I love Christmas time so much and definitely put a lot of time into preparing for and celebrating the holidays. The new year is the perfect time to get back on track and start refocusing on your goals. Here are some of my favorite ways:
1. Make a list of your goals for the next 6 months. I’m not into New Years resolutions— I think it’s much more effective to make a list of goals you want to accomplish over the next 6 months and focus on those. I also find making a visualization board helps as well as making a list of specific things you can do to to reach your goals.
2. Incorporate something healthy into your diet. Expecting to stick to a full diet makeover for a whole year can be a little intimidating. I find vowing to change one habit and sticking to it can make a bigger impact. For example, I started drinking a green smoothie every morning several months ago, and it’s been the best diet decision I’ve ever made!
3. Pick a workout you love. I’d rather decide to do more yoga or Pilates than be like “I’m gonna do P90X!” deep down knowing I’m going to hate it and have a hard time sticking to it. You don’t have to have the same workout style everyone else does!
4. Reward yourself. Winter after the holidays can be kind of a downer, so don’t forget to make a bucket list of fun things you want to do or try and reward yourself by doing one every time you reach a goal or finish a boring chore like turning in all your tax junk ahead of time.
