You’ve laid out your New Years resolutions in perfect harmony. One or two might even be fitness-related. If you feel yourself ‘stuck’, here are five effective steps towards getting back on track that never fail…
Step 1 – Ask yourself what you want to accomplish, why that is, and how long do you (realistically) intend for it to take? Develop a strategy.
Step 2 – Ditch the performance and outcome-related goals for a process goal. This is something that we have greatest control over, for example, committing to 3 hours of moderate-intense activity ever week. Tip-you are going to need more (activity) for body transformation.
Step 3 – Do not expect to undo habits and form new ones within a fortnight. Instead, give yourself at least two weeks to establish a baseline before re-assessing and making any changes.
Step 4 – Find someone to hold you accountable. Without accountability, it is much easier to remain non-committal and much harder to make continuous change. Better yet-find someone who’s mindset is in line with your goal(s).
Step 5 – Discover what behaviors and commitments are absolutely necessary to achieve your goal(s) and then work to create those behaviors.
