Resolve to Keep Your Resolutions: Here’s How
One third of Americans will break their New Year’s Resolutions by the end of January. When the holiday high wears off, it can be hard to stick to puritanical resolutions when that double mocha with extra whipped cream becomes us in from the cold.
Here are some tips to help you stay on track during winter’s harshest months:
Break It Down – Take your big goal and turn it into mini goals. Do you want to run your first 5K this year? Try resolving to run three times per week to train for the race.
Don’t Go At It Alone – Find someone with a similar goal and then nag each other to death. Kidding.You don’t have to go that far, but when you connect with someone who is doing something similar, you can encourage and support each other. Find people from around the world to motivate you at DailyBurn
Make a Power Playlist – Rocky had Eye of the Tiger. Top Gun had Danger Zone. What songs make you sing along when you are out on the town or alone in your car? Take all of these songs and make a playlist to listen to when you workout. Go ahead and put the Backstreet Boys on there. No one has to know.
Good luck and cheers to a happy and healthy 2011.
