Cake Your 2022 Amazing! Resolve the Resolution Riddle

Cake Your 2022 Amazing! Resolve the Resolution Riddle

Are you ready to hit 2022 running? Sure you are because we all need a fresh new start to our lives after a troublesome two years of the Rona! With January underway have you given thought to your New Year’s Resolution/s? How often do you stick to them if you make resolutions every year? It’s tough to keep going with a resolution throughout the year, so we thought we’d share some research on it.

Make a cup of coffee, cut a slice of the left-over Celebration Creation cake you have in the fridge (you are still celebrating, aren’t you?), get pen and paper, have a sip and a delicious cakey mouthful, and start making notes.

It is a fact that only 8% of people actually achieve the goals they set on January 1. This is a bit of a scary statistic – let’s try and improve on that, shall we. We know that small goals lead to success, and tracking our progress helps us stay committed. You don’t want your resolutions to crash and burn before you even get started, so ensure the goals you set are meaningful, manageable and SMART - Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. 

  • Create a clear, achievable plan that is ridiculously small and easy to do – you need to slowly work at changing a habit one day at a time. For instance, if you want to improve your fitness, plan to walk for ten minutes every day.
  • Build on the good habits you already have – if you are walking three times a week, build on that and try walking five times a week.
  • Try habit-stacking if you want to start something new. This means you build a new habit onto a current daily routine. For example, after you make your bed in the morning, plan to take your ten-minute walk after that.
  • Often it is not what you do, but when you do it. To see progress, you certainly don’t want to be trying your new walking routine when your energy is low! Make sure you allow space and time in your day to include your new habit.
  • Don’t lose motivation while working towards your goal. Set up a reward system for yourself to remind you to keep going. This could be ticking off a box on your calendar each day or treating yourself to a weekly date with Château Gâteaux. TOP TIP: Keep one of our scrumptious cakes in your freezer so that you can take out (and thaw) one slice at a time!

Make time to savour all we have on offer through our online shop – we have Daily Delights, Signature Cheesecakes, Variety Packs, Mini Collections, Celebration Creations and Accessories.  Better still, pop into one of our stores, available country wide, and take your reward home for instant gratification.

We would love to see you achieve your goals during 2022 without them fizzling out too soon. Our plans are to keep all our customers happy in the New Year, one new cake at a time, one new shopper at a time, one more cheerful employee at a time and one great Château Gâteaux experience at a time.

Happy 2022 everyone!
