I’ve also discussed a specific lesson using New Year’s Resolutions in my December New York Times post (by the way, look for my January post there this Thursday).
There are always a lot of columns written about this time sharing advice on how to make New Year’s resolutions succeed, and much of it is contradictory.
I thought I’d share a few of them which I think are the best, and which could be used in a lesson next year when school is back in session. And much of the advice in them can be used at any time during the year to help students – and ourselves – make changes. Feel free to suggest more:
Oliver Burkeman on Failed New Year’s Resolutions is from Newsweek.
10 Step Guide for Making Your New Year’s Resolutions is from Psy Blog.
Making Resolutions That Stick is from NPR.
Top Ten Strategies For Making Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick is from Lifehacker.
