A New Year is just a start to a new you. As thousands of people will sit down to run their mind for any improvement they can make for the upcoming year, only about 10% of people actually stick to their New Year’s resolutions.
Below are some reasons you may be breaking your New Year’s Resolution and how to do a better job in 2013.
YOU’RE SETTING YOUR STANDARDS TOO HIGH:
If you know the Snooze button is your best friend, then don’t set a goal to workout in the mornings at the start. Set a goal to workout right when you get home from work, before even sitting down.
NOT LOOKING AT THE END GOAL:
Don’t think about what you could be doing other than jumping on your treadmill, instead think about the health you will be receiving from your workouts.
YOU’RE TOO BUSY:
Cut out your favorite TV show or sign off Facebook, you will be surprised what you can make time for if you try.
Be accountable to someone or yourself. Try grabbing a friend, neighbor, or family member to join in on your resolution. If you are going at it alone, make a tally. This will keep you on track and make you motivated to keep up your streak.
If you don’t want to be a marathon runner, then don’t commit to run one. Try a 5K or set a goal to power walk everyday. Find your passion and strive for that.
2013 is a new year for New Year’s Resolutions and another shot at your goals. Make yourself proud, find your passion, and stick to it.
