We’re all making new promises to ourselves with the approaching of each New Year. Unfortunately, most of us tend to ditch those promises before January even come to its end. Studies shows that the main reason for us to quit those self-commitments too early is that we tend to oblige ourselves to huge changes too fast. Therefore, making simple promises can actually lead us to living up to our promises. Here are some ideas for promises you can make to yourselves this New Year and actually live up to it.
Embrace a Healthy Lifestyle
Embracing a healthy lifestyle is what many of us would like to commit themselves to. But, as soon as we start it seems as an impossible mission to achieve. Therefore, “breaking” this promise into several small promises can help us achieve our greatest wish. Promise to eat better. Promise to work out more often. Promise yourself to lessen the frequency of submitting to your bad habits. Plan a scheduled “step-by-step” healthy lifestyle strategy. In time you’ll see it is much easier to follow.
Changing Your Diet
When we commit ourselves to quit with all the unhealthy foods – it’s usually doomed to failure. Who can stop consuming all their favorite foods at once? Should they’re exists, that person deserves a medal. Most of us need more time to complete such a change. Therefore, try to commit to changing your diet day by day. Each day add another healthy ingredient and exclude an unhealthy one. Within few months you could too lead a healthy and balanced diet.
Exercising More Often
Getting into shape doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and effort to build endurance and to strengthen those muscles. So committing oneself to be in a better shape also must start with a detailed plan. This plan should contain different levels of workouts, while the difficulty is rising from one workout to the next. You wouldn’t believe how big of a difference one month of such plan can do to both your body and soul.
Even if it seems hard, you could also embrace a healthy lifestyle. It’s all depends in the way you plan it and commit yourself to it. At the bottom line, the best thing about it is that achieving it will lead you to be happier and healthier. So make sure you plan it right and choose your promises for this New Year carefully.
