The New Year is approaching us quickly and you know what that means?
Time to start making those New Years Resolutions! Right?
This idea of changing something or perhaps breaking a bad habit sounds like a great idea. But you don't have to wait until a new year begins to start it. The truth is, if you want to change something, do it now. The truth is, most people actually break those
The earlier the better. It takes about two months for a behavior to become a habit so why not get a head start?
People often get discouraged when they aim too high, causing them to give up on their resolutions sooner. Having an unrelasitic goal may cause one to overetend themselves, leading to unhealthy behaviors. I am not saying to not challenge yourself but, make sure your goal is realistic and that you can reach it in a way that is healthy and safe.
Outline Your Goals
Analyze what exactly it is you want to accomplish with your resolution for yourself. Don't base your goals on other peoples and instead think about what you want for YOU. Make it specific and obtinable.
Don't Give Up
Failure is possible but not a reason to quit. You will have setbacks and bad days but you will overcome them. If you don't complete your goal by the end of the year you start it, adjust it instead of quitting it.
If you want to eat heavier, start by analyzing what you already eat and research what you should actually be doing to have healthier eating habits. Saying you want to eat healthier is one thing but doing it is another.
Track Your Progress
It is important to observe your journey to achieving your goals. But don't obsess over it of course!! The journey you have to achieving your resolution is probably going to be a challenging yet reward process.
Comparing your resolutions to those of someone else can bring unnecessary stress. Focus on you and your needs/wants.
Enjoy the journey, the process, the challenges, and the outcomes!!
