Today I am sharing 5 TIPS with you, to help you turn your New Year Resolution into Achievable Results.
Break it down to monthly goals.
Where do you want to be in December 2022? Decide what do you want to achieve every month and take it one step at a time. For example:
January – Goal 1: Drink 2L of water
February – Carry on with Goal 1 and add Goal 2: Prioritise lean protein with every meal
Etc, etc – make every month specific
Break it down to weekly goals.
Every month has 4 – 5 weeks.
January W1 – Start a day with a glass of water
January W2 – Finish the day with the glass of water
January W3 – Drink a glass of water before every meal
January W4 – Stay consistent with all the weekly goals from January
Break it down to daily habits.
Mon – Have a glass of water first thing in the morning before my coffee
Tue – Repeat
Wed – Repeat
Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun – REPEAT
The key to creating healthy habits is repetition and consistency. If you do it every day for a month you will create a habit that will help you change your lifestyle.
Be consistent and be patient.
How many times do you need to remind your children to brush their teeth every morning and evening? Exactly. That is exactly how consistent and patient you need to be if you are changing your habits.
Be accountable for your actions.
This is very important. You need to make sure you have accountability for the goals your set yourself. Weekly check ins my 1:1 programme are exactly for this. I check in with my clients how did they get on with their habit, to ensure they achieved it and if there were any barriers, we aim to overcome them and plan for them.
Don’t try to be perfect and go ALL IN. You know it doesn’t work.
Take it one step at a time.
Be consistent and carry on even if you don’t want to as there will be a lot of days when you don’t feel like it. It’s those days that will make the biggest difference in your life.
Show up for yourself even if you don’t want.
So, what are your goals? Write them down, plan for them and go for it.
The only person that can make a difference in your life is YOU.
