How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions2020 is almost upon us and that usually means you get ready to make your New Year’s resolutions. Among the top resolutions are eating healthy, exercise more and lose weight. You have been here before and somehow those resolutions tend to not stick. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you make it happen in 2020.

Be Realistic About Your New Year’s Resolutions

The biggest mistake, when it comes to New Year’s resolutions, is not being realistic. Try to set small but achievable goals. Don’t try to lose 20 pounds, maybe start out with 3  or 5 pounds. That way, once you achieved a small goal you will be motivated enough to keep going. The same is true of exercising. Don’t make it your first goal to run a marathon, especially if you have not been running in years. Maybe start out with half a mile or a mile. You will get stronger as you go along and stay motivated. Also, starting out slow will lower your risk of injuring yourself. If you have had a rather poor diet, don’t make it your goal to only eat salad. Maybe just start adding more and more vegetables to your meals. Unrealistic goal will make you give up sooner.

Another good idea is to make a plan on how to get to your end goal. Maybe start out walking for an hour each day before you start running. Make it a point to go at least every other day. Making a plan and sticking to it is almost a guaranteed way to achieve the goals you set with your New Year’s resolutions or even get further than you thought. Once you are motivated and start seeing positive results, it will be so much easier to keep going. Give it a try this year and see how far your New Year’s resolutions will get you in 2020.
