How to Keep a New Year's Resolution

Goals for 2016

Ever wonder why you make the same resolutions year after year and don't accomplish them? Paying off debt, losing weight--keeping that weight off--are all things you genuinely want to do. January 1st rolls around and you've got the plan and the motivation, but often by the end of January, life has gotten in the way and you move on from your goals. 

One way to try to keep yourself true to your resolutions is sharing them with others. "When you keep resolutions a secret, no one is going to check up on you. You're only accountable to yourself," says Joe Ferrari, professor of psychology at DePaul University in Chicago. You could throw a party and have everyone share their goals for the year, or even simpler, use social media to share resolutions with friends near and far. We took that advice at Fleet Feet Sports Mishawaka and some of our staff shared their 2016 New Year's Resolutions:
