Keeping up with your New Year’s Resolutions can be tough. Products from CBDfx could be the perfect incentive to keep your resolutions going strong all year!

The infamous New Year’s Resolution ⎯ a goal or set of goals you have laid out for yourself in order to help you become the better, more refined person that you’ve been dreaming about. Then comes the classic question: “Why do most fail?” Well, being the best version of yourself takes time and work. The key here is to work smarter ⎯ not harder.
80 percent of people will break their New Year’s Resolutions ⎯ most by February, according to U.S. News & World Report.
With staggering numbers like these, why do resolutions keep failing so miserably? CBDfx knows it can be difficult to commit to the goals you’ve set for yourself, but we believe this year can be different! 2020 is the beginning of a new decade, which means the start of a new you. This new year will be filled with opportunities to become the best version of yourself, allowing you to complete the goals that you set forward.
Take the resolution you’ve crafted in your mind and create short-term goals, as well as dates declaring when you’d like to accomplish them. This ensures that you are reaching every step along the way on the journey to your ultimate goal. The work put in can feel small and completely doable if gone about in the right way.
Additionally, combining your goals this year with CBD products may be the missing piece that could have helped in previous years, where reaching your goals ended up looking more like a fantastic dream than an achievable reality. The path we suggest in this blog post consists of a two-part plan: daily action met with incentive.
We’ll show you what we mean:
Rewarding Your Small Actions
Attaching incentives to certain actions not only works on your young nieces and nephews, but with yourself as well. No matter what your age is, you deserve a treat and recognition for even the smallest of on-track actions. The reason for this is that as you repeat these small actions repeatedly over time, you will get closer to achieving your main goal and securing a happier life. This compounding effect will allow you to hit goals you never thought possible, and you’ll find that this method works more effectively than occasional bursts or expending all your energy, which only ends up leaving you burnt out or disappointed/not committed anymore. Like we said earlier, working smarter and not harder is the best plan of action when tackling goals such as New Year’s resolutions.
Along with this series of small actions every day, there should be a synonymous small series of CBD treats to keep spirits high and excited as you approach the next day.
Resolutions and Delight
Say you added ‘working out’ to your goals. First, we want to address that every workout counts ⎯ even if it’s getting to the gym and stretching for 20 minutes. You got yourself up and to the gym, and that’s more than a lot of people can say. Here are some examples of goals and ways to incentivise:
CBD After The Gym
After a workout, treat yourself to a CBD incentive. We suggest one of our CBD tinctures, followed by a quick trip to your gym’s sauna as a nice reward. Additionally, you could try out a chill shot and some healthy food or a disposable pen and a nap; however you want to treat yourself for accomplishing your short-term goal for the day!
Wanting to get more organized this year? That could mean giving yourself a hit of a CBD vape pen every time you check something off in your newly-bought planner. It’s even worth writing something as small as “wake up on time” or “make the bed” in this daily planner, so that you can always feel like you are ahead of the game and being productive.
Where people seem to go wrong is how they mentally handle their resolutions. Getting down on yourself when constantly checking the small details of your progress is a surefire way to let goals slip through your fingers. Setting goals and following the steps you laid out to get there is enough! Believe in yourself, accomplish the small tasks and don’t micromanage! Everything will work out in the end, give yourself grace; there’s no strict timeline for greatness.
Learning how to save more money? Let’s start small: every time you cross something off the list that is a want and not a need, grab some CBDfx gummies! Save some money each week to put toward that trip you’ve been dreaming of for what seems like an eternity, or for another special occasion. It can all be possible if you choose to acknowledge the small, everyday steps you take along the way, and CBDfx’s wonderful treats are the perfect way to support your journey to the top! Maintain a supply of CBDfx products that can adhere to your goalkeeping schedule, and see how this plan of action can work for you! It’s all about how badly you want to achieve the best version of yourself.
Reward Yourself For Learning
Learning a new skill or talent? You guessed it…a CBD prize for those small wins!
If done correctly, this system of incentives can be incredibly simple, and you will be surprised by how effective it can be. If you are one of the 80 percent that drop their resolutions too early and are open to finding a new way to lay out your goals, try this framework and let us know how it goes! The average New Year’s resolution does not get far. This decade, we should change that. Setting goals should be exciting because it’s a blueprint that allows you to get closer to becoming the person you have always dreamed of being. We all deserve to be our best selves, and CBDfx is here to make sure that you achieve every single one of your resolutions!
