Question:

How can I stay motivated to keep my New Year's resolution this year?

Inspire New Year's Resolutions

We all make a New Year's resolution and we are lucky if we make it to February with the resolution intact. To help you and your loved ones stay motivated this year, send an inspirational New Year's card to everyone on your mailing list. A little positive reinforcement might be just the boost your friends need to stick with a resolution all year long.

An inspirational card should feature a feel-good design and a motivating message. Designs with bright or contrasting colors, large graphics or sentimental images are generally the most effective. Inside the card, be sure to choose a greeting that will encourage the recipient to stick to their resolution. Here are a few examples:

  • “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.” - Edith Lovejoy Pierce
  • One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.” - John Burroughs
  • “We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.” - Ellen Goodman
