The new year is right around the corner and you may start thinking of what New Year’s resolution you are going to set for 2020. This is the perfect time to reflect on the past year’s behaviors and promise yourself to make positive lifestyle changes in the coming year. I want to help you make that resolution stick by creating some lifestyle changes!
Here are some tips to create a successful New Year’s Resolution:
RealisticThere is a greater chance that you will keep your resolution throughout the year if it is realistic. You should be able to incorporate your new behavior into your daily life. Think about what you have going on in your life right now and what is reasonable for your new goal.
Start with setting a small goal! If you want to work out more, is it possible to workout 2-3 days a week or 7 days a week? Once you can sustain your goal, add on more to challenge yourself and progress.
Allow Yourself Time
It is going to take time to change unhealthy behaviors to healthier behaviors. Change does not happen overnight, so trust the process. Focus on changing just one behavior at a time, so it is less overwhelming.
Give Yourself Wiggle Room
Do not expect yourself to be perfect when it comes to changing your habits. It is completely normal to have a minor slipup. Did you skip your workouts one week because you were too busy? That’s okay! Life happens, just get back on track. Tomorrow is a new day.
Being able to share your resolution along with its struggles and successes with family and friends can help you stick to your goal. It is very powerful to have someone to be accountable to besides yourself.
Ask for Support
There is nothing wrong with asking for help! If you feel overwhelmed, need extra accountability, or you’re unable to meet your goals on your own, consider reaching out for professional help.
