Don’t be another statistic

 

So here’s a few staggering numbers for you – a combined total of 68% of people’s new year’s resolutions revolve around some form of getting fitter or dropping some unwanted pounds. 68%! That’s a huge amount of people wanting to get fit and lose weight.  But of this total how many people reach where they want to be and hit their end goal, as expected it is a rather low number. Only 8% of people complete or stick to their new year’s resolution. So what’s my point?

Only 8% of people that is a minuscule amount, how can we make that number higher, how can you make sure that this year is the year you reach your goal? So a few tips to help you on your way…

 

Positivity

Surround yourself with positive and like minded people and achieve your goals in a positive setting. People are more likely to give up on a goal or achievement if they have negative people or thoughts surrounding them. Positivity encourages you to keep going and reach where you want to be.

 

Goal Setting

So no doubt your goal is going to be about doing something and sticking to it for the whole year (or rest of time), and to be honest that is a long long long time! To ensure that you stick to your resolution break your year down into smaller more manageable chunk. For example don’t set your target for a whole year away, set a goal for 2,3,6,10 and 12 months, this keeps your accountable more motivated and ultimately more likely to succeed.

 

Find a buddy

What’s better than someone fulfilling their goals? 2 People reaching their goals! So pick a friend or someone else in your gym with similar goals and work together, keep each other motivated and keep each other accountable, success is just around the corner.

 

Keep a diary

Writing a diary of everything you eat and drink as well as how you train and what you lifted may seem tedious at first, but believe me knowing you have write down that chocolate bar you’re about to eat makes it a whole lot less desirable, as well as not opting for those lighter weights.

 

So here are a few tips that can help you stick to those new year’s resolutions before you start to find it tricky! Good luck and Happy New Year!
