Tip: Choosing your New Year’s Year s Resolution If you want to have a New Year’s resolution this year, here are some tips to help you pick your goal! 1. Think of something that you want to do, not something that others tell you that you should do. 2. Think of a clear and measurable goal. For example, rather than thinking, I want to be happier, think of what exact things you could do to be happier. I want to go to the movies more often or I want to get a cat, etc. 3. Break down your main resolution into smaller goals. If someone had the goal of losing 10 pounds, they could have smaller goals to go along with it, like walking 10 minutes a day or drinking four cans less of soda a week.
