(WMAR) - The ball has dropped. The celebration has stopped. We're 17 days into 2018.
"One of the toughest things is not setting the goals but keeping the New Year’s resolution."
Mia Redrick, the Mom Strategist says most people who set resolutions, cannot even remember them weeks or months later. She's got a tip for that.
"The first thing I recommend is creating a vision board, putting the resolutions on a board so that they are prominently displayed in front of you. Put them somewhere that you visit every single day like your office or next to your bedroom."
Redrick says you can even make it your screen saver, but just as important, make goals that are attainable.
"I think great resolutions are regarding personal development. Sometimes when we don't reach our goals it's not because the goals aren't reachable, it's because we need to do some work in order for that goal to be attainable."
Work like sweat equity if your goal is to lose weight. If you need help along the way, Redrick says there's an app for that.
"Maybe you have a cardio goal and you struggle using that treadmill or using the elliptical and you download an app like Aaptiv which I love by the way. It's a great app so that you have a trainer in your ear when you're doing those tough things that relate to those goals that don't seem quite doable."
There's a lot of 2018 to go, so Redrick says to make sure you go easy on yourself and your goals.
"A milestone goal is rewarding yourself along the way for achieving small parts of that goal."
