We’ve all gone through it. It’s a new start, and we make personal resolutions. Then we quit in a month. Why does this take place?

1. Make Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a firm plan to do or not do something. Consequently, they’re rigid and may be intimidating.

Goals are an objective of your ambition, a plan or a favorable outcome. They seem less formidable—and more attainable.

Suppose that you go into 2020 with the mind-set of making attainable goals, instead of setting intimidating resolutions? Reexamining how you think about things and being nicer to yourself is a start toward growth.

2. Choose SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals this year could incorporate:

  • Professional—obtaining a promotion at your job.
  • Health—having a strength training workout.
  • Personal—reading more books.

Now that you’ve created your goals, how do you remain committed to achieving them?

SMART goals inspire you to achieve targets and celebrate accomplishments during your journey.

How Do You Come Up With a SMART Goal?

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

Individual SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to bed every night this week.
  2. Consume greens at all meals this week.
  3. Take a walk after supper daily this week.

Having SMART goals will help you avoid becoming overwhelmed by what you want to reach.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

Be sure to tell someone about your goals! Keeping an accountability partner can aid you in staying motivated during the process.
