New Year’s Resolutions

Don’t ditch those New Year’s Resolutions: use this guidance to reach your goals.

Whether it be sticking to a healthy diet, boosting your fitness levels or quitting a bad habit, New Year’s resolutions are the perfect reason to alter your lifestyle for the better. However, it’s no secret that these goals are often long forgotten by the end of the year.

Don’t let your resolutions fade away this year – consider the following recommendations to keep yourself on track for reaching your goals:

  • Make it achievable – A common cause of a dumped resolution is setting unrealistic standards. Make sure your goal is possible by setting monthly milestones you can achieve along the way.
  • If you fall down, get up – Everyone experiences setbacks when reaching for their goals. But the most important aspect of failure is to learn from it and move on. If you mess up or have a minor slip in achieving your resolution, don’t obsess over it or give up. You can always start fresh the next day.
  • Treat yourself – The hardest part of making a lifestyle change is developing it into a habit in the first couple of weeks. Be sure to stay on track by rewarding yourself when you reach a milestone. This might include taking a short holiday or a night out with friends after exercising and eating healthy meals each day of the week.

No Resolutions? Consider these Healthy Goals

  • Spend more time outside with a daily walk or run.
  • Eat healthy, balanced meals by using a food diary.
  • Spend less time on social media and more time socialising by scheduling weekly meetings with loved ones.
