Most folks lose sight of their New Year's resolutions quickly.
We generally give up on our resolutions because we try to accomplish too many things at one time and we lack the willpower to maintain proper focus.
However, according to a recent article in USA Today, psychologists indicate that we can improve willpower through simple exercises. For example, by focusing on one item at a time, we're much more likely to be successful with our goals.
Practicing self-control in easy situations, minimizing temptations and finding someone to keep us accountable are just a few additional ways we can be more effective in using our willpower successfully.
