New Year's Resolutions for Seniors (and How to Keep Them)

January 14, 2021

When you think of New Year’s goals, it may be associated with feelings of failure or disappointment. Make some goals this year that are inspiring and motivational while remaining realistic. Take a look at some ideas for New Year’s goals.

New Year’s Resolutions for 2021

  1. Teach a child or grandchild your favorite recipe.
  2. Reconnect with an old friend who you lost touch with over the years.
  3. Get a pedometer and set a reasonable step goal.
  4. Act on your generous thoughts and send a text or write a letter anytime you think of someone and how proud you are of them. 
  5. Make a reading goal to get through x amount of books in 2021, challenging yourself to try a few genres you don’t usually choose. 

It can be possible to achieve these goals! And think of the residual benefits you will reap when working on these simple aspects of your life. By reconnecting with an old friend, you will gain a friendship that you can cherish and share commonalities. By reading new types of books, you can expand your culture and understanding of the changing world around you. 

How Do You Keep Goals that You Set?

It’s easier said than done to set a goal and achieve it. Place some motivational tactics in your routine to remind you of the excellent progress you are making in your goals. 

  • Invite a partner to join you in your goal.
  • Leave visual reminders around the house. 
  • Make a chart where you can check the box or track your progress on a calendar. 
  • Recognize small wins, and don’t be so hard on yourself if you experience setbacks.
  • Do not give up. It takes at least 3-weeks to build a habit. Stay consistent and quickly get back on track. 

All of these tips can help you in achieving the well-rounded aspirations you set for yourself. Cut yourself from slack and know that perfection is not expected. Slow and steady progress will lead you to small changes that grow into long-term wins over time.
