Good resolutions for the new year's Eve, seven tricks to not give up
the ROME - The slaughter of the good intentions. 93% of the people if them imposes on new year's Eve, but half of them have already abandoned before the end of February and only one in five keeps them for the whole year. A dynamic that it seems impossible to scratch. Now, however, the psychology runs to the aid of people with good intentions just can't get along, helping him to keep faith with the promises. the Jelena Kecmanovic , a psychologist at Georgetown University, on the website The Conversation she offers up one behind the other seven tricks that can help in the undertaking. Here they are.

The first tip is to clarify the reasons why you take a certain commitment . If you want to lose weight, for example, it is better to think about the benefits to health rather than to social pressure. "The people that are driven by authentic values - underlines the expert - are more brave to reach our goals." The resolutions, then, must be considered in positive terms , and rather than promising not to drink alcohol during the week is best to think of wanting to drink their favourite beverage. It is essential, explains Kecmanovic, also remove from the environment all the temptations, also asking to the people around us to help us in the enterprise, for example not bringing sweets into the office. In any case, it is better to prepare 'contingency plans'. "Every time you wake up in the night with the desire for chocolate or chips, you can plan instead to read a magazine, or eat an apple slowly, savoring every bite". it Is also important to proceed gradually, by fixing the intermediate step for example, if you decide to eat less.

To reinforce the good intentions is also useful visualize in advance the positive effects that you want to achieve , for example imagining the positive feelings that you have after a good race. The last piece of advice is ' be forgiving with yourself, even in failure '. "Most people think that the way to increase the strength of will is force yourself, because being forgiving is a sign of lack of discipline - said the expert - but the truth is the exact opposite, the people who are to blame for the little failures of his own strength of will tend to not keep the resolutions on the long term".
