A New Year Doesn’t Require Big Changes
Have you ever noticed that whenever a new year rolls around, there are non-stop television, radio, and internet ads for gym memberships? Or that your physical and email mailboxes are filled with “exciting limited offers” on expensive trend diets and meal plans? The fact is companies try to capitalize on people’s New Year resolutions of diet and exercise during the early months of a new year. To avoid the traps and quick ends to resolutions that we often suffer, consider a more maintainable approach such as this:

Choose goals that are sustainable

Treat your healthier life as a marathon and not a sprint. You are unlikely to find long-term success if you haven’t regularly exercised in years, then set a sudden goal of working out 5 hours every single day. Instead, create a plan to stay active by thinking of physical activities or sports that you enjoy, and making a regular habit of participation. Examples may be a running group, a weekly CrossFit group, or even a recreational adult kickball team.
Monthly Words of Empowerment
“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”
