HOW TO STAY ON TRACK FOR THE NEW YEAR
Start Small & Easy. You want to set yourself up for success. Setting up small goals that you can accomplish will help to reinforce behaviors that support your long term goal as well as provide you with a sense of control. An example would be, if you’re trying to get fit start by walking for 10 minutes a day for the first week and then increase it from there. The same can be applied to healthy eating habits. Start by eating at least 1 healthy meal for 2 weeks and then add another heathy meal to your daily routine.
Start Early. Most people have more energy earlier in the day. Take advantage of this by exercising in the morning or afternoon. Another great way to kick start your day is by having a healthy and filling breakfast. Breakfast will boost your metabolism and provide you with energy throughout the day.
Make It Fun. When you make it fun you’re more likely to stick with it. We protest and reject hard, laborious, and unpleasant tasks and embrace those that are fun. If you dread the gym, then try to find a fun exercise program. Maybe it’s an outdoor boot camp or biking along a scenic route. If you want to develop better eating habits but don’t like the taste of healthy food, then take a cooking class. These also promote social interaction and provide good information and they’re also fun!
Forget the All or Nothing Mentality. Good health isn’t all or nothing; every salad, green juice and exercise counts. Some people often feel like they have to give up everything they enjoy in order to be healthy, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Take small steps toward a better health each day, and eventually things like exercising and eating vegetables will become habits instead of chores.
Track Your Non Scale Victories. Measure your success by how you feel, how your clothes fit or how much stronger you are. The scale may not reflect these victories, so don’t let the scale dictate your feeling of success or accomplishment.
