How To Stick To Your New Years Resolutions
Mid-January is typically when most people start to throw in the towel and give up on their New Years resolutions of exercising more and sticking to a healthier lifestyle – but you don’t have to be one of them!
The hardest part of exercise is getting started and creating a routine that is beneficial for you and interesting enough to stick to can be daunting, despite your motivation – after all it is said that a habit can take roughly 66 days to form and can be broken almost instantly. However, there are many steps you can take to help you with your new routine, stick to your New Year resolutions and achieve the physique that you have always dreamed of.
Develop a fitness plan that fits your lifestyle
Everyone is different in terms of experience, ability and daily schedules, therefore you can’t always follow the exercise trends that are popular at the time. Developing workouts and setting goals tailored to you is an important part of staying motivated to sticking to your routine. You need to feel comfortable and be realistic so motivation doesn’t wane if you’re unable to achieve your goals, whether they may be weight or measurement loss, frequency and duration of sessions and/or new exercises.
Keep it simple and stick to the classics
Start off aiming to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, whether this is a walk, a jog, resistance or body weight exercises, just get your body moving. Start of quick and simple and work your way up as your confidence and ability grows.
While it’s good to know your body’s limitations, it is important to challenge yourself from time to time to ensure growth in not only your strength and fitness but also in your confidence. Small changes to your workout can make a world of difference if you find yourself getting sick of the same regime you started with. Try running up that hill you normally avoid next time, start your set of push up on your toes and drop to your knees when you can’t anymore, challenge yourself with a light weight session instead of jumping on your favourite treadmill. Make sure you’re comfortable and don’t do anything that might strain you beyond your ability.
If you’re struggling to motivate yourself to get moving a good way to make exercise more enjoyable is to grab a friend or two and make a day out of it. Group workouts provide a fun and supportive atmosphere that can change your attitude towards exercise. Gym classes such as zumba, boxing or HIIT circuits are fast and efficient ways to burn fat. However, if you want to slow the pace down and just enjoy your day a coastal walk is the perfect option to strengthen both your bond, as well as your physique.
