Going to the gym every day is a lofty goal. It may be easier to say, I’m going to add more activity into every day. Take the stairs, park in the most distant parking lot space, walk through the mall or your favorite store. And maybe add going to the gym a day a week, then a few days. The most important thing is to do the activity that you love. That is what is going to make you achieve your goal.
Going Meat Free
If becoming a vegetarian is your goal for the new year, try going meat-free a day a week, like observing Meatless Monday. Studies have shown periodic behavior change can lead to continuous positive health habits. Once you’ve achieved Meatless Monday add another day or the weekend. Slowly but surely, you’ll achieve your goal.
Running a Marathon
Running 26.2 miles is not an easy fete. Set your goal for a smaller race, like a 5 K, and then get good at that distance then add bigger races like a half marathon. Eventually you will be at your marathon goal. There are also great apps and websites dedicated to helping people achieve this goal like, https://howtorunamarathon.net/
Cleaning Out The Closets or Cupboards
Cutting down on clutter is a goal on everyone’s list unless you are Marie Konda, the organization expert. Set the goal of tackling either a closet, cupboard or a room every week. Breaking tasks down into smaller chunks will make everything seem doable and not so overwhelming. Invest in a few laundry baskets to help with these efforts.
Giving up Caffeine or Sugar
Some people manage going cold turkey with caffeine or sugar, but what might be easier is to lessen the amount you are eating. With caffeine, allow yourself a caffeinated beverage in the morning and cut out caffeine in the afternoon. Then switch your morning caffeine to decaf a few days a week until you are caffeine-free. The same with sugar. Allow yourself a sugary treat a few days a week and then replace it with healthy snacks or fruit. Then eliminate sugary treats altogether.
By breaking things down into more manageable, easier to achieve goals you can make next year your most super year ever.
