Generally, most New Year resolutions revolve around health in some way. The new year is a chance to get a fresh start and a clean slate to build better and healthier habits. Whether you want to eat healthier or exercise more, or even something else, the beginning of the year is always a great time to reassess your lifestyle and make some changes.
CORE Physical Therapy has put together these simple tips that can motivate you to stick with your New Year resolutions in 2019.
1. Stay SMART
The SMART method stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time Specific. It is a great strategy to employ for your health goals or any goal you may have. The idea is to set goals that are realistic, achievable and as specific as possible.
2. Start Small
Setting unrealistic goals can lead to frustration. Rather than thinking about losing 100 pounds, set a plan in motion to lose 5 pounds in the next month. Then, keep building on that. These “mini goals” will slowly but surely set you in motion to get you where you want to be without burning yourself out.
3. Have Fun
Staying motivated is key to sticking to any New Year resolutions. Look for fun ways to increase physical activity, try out new healthier recipes and reward yourself with each milestone you achieve. These are great ways to stay motivated and develop better habits over time.
The entire team at CORE Physical Therapy wishes everyone a Happy New Year and hopes that 2019 your healthiest year yet! If you need help or guidance on how to build a regimen you can follow, contact us or visit our blog for more helpful information.
