Make a cue-based plan
Note: Make sure to plot when and where you'll work on your New Year's resolution so it jogs your memory when it's times to execute!
Suggestion: Instead of saying “I want to workout more” say, “I’ll workout 3 days a week, M/W/TH after work, I’ll join Lana on Zoom”
Consider a penalty clause
Note: Don’t punish yourself but have a healthy penalty set in place for when you miss the mark. You can share this with friends to help hold you accountable.
Suggestion: If you miss one of your 3 weekly workouts, you must choose another day to “make-up” the missed workout.
Make it fun
Note: Again, your goal or resolution shouldn’t be a punishment. You should one, want to change and two desire the positive benefits of the change.
Suggestion: After writing out your goals. Write out or journal why it’s important for you to achieve your resolutions. Next, jot down a few positive changes this will have on your quality of life. Lastly, be patient & learn to enjoy the process.
Allow for emergencies
Note: Emergencies and life happen, if you completely fall of track don’t let that derail your total efforts.
Suggestion: Give yourself a little wiggle room here & there, also known as GRACE. Your goals should be tough but if an emergency happens it’s okay to deviate from the plan.
Get a little help from your friends
Note: Share your goals with a few people you trust. Ask them for their support and give them instructions on how they can support you.
Suggestion: Draft a note to share with your TRIBE, let them know your goals, share your whys, and then ask for their support and share how they can support you in safe & nurturing way. This way you’ll have accountability but will have also set healthy boundaries.
New Years Resolutions is a great way to kickstart CHANGE, but remember it’s a process and you should continue pushing through the entire year.
