3 Tips to Crushing your Goals in 2021

January is here! The confetti has fallen, the clock struck midnight, and you have 12 months of promise ahead. New Year’s resolutions mark a fresh chance to start anew – get healthy, learn yoga, start meditating, eat more vegetables, eat less sugar, etc. This year try creating a culture of positive change to last the entire year, and well beyond. Here are some ways to create and maintain success to live out your best year yet!

Be specific.

If you want to eat healthier, you need to think and plan by breaking it down. “I want to eat one piece of fruit everyday as dessert”. “I want to eat a vegetable every night with dinner.’” Consider recording your progress in a log so that you can hold yourself accountable.

Be realistic.

Creating goals will fuel success and keep you on track. If you are constantly over-reaching or not being honest with yourself about the type of goals that may work best for you, you’ll miss the mark. Set goals that work for your own day to day.

Be positive.

The world can be negative. Cheer yourself on, even in small achievements. Walk into the gym knowing that 30 minutes there will lift your mood. Look for an activity you enjoy! Join a fun class or a league, meet others having fun, and feed off their positive energy.

It’s easy to get pumped about goal setting and forget about actual achievement in the hustle and bustle. Once you have determined your goal, make a plan and post your plan in plain sight. Hang it on your mirror, refrigerator, or locker. The visual reminder should include your goal, why you chose it, and why quitting on yourself is not an option.

Good luck to good health!
