We’ve all done it. It’s the new year, and we create particular resolutions. Then we give up in a month. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict resolve to do or not do something. As a consequence, they’re rigid and might be daunting.

Goals are an objective of your ambition, an aim or a favorable effect. They sound less formidable—and more doable.

Suppose that you come into 2020 with the mind-set of choosing achievable goals, as opposed to choosing unattainable resolutions? Rethinking your thinking process and being nicer to yourself is the first step toward growth.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might incorporate:

  • Professional—receiving a bigger salary at work.
  • Health—starting a strength training schedule.
  • Personal—reading more books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you keep determined to achieving them?

SMART goals inspire you to reach milestones and celebrate success during your journey.

How Do You Write a SMART Goal?

SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They’re specific but not intimidating.

Personal SMART goals could include:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep nightly this week.
  2. Eat greens at every meal this week.
  3. Go for walks after dinner each day this week.

Setting SMART goals will stop you from feeling overpowered by what you want to do.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Loved One

Be sure to tell someone about your goals! Having an accountability partner can help you in keeping on track during the process.
