Counselor gives tips to defy the odds on ‘National Quitters Day’
Have you been keeping up with your New Year’s Resolution?
When the fun of celebrating the new year wears off, so do many New Year’s resolutions. By the second Friday in January, known as National Quitters Day, more than 80 percent of people abandon their new year’s goals.
Whether you want to run a marathon or save money this year, you don’t have to give up.
If your resolution feels overwhelming, it may be time to reevaluate. Imagine Counseling Center Licensed Counselor Katie Kean said, “Smaller and manageable is usually the way to go. And being able to focus on what you are achieving versus what you are not. You don’t have to quit. Every day is a new opportunity to try something again for the very first time.”
Keeping your resolution manageable might be the key to crossing that finish line.
