Making any new goals or habits for wellness? If so, you are not alone! However, life can get in the way, and even with the best intentions, it can be difficult to stick to your goals when things get busy.
The great news is that there are some tips and tricks you can implement to stick to this goal throughout the year without putting in a ton of effort. These tips even work for those who have to work 9-5 jobs, take care of a family, and just feel like they could never have time to exercise.
Here’s to setting a goal and sticking to it! Let’s jump right in.
#1 Wake up 10 Minutes Earlier: You would be surprised at what waking up just ten minutes earlier each day can do for your daily routine. By getting up ten minutes earlier, you can squeeze in a quick stretch or a brisk walk. This will also set the tone for a healthy and successful day.
#2 Get Others Involved: If you have set a New Year’s goal to be more active this year, why not get the whole family involved? If you feel guilty about spending an hour at the gym after work because it takes you away from family time, get them involved and go for a family walk!
#3 Walk & Talk: Have a business meeting? Why not have a walking meeting. Your meeting may even be more successful because walking and getting outside can get your creative juices flowing. It is also always nice to take a break from the office and get outside.
#4 Do a Home Workout: Staying active doesn’t mean you have to pay for an expensive gym membership. There are thousands of free online workout programs, and also programs you can pay a small fee for. Try an online program that you like, and test out a couple to find one that you actually look forward to doing. Home workouts are so great because you can do them whenever you have time in the comfort of your own home, and often times they are free!
If staying active is one of your goals for this year, try some of these tips. Be realistic, and take pride in the small accomplishments you make. Set small goals like exercising three days a week to start, and work your way up from there. Remember that small changes make lasting results when you stick to them!
