New years resolutions; to become fit and healthy!
Is this going to be another year you’re made a new years resolution to lose weight or to get fit without success? Why not consider making a new years resolution with a difference and is equally as healthy.
So many of us making new year’s resolutions every year without success, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world are making them, the most common are to lose weight, quit smoking, get fit, drink less alcohol, eat more fruit and veg and make more money.
How many of us actually make a new years resolution to get fit and healthy or to lose weight and stick to it, and achieve the results that they wanted, believe me, not many! The reason why so many news resolutions fail is because the resolutions are set to high, to large to many. To successfully achieve your resolutions you need to make one small short-term goal at a time, these are much more effective and you will have a better chance of success.
Instead of making a resolution that is obviously very unrealistic or unachievable, let’s set some goals with a difference this year.
Firstly to make a resolution stick and become successful with it we are talking about giving up things, which might take an awful lot of will power, self-control and motivation, which is not easy for a lot of people.
Instead of simply saying that you’re going to loss weight or get fit, why don’t you be more specific, like ‘I’m going to stop eating bread’ or ‘I’m going to eat less chocolate’? These are more realistic goals rather than saying you are going to eat less, exercise more.
Get help achieving your New Year’s resolution.
By getting a friend involved helps keep you both focused.
Make only one resolution.
Choosing just one aspect of your health to improve will increase your chances of success.
Plan your resolution in advance.
This will give you time to think about your goal and how to achieve it.
Don’t repeat last year’s resolution.
Keep the resolution specific and write it down. Plan a reward for when you achieve your goal. This will give you something to focus on.
Keeping a New Year’s resolution can be tough. A promise made hastily, when you feel guilty after Christmas, can quickly be forgotten when you return to your normal routine in January.
