Anyway! Enough of my moaning, that's not what we're here for is it? The true aim of the post is to talk about staying motivated after the rash of New Year motivations. I'm not personally doing any resolutions this eyar, instead just keeping up my goals to be a bit healthier and a tad more active. In years past when I have set resolutions it's towards the end of the month that I find them starting to slip. So this year I want to help prevent others from doing the same.
- Remind yourself why you've chosen that resolution// if it's an ongoing process ie diet and exercise related a month isn't really time for a long term change. Are you only after a reprieve after the Christmas indulgence or is your arm for a bigger lifestyle change?
- Re-evaluate// It may be that now is the perfect time to rethink your resolution. Maybe your goal is trying to save up money, it could be a good time to review how your post Christmas finances are going (better than mine I hope!)
- Re-consider// I don't want to promote quitting but if you're not making the most of or enjoying your resolution is it really for you? For example if you're trying to get fitter, running in freezing cold temperatures may not be for you. It may be you need to rethink how you plan to achieve your goals. We all have different preferences and lets face it we're far more likely to stick with goals if the process is a tad more enjoyable.
- Research// If you're trying to eat healthier maybe it's time to have alook round for new recipes and ideas. In fact this may be where I can be most helpful! Goodyful* recently got in touch with me and offered to send me one of their new recipe boxes. They've also given me one extra that one of you lucky people can win!! I really like the brand, as it promotes healthy changes with their products. Promoting good food and diet, with a dash of moderation not restriction. The box is a great mix of products with fun and easy recipes to try!
