New Year’s Fitness Resolutions: Realistic Goals Can Equal Real Results
- Write down your resolution or share it with a friend. “Studies show if you have a support system or share your goal with someone, you’re more apt to stick with your plan and be motivated”
- Reward yourself. “As you reach small milestones along the way, give yourself a fitness-related reward. For example if your goal is to lose 75 pounds, celebrate that first five or ten pounds you lose with a new pair of sneakers, a fitness DVD or maybe a manicure.
- Start small. “It can be as little as a 15 minute walk every day to begin. The most important thing is just to get started.”
It is a sad irony that those who write off New Year’s resolutions because so many fail reinforces the passive approach to life that causes so many resolutions–and so many other dreams–to fail. The solution to failed New Year’s resolutions is not to abandon the practice, but to supplement it with a broader resolution–a commitment to a goal-directed life.
This New Year’s, resolve to think about how to make your life better, not just once a year, but everyday. Resolve to set goals, not just in one or two aspects of life, but in every important aspect and in your life as a whole. Resolve to pursue the goals that will make you successful and happy, not as the exception in a life of passivity, but as the rule that becomes second-nature.
If you do this, you will be resolving to do the most important thing of all: to take your happiness seriously.
