Set a deadline – and
  • Don’t give up if something interferes with that deadline.
  • ·       Keep this quote by Voltaire in mind- “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” If you decide that you are going to clean out your house, start small by tackling one room at a time. Maybe you’ll start with a smaller room first so you won’t feel so overwhelmed.

These are just a few tips to help you keep that resolution you’ve made for yourself. You may find other strategies that work better for yourself, and that’s okay.

May 2010 bring you much happiness!
