Got Resolutions? How to Accomplish this Year!

2017 is here!!! It brings the well-known New Year’s Resolutions.

The New Year seems like the perfect time to start with a clean slate.

According to research, almost fifty percent of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions. One of the top resolutions for most is to “Lose Weight.” It’s exciting to know that most people’s ideal is to be in shape and get healthier.

However, did you know that the life expectancy of most people’s resolutions is about a month. By the end of January, 1 in 3 people have already ditched their resolution, and only 8% of those resolutioners achieve their goal, according research published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.

Most people get caught up in the same cycle year after year!

Why is it so hard to stick with those New Year’s Resolutions?

There are many reasons why these yearly determinations are hard to achieve.

  • For one, the resolutions themselves are extremely vague. For instance, losing weight is not precise or trackable. Besides, most times the resolution is not tied to something meaningful, to something that can really make a difference. Just wanting to lose weight seems too superficial and insignificant in the big picture.

Follow these steps to be successful at accomplishing your New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Make your goal concrete and measurable. Instead of wanting to “lose weight,” plan to lose 10 lbs in the next 3 months.

Remember, You do Not have to wait for the New Year to make Changes

If you are not happy with your current state, Start implementing changes right away. The time is NOW. Stop postponing your Goals!!!

To a Fitter Healthier You,
