Why do we feel the need to set these extreme New Year's Resolutions, and then beat ourselves up when we fail to reach our unrealistic standards?
Resolutions like... lose 20 pounds in a month, quit sugar in 5 days, go the gym at 5 am every single day, eliminate all stress...
I mean, what?? We're human.
It's no wonder 80% of people give up on their goals by the second week. You read that right.
While this statistic may seem discouraging, remember this:
SETTING REALISTIC, HEALTHY GOALS CAN HELP YOU
STAY COMMITTED AND INSPIRED.
If "bite-sized" goals are best, where do you start? And how do you actually do the work while remaining interested?
One small goal. That's it. Just think on that.
Here are some examples:
try one new recipe per week
make one (non-sugar loaded) smoothie per day
try a new fitness video each week
practice meditation every Saturday morning
read a new book
drink one extra glass of water every day
declutter one room every week
take a 20 minute walk after dinner
write down something you're thankful for
read a book instead of watching tv before bed
Do any of these micro-habits strike a chord with you? Sure, if you look at the whole list as the goal, it's overwhelming. But broken down in manageable steps, it's not too much... as long as it's something YOU want to focus on.
Go for a goal you can count on, something small, achievable, and fun.
Here's a huge piece of advice to help you in this new year:
BE IN THE BUSINESS OF SURROUNDING YOURSELF
WITH GROWTH-MINDED PEOPLE.
