Happy New Year everyone! With the start of a new year often comes new year’s resolutions. Have you made resolutions in the past that you just can’t seem to stick to? If so be sure to check our top tips to help you stay on track when it comes to your new year resolutions in 2021…
- Set a specific goal
Often people cam make the mistake of setting goals that are too broad such as ‘get in shape’. Rather than choosing something so ambiguous, focus on something that’s more tangible that you can realistically stick to. This could be something like ‘do three exercise classes a week’ or ‘run a mini-marathon’.
- Don’t spread yourself top thin
Don’t fall into the trap of setting yourself a long list of New Year’s resolutions. Try to pick one that you can focus your efforts on.
- Plan, plan, plan!
When you’ve chosen your goal, spend some time planning how you’re going to achieve it. Start by writing down your goal, making a list of things you can do to get there, and note any obstacles that might stand in your way. By knowing exactly what you want to accomplish and the difficulties you might face, you’ll be better prepared to stick to your resolution and overcome anything that might sidetrack you.
- Start small
Many resolutions fail because people take on too much too quickly. Focus on small steps that will ultimately help you to reach your larger goal.
- Get support
Tell your friends and family about your goals as this can help you to stay motivated and accountable. One of your loved ones may also be reaching for the same goal, which is fun to aim for together!
