Checking in on your New Year’s Resolutions.
Tomorrow marks the end of January and we want to take a moment to check in with all you PGX’ers and see how your New Year’s Resolutions are coming along.
If you’ve found yourself falling behind, don’t panic! We have some tips on how you can get back on track.
3 Tips to Help Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions Alive:
- Be specific – Setting goals is a great start but broad, general resolutions, such as “get healthy,” most likely won’t get you very far. Try to be specific with your goals, such as “I will eat one piece of fruit with breakfast and lunch, cut out my afternoon latte and go to the gym every day after work.”
- Ease your way into it – Trying to quite bad habits and pick up good ones cold turkey will only set you up for failure. Try giving up your vices gradually. For example, if you want to cut down on your daily two trips to Starbucks, instead of attempting to not go at all, try cutting your trips down by half for one month. Then the next month, cut it down even further, etc.
- Share you goals – Tell your friends and family about the goals you’ve made and ask them to help keep you accountable. Better yet, pick a resolution buddy and make your goals together. It’s always easier to achieve your goals with support!
