Ask the Expert - Dr Lisa Wilson - News Years Resolution

Dr Lisa Wilson, Clinical Executive, CPG, discusses the New Year's resolutions people attempt and how to achieve these goals. Most people tend to give up and say to themselves 'what's the point?' but Lisa Wilson talks through the different ways to cope with this barrier and how to commit and stick to goals. Feeling de-motivated can cause us to give up and let self-critical thoughts take over, but this video offers different tips and strategies so we can stick to our goals, such as how to not set unrealistic goals.

1. Why are New Year's resolutions so hard to keep?
We give ourselves unachievable goals, and then we become self-critical when we feel that we can't do them or things aren't working fast enough. Our self-critical thoughts cause us to question ourselves and as a result these thoughts become demotivating and the excitement of completing our goals is diminished.

2. How can I stick to my resolutions?
In order to stick to our goals/resolutions we need to set realistic time frames and set ourselves a main goal with specific goals that can help us achieve it. In order to succeed you must commit to yourself and not let your negative emotions and thoughts take over. Don't forget that you are not alone and ask friends and family for help when you feel things aren't going to plan. Give yourself rewards as you progress and think of different new exciting strategies to help yourself progress and tackle those self-critical thoughts.

3. Why not to give up on New Year's resolutions?
Don't give up on your goals, instead remind yourself why these goals are important and why you made them in the first place. Enjoy the experience, make the most of it, and tell yourself that you CAN do this and not that you can't.
