Proverbially Speaking, We’re Breaking New Ground This Year!
It’s the New Year.
Although we recognize that New Year’s Day is just another day, we cannot help treating each new year as if we’re turning over a new leaf. Every January 1st feels like a new beginning and we anticipate a drastic change of pace.
And what better way to commemorate new beginnings than a handful of New Year’s Resolutions, right? Well, don’t be too eager to jump on that bandwagon.
Studies show that while over 40% of people make New Year’s Resolutions, more than 8 out 10 people actually end up throwing in the towel by the end of January. And most of those people who are still sticking to their guns eventually fall by the wayside by the end of the year.
So, are we telling you to drop everything and hit the sack because your fitness resolutions are doomed to fail anyway?
Au contraire, my friend!
We are here to put under a microscope this notion that all New Year’s Resolutions fail. We want to prove to you that you can look and feel like a million bucks by the end of 2018 (and also show you how Fitwell can help you get your head in the game 😉)!
So sit tight and let’s get down to business!
According to several studies done on people with New Year’s Resolutions, at the helm of our defeat is a tendency to bite off more than we can chew. Goals are the bee’s knees! In fact, studies show that people who write down specific goals for themselves are 10 times more likely to pull their socks up and achieve them. But if you set out to boil the ocean, you will soon want to tear your hair out.
Don’t set yourself up to fail. Instead, take your resolutions for a test drive and if you feel overwhelmed, dial it down. Take the time to pick the right resolutions, because right resolutions turn into habits. And don’t forget to keep your chin up!
Another obstacle to achieving what you want is an unwillingness to take things one day at a time. Many people expect to see progress immediately and get discouraged if they don’t experience a miracle. Before long, they hang up their boots.
Instead of giving up, accept that progress takes time. Whether you signed up for a gym membership, paid for a diet plan, or simply made yourself a promise, you have to work every day for what you want to achieve. Because when the going gets tough, the tough get going! Don’t obsess over the distant future; you will get discouraged. Do keep your eyes on the prize but don’t take to your heels just because you don’t see immediate results.
Finally, don’t beat yourself up. Many people get caught in the vicious cycle of attempted resolutions and failed goals. You need to accept that the ball’s in your court, and you need to take the bull by the horns. If you find yourself faltering, recognize that it’s not the end of the world. Once you’ve started, you can never be back at square one. Temporary lapses are all right, as long as you brush it off and get back in the game.
We won’t lie, you’ve got your work cut out for you. But fitness is no rocket science either! All you need is determination and a dependable guide who will teach you the ropes, and this year’s resolutions will be a whole new ball game.
