Three Positive Habits to Adopt in the New Year
Jan 13, 2015
With resolution season in full swing, many Americans are in the process of taking steps to meeting their health and fitness goals. To help you accomplish your New Year’s goals, the personal training experts at Fitness Together suggest adopting the following three positive habits – in addition to a healthy diet and regular exercise – into your daily routine.
Block Out Negativity
Internal and external negativity can be one of the biggest roadblocks to preventing you from accomplishing your personal and professional goals. To help make 2015 a more positive and enjoyable year, make it a point to practice positive self-talk every day. This can be as simple as waking up for the day, taking a deep breath and smiling as you think about all of the awesome potential the day has in store. It also can include celebrating all of the little successes you experience as you move toward living a more healthy and fit lifestyle.
To minimize the impact of external negativity, it can be a good time to evaluate whether the people in your life – friends, family, co-workers – are lifting you up mentally, rather than weighing you down with their negativity. If you find that you have some negative influencers in your life, then you may want to take steps to start phasing them out of your life so that you can put the majority of your efforts and focus in the New Year on living a healthier lifestyle both mentally and physically.
Try Something New
Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays is behind us, it can be really easy to fall back into the same habits that you’re comfortable with. But, if you really want to make changes to how you look and feel in the New Year, it can be beneficial to try new approaches, activities and workouts. If you’ve only taken group workout classes before, go out on a solo run/walk/swim/bike ride once a week. Or, if you’ve spent the majority of your time in the gym doing the same weight workout, but not seeing the results you want, it can be a good time to enlist the help of a personal trainer to help you get fit and reach your ultimate fitness potential.
Get Organized to Get Results
One of the best ways to stay on track to reaching your health and fitness goals is to organize your workouts and food choices so that they’re built into your regular daily schedule. If you take some time at the beginning of your week to plan healthy meals then when you’re busy mid-week and squeezed for time, you’ll still have healthy foods to grab on the go. And, if you actually schedule your workouts into your daily calendar then you’re more like to stick with your fitness plan even when your work day gets busy and family obligations are on the rise.
