The new year is rapidly approaching us, and seeing as we all have the same idea about making a resolution for the January period that’s coming, it’s time to figure out whether or not you’re going to be healthier in the new year. Are you going to commit to something that’ll make you a better person? Will you be able to carry on with your efforts, despite a lack of instant results that turn so many of us away? Well, let’s work it out with the pointers below!
Will You Stay on Fitness Target?
It’s a classically difficult new year’s resolution, and quite a few people with the best interests in their hearts fail it year by year. The whole thing about sticking to a fitness routine is seeing results as soon as possible; new year, new you, right? But having that mindset before you try to commit is what lets you down, and makes sure you can’t stick to the routine you really fancy taking a shot at.
Before you get started, it’s good to work out how long it’ll take for you to start seeing results, based on the diet you want to try and the workout routine you’ve got in mind, as well as how often you’ll be working out.
If you can come up with a ballpark figure of a schedule, you’ll be in a much better position to commit to your resolution – you’ll have a sense of how long things will take, and how good you’ll feel keeping pace, and you’ll be a lot more motivated!
Will You Prioritize Your Mental Health?
Mental health is something that will always bother you if you ignore it; you need to be able to find peace with yourself, and do things that keep you healthy and happy on a long term basis. And if you’re someone who doesn’t sleep very well, or has the feeling to check into a drug rehab, it might be worth it to consider making that resolution for the new year.
After all, the better you feel upstairs, the better you feel downstairs! If your mind is clear, and you feel like you can think and act in a rational, productive manner, your whole life can change. Of course, once again, this takes time and a lot of energy to keep up with, but it’s definitely something to think about before you commit to anything else.
A healthy new year very much includes your mental health, and you might just want to start doing things for yourself you’ve never thought about before: some self care!
So, a healthy new year might be on its way – will you be able to follow along with it? The more research you do now, and the pacing you set yourself in the moment, the better your results will be on the other side of the calendar.
