New Year Resolution Worksheet For Kids

The clock is struck twelve, confetti falls and the familiar sound of “New Year’s resolutions” is heard. The year 2024 is about to begin and brings with it the promise of a new beginning and self-improvement. In the midst of gym memberships and the detox programs, it’s worthwhile to pause and think about whether these resolutions are just fleeting promises that will go to the graveyard with a stale goal or do be transformed into valuable guidelines for personal development.

The Resolution Paradox Why do they fail so Oft?

The numbers paint a grim picture. A staggering 88% (according to some studies) of resolutions made for the new year break in the first week. Why? We’re often enticed by quick fixes and grand declarations. We declare war against bad habits by setting unrealistic goals without any specifics or an implementation plan. Frustration and discouragement are the result of failureThis leads us to return to our old habits, defeated and discouraged.

Reframing The Resolution From Gimmicks to a Growth Mindset

Resolutions should not be viewed as a list of stifling goals. Instead they should be seen as a means to attain intentional growth. Focusing on the process instead of the outcome is the most important thing. Instead of trying to achieve the perfect body, concentrate on establishing healthy eating habits and working out every day. Make sure you stick to a regular exercise routine and celebrate the small wins as you progress.

From Aspiration To Action weaving a web of Meaningful Resolutions

  • Accept flexibility and iteration. Life can throw curveballs. Be flexible and adaptable to your goals. If you realize that a goal you’ve set is too much or doesn’t align to your current values, it may be an appropriate time to alter or take it off the table.
