We hope you had the best festive season, we had some time off to eat our body weight in food and we can tell you it was incredibly worth it.
As we are now approaching the second week of January we are going to give you some advice on how to keep those resolutions (even if you have broken some already…)
- If you have set the bar incredibly high, it probably wasn’t going to work out in the first place. Sometimes resolutions can turn into rewriting your entire personality and that’s not what they should be. So take a look at your list and drop the dead weight – make your goals as realistic as possible and you will probably know by now the ones that you need to cross out.
- They always say to start a healthy diet you should begin slowly by cutting something new out each week. We suggest you tackle one thing at a time. If your list is to 1. Get to the gym 2. Cook healthier meals 3. Be more organised than why not try one thing each week and hopefully they will all harmoniously coincide once you have spent some dedicated time on each resolution individually.
- Just do it. It’s so easy to think of excuses and reasons as to why we should indulge ourselves, however, sometimes it’s time to just do it. There may be 10 reasons why not, but there is one big reason why you set this specific goal as your resolution to begin with and that should outweigh everything else.
- That being said, you should listen to your body and your mind. If you have had a long day at work, you have worked out all week and you have managed to squeeze in the things you wanted to get done, there is nothing wrong with treating yourself. Have that pizza, have a glass of wine and the best part is – don’t feel guilty about it.
- Track your resolutions. Write updates on how you’re progressing to keep yourself focused. Write down the reasons why you are working towards that specific goal and think about the joy it will bring you to succeed, you can do anything you put your mind to.
We know it can be easier said than done, but this is the time to be realistic with yourself and create achievable goals that you can reach. It’s all about balance, no one is the perfect person!
