Using Labels to Help Stick With Your Resolutions
It is 2 weeks into the New Year, and many people are working on their New Years resolutions to improve something in their lives. If your resolution involves breaking free from a bad habit it will take time and patience, but will be worth it in the end.
Labels can be a great motivational messaging system to help you stick with your resolutions. They can be used as reminders, warnings, or just have motivational quotes on them that will help you push forward with the positive changes that you are making.
Here are 5 different ways that we recommend using blank labels to help keep you on track to successfully follow your resolution.
When breaking yourself of bad habits you will have moments where you may revert back to your old mindset and do something that will trigger a bad decision. Placing small reminders around these things that may trigger the bad habits can be a huge help in reaching your goals.
For example, you may have a favorite dessert that is one of the things you are trying to avoid. If you typically have this dessert with a cup of coffee after dinner, coffee can make the urge to have the dessert even stronger. Placing a removable label on or near your coffee pot can remind you that coffee may not be the best choice at the time. These little reminders will help you stick to your guns at a time when you could use the extra help.
Another excellent way to help you stay on track with personal goals is to read quotes that will motivate you when times get tough. Printing these quotes on labels and placing them where they will be seen can help give you that extra push.
Here are some inspiring quotes that can help to motivate in any situation:
- Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently." Henry Ford
- "Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." Dale Carnegie
- “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas A. Edison
- "The best way out is always through." Robert Frost
- "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." Albert Einstein
Having someone that provides words of encouragement and positive energy can be a nice asset when trying to better yourself. they cannot always be around though, so have someone you love and trust fill out some labels for you. They can leave nice positive messages for you to help you keep on moving towards your goals.
This is something you can even do yourself. You can write down the reasons of why you are making the change, how it will better your life, and any other reminders of why this change is needed. The reasons why you are doing this should be your driving force, and using them as a positive reinforcement tool will help push you along.
What if you are trying to give up something that others in your household love and regularly have around the house? The temptation will be very hard to resist in this case, but strong willpower and subtle reminders of your goals can help.
This is another perfect situation where you can use blank labels to help you stay on the right path. Fluorescent labels work great in cases like these because they will naturally draw your eyes towards them. You can place these where you feel you may be tempted to cheat on your resolution, and they will give you the warning needed to walk away.
Keeping Goals in Sight
Keeping your goals in sight is the biggest factor for success, so having constant reminders of your goals will be an importance factor in your success. With labels you can write down all of your goals so no matter where you are they are in your face.
Some of the places where these can be placed include your car sun visor, a removable label on your bathroom mirror, on the inside of your jacket so you always see it before going outside, and even on your microwave. There are many other places where these labels can be placed to help you successfully accomplish your New Years resolutions.
