January is upon us and, although hard to believe, another year has started! Many people choose this time of year to reflect on the past year and set new goals for the year - making resolutions to try and do things a little differently.
Keep your goals achievable. Saying you want to exercise 5 times a week if you haven’t been exercising at all, doesn’t seem realistic. Try taking small steps to get more exercise in January. Try by committing to doing 20% more exercise than you did in December. At the end of January raise the bar if you have been achieving your thresholds. If not, keep them in place for another month.
Write down your goals. Seeing your goals in-front of you (on paper or on a screen) can help keep you on track.You can also review your list and feel motivated with your level of success not demotivated because you have not achieved what you set out to achieve. Include goals like taking 15 minutes each day to read instead of watching a screen. Or keeping in touch with your mother/sister/brother/father/niece/nephew or trying a new fruit or vegetable?
Reward yourself for your achievements. If weight loss is one of your goals reward yourself with a new sparkling water, a new hat, a magazine subscription. If increasing the amount of exercise you do is your goal, treat yourself to a new workout outfit or a new yoga mat.
Tell your friends and family about your goals so that they can encourage you to be successful. Telling people what you want to achieve will make you more accountable. It will also give you a sense of pride and accomplishment when you meet your goals and your friends and family can celebrate your achievements.
