Most importantly, don’t beat yourself up if you don’t at first succeed. Look at what you have accomplished so far and console yourself. Maybe you’ll give in and sprinkle real, not vegan, cheese on your pasta, or make it to the gym only once a month, not every week: that’s OK. After all, you are asking a lot of yourself, trying to form new habits. Not an easy task. Sometimes, if you’ve really tried but just haven’t made it, it can help to think about what you have achieved.
So, there you have it - whether you smash it, get half-way or slip-up at the start - give yourself a hearty pat on the back for trying. Then picking yourself, dust yourself off and make the most of 2019. One thing is certain. You’ll only have one crack at this year, so you want to make the most of it.
