Tools to Help with Your New Year’s Resolutions

by Anne Middleton, on December 23rd, 2015

Did you achieve all of your resolutions last year or did you misplace your list?  Just 8% of us achieve our New Year’s resolutions. If you’re pondering whether or not to set some goals for 2016, here’s some tips to maximize your chance of success. 

1.  Make your goals specific.  Instead of saying “lose weight”, try “cutting the amount of potato chips I eat by half.”

2. Get a buddy.  Have a friend who has similar goals?  Keep each other accountable. Exercising together can strengthen your bond with your mate as well. 

3. Create bench marks.  Besides articulating your goals well and making sure their manageable, you need a way to measure your progress.   Apple Watches from T-Mobile will help you monitor your overall health, but you make need an app like Lose It in the Apple app store to more closely track a weight loss goal.

4. Nearly 47% of resolutions are self-improvement and education oriented, and not weight related.    There are so many tools in the Apple app store to help you with your self-improvement goals, from meditation apps to gratitude journals to productivity enhancement apps.  Hone in a specific goal, and get the apps on your iPad from Verizon to support you on your self-improvement journey. 

New Year’s resolutions are a great opportunity to open the new year, if you approach them right.  Grandiose goals will probably not be achieved, but if you buddy up on a smaller, more attainable goal, you will maximize your success.  We’re here to help you with your financial goals, so be sure to shop with our discount codes for Verizon and T-Mobile for all your mobile device and service needs and save every day of the year.  Happy New Year!
