Everything you need to crush your New Year's resolutions


If you're making a New Year's resolution for 2019, good for you! But as you probably know, actually sticking to your goals is much harder than setting them.

According to a 2002 study in the Journal of Clinic Psychology, researchers found that only about 46 percent of people were still sticking to their resolutions six months into the year. While that number isn't exactly encouraging, the study also showed that those who made resolutions had higher rates of success than those who didn't.

So, there's something to be said about setting your goals at the beginning of the year. However, you have to choose the right goals for you and set yourself up to succeed. Whether it's exercising more, traveling more, eating healthier or saving more money, here are a few things to help you achieve your New Year's resolutions.

Resolution: Practice more self-care

Resolution: Exercise more

Resolution: Eat healthier

Resolution: Travel more

Resolution: Read more books
