I’m sure you’ve heard of that tired saying, right? What’s more annoying is you’ll see that posted on all sorts of social media with the dang hashtag of #newyearnewme. Ugh, makes me want to roll my eyes a few times.
So here’s the thing with New Year’s Resolutions, they don’t actually stick. Most people get excited about losing weight and working out for about the first two weeks of January. After that they’re back to their old habits.
Rather than telling the whole world you’re going to do this and that, why not just quietly do the things you’ve set out to do. Seriously, you don’t need an audience to hold you accountable, just do it.
So if you want to lose weight, start working out, meet someone new, great! Just act on those things, do you really need to keep uploading your “progress” photos to show your before-during-after working out? Perhaps the whole secret to this approach is to do things in moderation, or in other words baby steps. For example, you love drinking soda, why not cut that out from your diet. Instead of trying to run a marathon right away, start off by going on walks after work, every day. Drink more water, eat just half of your food per sitting. All these small gestures make a big impact in your over all goal.
