If you’re like most people we know, the New Year means a time of reflection, goal-setting and – you guessed it – resolutions. But have you ever noticed how those resolutions tend to slowly dwindle or disappear entirely after a few weeks into the New Year? This year, make sure that your resolutions stick – your Las Vegas dentist can offer a few tips:
Be realistic: You know yourself better than anyone else. So when you’re making those resolutions, give yourself realistic goals and timeframes. If you’ve never worked out before, don’t resolve to complete an Iron Man this year.
Share your goals: Accountability is a huge part of sticking to your resolutions. If you plan on quitting smoking or saving more money, tell your friends and family (or even your Las Vegas dentist!). It’s motivating when you know that someone might check up on you.
Find a support system: You may want to go further than just sharing your resolutions. Join a class or support group that will introduce you to people with similar goals and help keep you motivated to achieve yours.
Have fun: You’re not very likely to stick to a resolution that you hate, so give yourself a bit of enjoyment. If your goal is to take better care of your teeth (hint, hint), then find a fun, enjoyable Las Vegas dentist to see!

Reward yourself: You deserve a little something for your hard work. When you stick to your resolution or accomplish your goal, give yourself a little something – maybe a vacation, that watch you’ve been eyeing or maybe just a relaxing weekend at home.
