los angeles therapistEXCERPT: Yvonne Thomas is a licensed psychologist in Los Angeles with over twenty years of experience, three degrees in psychology, and a variety of specialties including increasing motivation and self-esteem. She suggests that we write down our goals for the New Year. “Once you have identified what your New Year resolution will be, concretely write down a plan to give yourself a clear, realistic idea of what it will take achieve this. Having a specific plan will also help you more quickly recognize if and where you get de-railed so that you can get back on track faster. Note that it is important to organize the plan into manageable steps that are very doable and practically foolproof which will allow you to keep making progress and, consequently, keep positively reinforcing you to stick to your commitment.”
