Taking On Those New Year Resolutions: Top Tips To Keep You On Track
When the last drink has been drunk, the last piece of cheese has been devoured, and you are starting to wonder how you will ever get rid of the sluggish feeling you have while in the post holiday season haze. That, is what new year resolutions are for, aren’t they? The chance to get back to normal, feel good at about yourself and kick off the brand new year in style. But, if we are all going to be a bit honest with ourselves, the motivation can seriously lack during the course of January and beyond, and more often than not, we forget the resolutions were even made. However, I wanted to share with you some of the tips to help keep you on track. So if you are wanting to lose a few pounds, or seriously want to feel good on the inside or the out, hopefully these tips will help you smash those targets for good.
Be realistic with what you want to achieve
Resolutions can be a little far fetched at times. Sure, you may have desires to lose a lot of weight, run a marathon, or get that promotion at work, but the truth is, it won’t happen overnight and certainly not in the month of january. It is great to have these big goals, they are your end target, but in the meantime try and be realistic and set smaller more achievable targets for the journey ahead. Losing a lot of weight might be what you ultimately want to do, but losing a few pounds could be a great achievement to aim for at first. Running a marathon might be the dream, but just running 5k could be achievement enough for now. This helps you to stay motivated as it feels amazing to hit the smaller targets along the way. Plus, every goal you smash is s step towards that end target and where you truly want to be.
Ensure you give yourself the best possible chance
Right now you may have all the best intentions to take on those resolutions you have set yourself, but you must also give yourself the best possible chance in which to achieve them. It might be the right running shoes to ensure you stay free from injury as you train, it might be reversible basketball uniforms to keep you cool while taking exercising or practicing those team sports. It might even be the right training and college courses that you do in an evening to ensure that promotion at work or career change is within reach. Arming yourself with the tools and the knowledge can often be the key ingredient to helping you on your way to achieving those new year resolutions you set yourself.
Keep a positive attitude
Finally, your attitude and how you think can play a vital part when it comes to implementing the actions necessary for your resolutions to become a reality. You need to keep positive, have the right approach and the stamina to succeed. Most of the time, these resolutions are a long journey, so keeping a positive thought process could be the key to keeping you motivated and wanting to do it.
I hope these tips help you keep on track with your resolutions that you have set.
