From idea to reality
Rule number one when it comes to New Year's resolutions is: think realistically. It is better to focus on changing one thing at a time than trying to change many things at the same time. Sit down with pen and paper and write down a list of what you really want to change, why and how. Don’t overwhelm yourself with too many promises. Think about what you would really like to focus on this year and prioritise that.

Have realistic expectations
If you are single at the end of the year, it is natural to want to find a partner in the coming year. Although you may think that a new love will be good for your well-being, ask yourself first if you are really ready for a relationship. Answer honestly if this is the case, or if this a time to focus on yourself? If you are sure that you want and are ready for a relationship, dedicate yourself to it wholeheartedly! Start, for example, with online dating and finding love online. Be open and try to put yourself into social situations with opportunities to meet new people. Set milestones and reward yourself when these are achieved, remember it is not always the destination but the journey that can be rewarding. When online dating, take your time – don’t go on a date every weekend, instead prioritize quality over quantity.
