New Years Resolutions

It’s that time of year again when people start to think about making New Years resolutions. It may be to lose weight, exercise more, walk the dog more, and so on and so forth.

Or perhaps you don’t make resolutions because they never seem to work out anyway. Why is that? Have you ever stopped to think why so many people don’t stick to their New Years resolutions?

According to certain studies between 88% and 92% of people fail to stick to their New Years resolutions.

Over the next few blogs I will look at why this is and ways of how you can make your resolutions more achievable.

There may be a number of reasons why someone doesn’t stick to their resolution; it seemed too hard, they got overwhelmed so they quit, they didn’t see the results quick enough, or it didn’t mean enough to them to see it through and so they gave up.

Many people see a New Years resolution as a chance to change something they don’t like in their life. But very often they take an all or nothing approach. This can often be too overwhelming; change is difficult and must be achieved incrementally overtime so break it down into smaller pieces and spread it out over the course of the year.

You didn’t get to where you are today as a result of what happened in the last 30 days. It is as a result of your actions over many years.

We live in a society where we are constantly bombarded with quick fixes and fast results but these only lead to short term results. To really instill change in our lives we have to completely reset the system.

I will explore this further in my next blog. If you have any questions about making changes in your life particularly in relation to diet, exercise and lifestyle choices Peter is a certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach and is more than willing to help.
