I'm going to get healthy this year. Seriously! That's my resolution. Or at least that's one of them. Here's the plan.
- Spend less time on my phone.
- Save money.
- Eat better.
- Exercise more... even exercising a little would be more than what I currently do!
At the dawn of a new year many of us set a few expectations for the next 12 months. But as we get further into January, we tend to forget about the goals we just set. Staying on course requires discipline and hard work.
Set a few priorities to determine which of your goals require a time commitment. If it takes extra time, it may not happen. Start small but start right away. If you plan to start a diet next week, it certainly won't happen! Lifestyle changes are hard so make an immediate change, even if it's small. Be aware of obstacles. If you plan to become a vegetarian, you might have to plan ahead. Recognizing these hurdles ahead of time will help you overcome them.
Being specific in choosing a new year's resolution is important. It helps when you're making a plan to achieve your goals. Create a new daily or weekly schedule that allows time for exercise or reading a book. And don't be afraid to ask for help. A loved one may have quit smoking or lost weight and they would provide some great insight for you.
Good luck to you! And wish me luck... I'm going to need it!
