It’s a brand new year—the perfect time to make resolutions and set new goals. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, exercise more, eat healthier or take on another challenge, we have the tips to help you achieve those goals.
- Set a clear and realistic goal that is specific and measurable.
For example, your goal may be to lose 50 pounds in 10 months or to exercise four days a week for 30 minutes each day. Be consistent, take notes and monitor your progress.
- Don’t just think it—INK IT!
Writing down your goals makes them tangible. Use sticky notes and stick them to your car dashboard and your bathroom mirror, or send yourself a reminder every day on your smartphone. The more you see your goal, the more it will help you maintain focus.
- Connect with like-minded individuals for support and accountability.
You become the five people you hang with the most. Choose those companions wisely. If you want to eat healthier, join a local group that meets weekly or check into an online forum for meal ideas and food strategies.
- Schedule the time.
Add in the dates and times on your calendar (just as you would a business meeting) and make that appointment with yourself.
- Stay inspired.
Find what inspires you and revisit it often—whether it’s a speech, song or a simple quote. Inspiration is positive energy, and that positive energy can give you the strength to achieve any goal you desire.
