As we are entering the New Year more often then not people have large goals that they wish to achieve. Crazy how just a change in date can cause people to have this “new year, new me” mindset. There is nothing wrong with this at all except for the fact that 92% of New Year Resolutions fail. Does this make you think that the whole “new year, new me” mindset is rather flawed? Lets try thinking about “new year, BETTER me”.
I think it is far more impressive to create a goal that you plan to achieve through the whole year and truly better yourself. It takes 2 months (66 days roughly) to make a habit automatic. Can you just think of how your life could change if you just dedicated two months to a positive change and then turning it into a fantastic habit. Lets give ourselves two months to really put the work in, make the changes, and then build life long habits.
As a personal trainer and coach I have come to realize that when people have fitness goals in mind they want instant results. Sure that would be nice but nothing worth having comes easy so lets plan out two months where we will make a good change. Weather this is making it to the gym 4 times a week, eating more whole foods, drinking more water, or even just being positive every morning.
