3 Easy Ways To Stick To Your New Year’s Resolution

Break it down

If your resolution is long-term, try breaking it down into manageable chunks. This couldn’t be more pertinent than if your resolution is to lose a bit of puppy fat.

It’s really not healthy to rapidly strip out nutritious foods, and if you do have to quickly lose weight then following a supervised low-calorie diet plan is essential.

Instead, ease yourself into your new healthy lifestyle, and be mindful that this is something that will benefit you in the long-term. Trust us, it will be tough at first, but after the first few months you’ll be more than pleased with the results!

Plan it properly

Nothing good comes from a lack of planning, that’s our motto at least! If your resolution is well thought out it should be easy to manage once you get started, and won’t feel like such a chore to withstand.

If you’re looking to exercise more this year, create your own workout schedule so you’re not putting too much strain on certain body parts. Schedule in a legs day on Monday and an arms and abs day on Tuesday, for instance, to let your body get more accustomed to a healthier way of living.

Keep notes of your progress

Most people are encouraged by actions rather than just words, so keeping track of your progress is incredibly motivating for sticking with your resolutions.

If your resolution is to eat more healthily, keep track of all the healthy things you’ve eaten that day, noting how it made you feel and why it’s better than eating unhealthy alternatives. Then, if you’re ever in doubt, revisit your notes and it will help you better understand why you made your resolution in the first place!
