New Year’s resolutions & how to stick to it!
So how can you ensure that your determination to get healthier in 2020 sticks around?
By creating new habits.
Creating new habits takes time and energy.
A new behavior won’t become automatic overnight, but you may enjoy some of its benefits fairly quickly.
To begin with Dream big. Audacious goals are compelling. Want to compete in a marathon or triathlon? Lose 50 pounds or just enough to fit into the clothes you once loved? With perseverance, encouragement, and support, you can do it.
Break big dreams into small-enough steps.
If you start every plan with “Make a list,” you’re guaranteed to check one box off quickly. That’s no joke: a study on loyalty programs that aim to motivate consumers found giving people two free punches on a frequent-buyer card encouraged repeat business.
Make yourself accountable through a written or verbal promise to people you don’t want to let down and a subscribing for personal trainer The most basic responsibility your trainer will have is simply being at the gym, expecting you to arrive. Knowing your trainer is there waiting, clients will be much more likely to get out of bed and not skip the gym that day. Your friends may not want to meet you at the gym at 6 am, and there may not be a group exercise class at 3 p.m., but your trainer will be there to help train you on your schedule, no matter what time. That will encourage you to slog through tough spots.
The meaning of resolution is “a firm decision to do or not to do something.” The keywords are “firm decision”. If you make a firm decision about something then you must also take action and set a deadline, in other words, set a goal!
