Oh hey there.
We see you.
We know your dirty secret. It's January 18 and almost every single one of those resolutions has fallen by the wayside. Sure, you started out strong:
We've been there...minus the boat.
Have no fear, we have four ways for you to hit the RESET button and start fresh.
1. Write Down Realistic Goals: Approaching goals with intention is the first step to following through. Grab a sheet of paper and physically write down three goals you want to accomplish this year. A study done by Gail Matthews at Dominican University found that those who wrote down their goals accomplished significantly more than those who did not.
2. Mindfulness: Meditation is no longer just for that hippie Aunt who insists on lighting incense next to her crystal collection while listening whale sounds. Taking even 10 minutes out of your day to sit quietly and unwind has scientifically been proven to reduce anxiety and stress while increasing cognition. Check out Headspace, an app designed for newbies looking to start a routine.
3. Accountabilibuddy: You are more likely to get up and workout if you are meeting someone. You are more likely to eat healthier if you share your goals with someone. #facts
4. Optimize Your Time: Winter can be brutal. Shorter days and longer nights minimize the time you can be out and about accomplishing your resolutions. May we suggest a pair of Night Runner 270s to optimize those darker hours? *Hint Hint*
We believe in you. You got this! (Insert all motivational quotes here).
