Tips for sticking to your goals

Did you know that the majority of people have broken their new year’s resolution by the second week of January! Well here at Collagen Lift Paris we believe making self-improvements in one’s life is a year round pursuit, so here are a few tips on how to set goals and make them stick.

Be picky about your goals

We may want to lose weight, eat more vegetables, volunteer more, quit smoking and spend more time with family. But experts say that’s too many goals. Pick one, maybe two things you’d like to focus on and go all in. This sets you up to achieve specific goals instead of feeling like a failure for hitting none of them.

Plan your goal

It’s best to plan for your goal. Think through how you want to accomplish your goal and how long it might take to reach your goal. For example, if your commitment is to quit smoking, research how long it takes an average person to kick the habit and the possible setbacks to expect. Proper planning will help ensure you can see it through to the end.

Set very specific goals

Many of us will set a goal like “exercise more.” But what does that really mean? Instead, you should be detailed in your commitment. It could be “exercise 30 minutes daily.” This gives you a measurable goal to reach each day that you can check off your list. It will help you feel more accomplished.

Don’t take on too much

Start small. Avoid setting an overly high expectation of yourself. If you’d like to lose weight, pick a small but realistic weight loss goal. Maybe that’s 10 pounds in two months. Once you reach that goal, you can think about losing another 5-8 pounds. Setting small goals can help you achieve big results.

Choose a new goal

Avoid picking a goal that you’ve tried in the past but failed. You may set yourself up to fall into the same pitfalls that stopped you previously. Instead, pick something different where you can set up a better path to success. Or maybe you can modify a previous goal if that’s something you still want to accomplish.

Identify accountability partners for support

Lean on people – whether it’s a friend to keep your exercise goal on track, or a spouse to help with healthier eating habits. We function better with community around us, motivating and reminding us why we chose that goal in the first place.

Give your goal time to become a habit

New routines don’t just become habit overnight. A 2009 study found that on average, it takes 66 days to form a new habit. Be patient with yourself. If you have minor setbacks or don’t hit your goal one week, pick it back up the next week. Just keep working at your goal and eventually it can become second nature.

If taking care of yourself is one of your goals, Collagen Lift Paris can help you achieve you goal by working from the inside to boost and stimulate your own collagen production for improved hair, skin and nails…. but also, many other proven benefits such as joints and gut health. We make it simple, one ampoule a day, taken on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before eating. Most of our customers easily include that in their morning routine.
