Many people cringe at the thought or sound of New Year’s Resolutions. Over the years its importance has diminished and has become more of a New Year’s (Eve or Day) conversation starter than anything. A quick search online will reveal the same old steps for sticking with your New Year’s Resolutions but when was the last time you came across the “Easiest Fitness Resolutions”? Before you lose another year of committing to living healthier, try these Resolutions!
Track your Exercise and Nutrition for 1 Week
Tracking your results can sometimes be tedious if you are not accustomed to it. Make a goal to track all your food and exercise decisions for at least the first week of every month. You can pick which week you want to track, but try to stay consistent with the same week throughout the rest of the year. If you decide to track your fitness for the first week of January, make sure you log your progress for the first week of February, March, April and so on… Next year aim for tracking 2 weeks out of each month.
Make Fitness more “F.U.N.”
There are plenty of ways to do this. You can start by visiting your nearest gym or recreation facility and playing sports at least once a week. Invite your friends or loved ones to join you in physical activity or create challenges that will help you stay competitive. Typically anything that involves more than one person is considered to be fun. Hikes are another good example, hike to your favorite site and camp out for the night. Plan a trip to the beach, play some volleyball and go swimming.
Lessen at least 1 Bad Habit
Most people don’t realize that bad habits alone can determine whether or not you are healthy. If you smoke cigarettes, try smoking at least 2 less on a daily basis. If you drink alcoholic beverages, try to drink maybe 1 or 2 less than you do on a weekly basis. If you don’t drink enough water, try to drink at least 2 more glasses of water on a daily basis.
These 3 Fitness Resolutions are thought to be the easiest because they are not difficult to stick with and have been yielding the best results for some time. If you have commitment issues then try to capitalize on just one of these resolutions, if not, then there’s no reason you can’t get the best benefits from dedicating yourself to all three. Are you ready to actually make a change?
