Tuesday Tips: Attaining Goals & Keeping New Year’s Resolutions With Video

resolutionsYesterday on The #ShowUs Show we celebrated New Year’s resolutions. With the New Year just around the corner, we thought it only fitting to dedicate this week’s edition of Tuesday Tips to New Year’s resolutions as well. We’ve put together a list of tips and ideas for tracking your goals and resolutions with Magisto.

Video can be a great method of keeping your resolutions and tracking your progress as you work towards your goals, no matter what they may be – from getting in shape to eating right, quitting a bad habit or learning a new skill.

Take photos and videos now, and then continue to take them as you work towards your goals. Upload them to Magisto to automatically create a series of videos tracking your progress, or a single video rounding up your resolution from start to finish.

And now – a few tips to help you effectively track your progress and attain your goals in 2015!

Be realistic when making your resolutions

First things first – make sure you set attainable goals. If you set goals for yourself that are too lofty, it’s easy to quit. For instance, if you haven’t run in years and you decide you want to start running 12 miles every day, it’ll be really easy to get disheartened after day one. Remember that you have to work your way up to things, so make a resolution you know won’t be impossible to keep.

Make a movie to announce your resolutions

Telling your friends about your intentions for the New Year is a great way to stick to your resolutions. Once you make your goals known by telling other people about them, it becomes harder to quit or give up. Making a movie can be a great way to make this announcement. Create a movie of yourself working towards your goal and share it with a text blurb about your goals, or use the Clean theme and select the “No Music” option to share a video of yourself speaking to the camera about your resolutions.

Track your progress with movie updates

As the year progresses and you get closer to reaching your goal, update friends with periodic movie updates. You can even create an album to house all of your goal-related movies. Click here to find out more about using albums.

If you decide to use Magisto to track your New  Year’s resolutions, let us know! We’d love to see your movie updates and cheer you on as you work towards your goals!

Happy New Year!
