Here are 10 tips for the New Year to give you a better chance of the changes you may want to make in your life.
Forget starting the year with a DIET. Instead start the year by eating a little cleaner or having smaller portion sizes and just change one thing about your eating habits every week. This will last longer than any diet you will go on
Don’t go nuts in the gym! Try not to do your year’s sessions in the first month. Start with 2 sessions a week and build up over time to 3 or 4 sessions a week. This way you won’t mentally or physically burn out. Make sure to stick to your plan of going to the gym this year.
Have GOALS. Don’t attempt new year’s resolutions because you will forget them by the end of January. Instead have goals and execute them throughout the year. Goals are planned and not just hopeful thinking/acting which is what new year’s resolutions usually end up becoming.
Have a plan. Plan your goals using the SMART objectives, this will help you reach your intended goals.
Be more thankful and start the day with writing in a gratitude log. Just write down the things you are grateful for, it will help you start your day in a more positive way.
Try and spend more time outdoors. As a nation we lack time in the sun or outdoors in general. This is a great way to give your mind and body a break of the daily chores of life, it will refresh you and make you more productive.
Get out of your comfort zone. This is usually what holds people back from achieving their goals. Do things you’ve not done before, CHALLENGE YOURSELF!
Dedicate some time to friends and family, its something we all neglect at times. As another year passes we all get older and tend to grow apart, lets get older together and make some new memories.
Social media is a great creation but let's spend a little less time on it. It's with us everywhere we go, lets do a little bit more of the above.
Learn something new - it's something we do less and less as we get older. Take a class in an interest you may have or buy some books on it and enjoy the learning process. Imagine if you did this with one subject every year, what you would know in 10 years?
