So we are a week into the new year… How are you doing with your resolutions??
A recent article in the LA Times talks about how making small changes make bigger changes. If you set out this year to work out 5 days a week and not allowing any junk food, there is a high probability you will let yourself down and give up in a couple of months.
Start by ramping up your exercise slowly – whether this means adding some exercise in to your life three days a week, or adding 5 minutes to your current routines, this is something you could succeed at.
The same is true for your nutrition. Add a serving of vegetables per week. The article suggests making changes that can be measured so you know how to take it up to the next step when you succeed. Keep track of these changes, and you’re more likely to stick with it!
You will need to think, and plan. Want to start exercising? Make sure your clothes are set out before you go to bed. Want to eat more home-cooked meals? Have a grocery list, a menu and a date to go shopping. Goals should be attainable — and pragmatic. "If you're not a morning person," Jessica Matthews says, "don't schedule exercise for 6 a.m."
Keep up the hard work J
