It is commonplace for everyone to make New Year’s resolutions, however, adults with ADHD can experience frustration by not following their list of resolutions for the following year.
In an effort to eliminate that frustration and improve the likelihood of keeping your New Year’s resolutions, follow a simple process throughout the year.
Although New Year's resolutions are often life changing, start with a simple task such as cleaning out a closet, taking a ten minute walk each morning, or organizing your important papers.
Make a list of your resolutions and each day keep notes under each item. Reflect on the event and memorialize your activity which relates to a success. As you progress, you will be able to visualize that you can achieve your goal!
Avoidance and excuses are your enemies. Excuses such as, I must go shopping, it’s raining outside, or I just want to sit down and take it easy won't help you. Each time you consistently undertake the resolution, you change your behavior, and success will follow.
By starting with small tasks, you will experience success by following through each day. Next year your resolutions can be even more “life changing” as you have experienced success in completing your New Year’s Resolution of the past year.
This is a process. You will build your confidence from your past year’s achievements.
