Every year’s end we reflect back on ourselves and question whether or not we are where we want to be. Some of us are, some of us are not.
Those of us who are not tend to start setting goals for the new year ahead. “New year, new me” is the phrase I tend to hear often.
I want to challenge everyone reading this to change your mindset, dig deep into what it is you are really wanting for yourself when it comes to health. And instead of going all out come the first of the year, make a consistent plan that’s sustainable year after year.
So instead of a new you, create a you who keeps getting better and better and better.
Ask yourself what new goals you need to commit to, or where are you now but find yourself heading. Do you need to make better food choices? Cut things back in your daily diet such as too much caffeine or sugar? Do you need to create a workout routine, hitting classes, getting outside to hike more or hiring a personal trainer?
I think the best way to make new habits to better yourself isn’t always taking things out, but adding good habits in to eventually replace the bad ones.
So this year, moving forward means to change your mindset around your goals and then get after them one day at time with patience and grace.
Happy New Year!
