Spiritual & Self-Help Books: Reflect and Maintain Your New Year's Resolutions

By ThriftBooks Team • January 13, 2022

With 2022 officially underway, you may be actively looking for ways to improve your life by bettering yourself. While an amicable goal, setting New Year's resolutions and keeping them can be challenging. Though they may not be "your thing," self-help books can give you the wisdom you need to identify areas of your life that need improvement, set meaningful goals, and give you the strength and conviction you need to maintain throughout the year and beyond.

Quick Tips for Making and Establishing New Year's Resolutions

Before you start shopping for New Year's resolution books, it is important to understand how to make resolutions that stick. Though the tricks for doing so will vary depending on who you ask, researchers at Harvard Medical School have identified seven steps that are most likely to lead to successful outcomes:

  • Dream big
  • Break your big dream into more manageable steps
  • Understand what has kept you from making healthy changes in the past
  • Commit to yourself
  • Reward yourself
  • Learn from your failures, but don't punish yourself for them
  • Show gratitude for the steps you do take

So, now that you understand what to do (and not do) to establish and maintain healthy goals, it's time to start shopping for a reflection book or two. With the overwhelming number of self-help books available, though, where do you start?
