Within a blink of an eye, the first few weeks of the New Year have come and gone. Have you been sticking to your resolutions? If not, don’t fret! Change doesn’t have to start on January 1st, it can start now!
It’s no secret that children and adults with ADHD or other learning disorders have a hard time sticking to a plan and completing tasks. We’re here to help you keep your New Year’s resolution. Here are five tips that can keep you on track:
1. Change = Gradual Process
Look at change as a gradual process and it will become clear that ‘anytime’ is an opportune time to start making your goal a reality. Make sure the goals you choose are manageable, that way it doesn’t become overwhelming and you’ll enjoy what you’re doing.
2. Put it in writing!
Write down your goals then list the advantages of completing them. Make copies and post them around the house, place it anywhere you’ll see it. That way when you feel your motivation is slipping you can read it and remember why you started to begin with.
3. Social accountability.
Post your challenge on your social media sites with daily updates about your progress as well as any struggles you encounter. This will give you the extra encouragement to continue achieving your goal.
4. Get a partner in crime.
Get a “partner in crime” whether that be your spouse, parents or friends. Having a support team will give you the extra push to complete your goals.
5. Make a schedule and set reminders.
Making a schedule will break up your goal into small manageable parts.
