Tips To Stick To Your New Years Resolutions
As we approach the end of January, it is a time when most new years resolutions are also starting to wane. According to a US News & World report, around 80% of people fail their new year’s resolutions, with most out of the window by mid-February. The majority of new Year resolutions are health or fitness related and many start the year wanting a healthier body. If this is you, then why not make this the year that you don’t break your resolution? No matter what, there are certain things you can do to ensure you have a better chance of sticking to your resolution. Here are some tips…
Enlist family and friends to help
Sticking to a New Year fitness resolution is a lot easier if you enlist your loved ones to help you. This means that you can’t give up as easily as not only will you be letting yourself down, but you will be letting them down too. After all, it is much more guilt-free to skip a run or a workout when the only person you have to tell is yourself; getting the guts to tell your friend, however, is a different story. They will likely try to motivate you into going out with them and getting that workout done.
Don’t be afraid to try alternative methods
Let’s face it, trying to get healthy is no easy feat. If you are trying to give up smoking for example, but can’t go completely cold turkey, why not try something such as Killapods to help you out? These can give you a nicotine fix without the nasty side effects that you get from smoking. If you are on a diet, why not look into a dedicated diet plan? There are many you can sign up for online that can give you a virtual personal trainer and help to track your progress along the way.
Get a fitness watch
A fitness watch is brilliant for making you more motivated to stick to your health and fitness goals. There are so many out there on the market, from a Fitbit to an apple watch and it is down to you to find the best one for your needs. These watches can track everything from your daily step count to the calories you have eaten and any workout you have done so are great for keeping on top of what you are consuming and doing.
Set yourself realistic goals
When setting up your resolution you want to set realistic goals for yourself. The last thing you want is to task yourself with losing too much weight and when it doesn’t happen right away, you feeling disheartened. By doing smaller but realistic achievements you will be able to celebrate these when they happen and you won’t end up feeling demoralized.
These are just a few ways that you can stick to your new year’s resolutions a bit more efficiently in 2021. What are your top tips? Let us know in the comments below!
