How to Stick to Your Resolutions During the Year

stick to your resolutions

So you rang in the New Year, made your New Year’s Resolutions, and you may have been at it for a week or two—but you can already feel yourself falling a little behind. Making a plan for ways to stick to your resolutions throughout 2017 can cause you to be more likely to keep up with and achieve your goals.

Add a Behavior Instead of Taking Away

A lot of times people will set goals that require them to restrict or take away something they enjoy. Instead, trying adding a new behavior—like adding more vegetables to your diet or taking a walk every afternoon.

Track Your Progress

Instead of using external factors like a scale or a food diary, focus on how much better you feel as you accomplish goals in your resolution.

Find a Support Network

Having friends who are also committed to their resolutions makes a difference, or even just recruiting the help of friends who can keep you on task.

Be Realistic

Ultimately, people fail when they feel like they can never reach their goal, so it’s important to have a more realistic approach rather than an ambitious one. Accomplish your goals a little at a time.

It doesn’t have to be hard to stick to your resolutions for the New Year. A little bit of careful planning and revisiting your resolution to see if it’s a good fit goes a long way.

Good luck on your New Year’s Resolution from Haddad Nissan!

Nissan’s Self-Driving Technology Becomes Available in UK

Nissan’s Self-Driving Technology

For the past few years, automakers have been scrambling to be the first one on the market to introduce self-driving technology. However, a lot of brands have resolved to team up with ride-hailing services due to the expensive nature of autonomous driving. However, it seems Nissan will be the first-ever manufacturer to offer a new self-driving option on a production vehicle as soon as this year.

Considering big names like Ford weren’t even planning to have self-driving vehicles on the road until at least 2020, Nissan’s self-driving technology is a big deal. The option will be available on the 2017 Qashqai in the UK market for a relatively small additional fee of £1,500 or, in USD, about $1,910. The system in the Qashqai will be called the ProPILOT and is the first of three different versions that will roll out across Nissan’s lineup in the next four years.

The next version of ProPILOT, Highway Pilot, is coming next year in 2018 and will provide features like the ability to switch lanes and pass other cars, while the third version, Intercity Pilot, will be able to drive autonomously in urban areas. This new self-driving option is a major step toward technology and innovation in Nissan’s lineup and is very exciting to experts and enthusiasts everywhere.

The Haddad Nissan team is very excited about Nissan’s progress towards autonomous vehicles!
