One month ago we all popped the champagne and toasted to 2017- the year you would get healthy/ exercise more/ be less stressed/ save money… whatever you promised yourself you would change. So how’s it going? Gotten a little derailed?
Well fear not! Just because the new year is no longer new doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your goals! Here are a few simple tips for you to remotivate to have a healthier and happier 2017:
- Start small: tackling one giant goal can be overwhelming, not to mention discouraging when you can’t see the path that leads from point A to point B. So instead of shooting for the impossible, break your goal up into smaller (more achievable) steps. This way, you’ll not only still be on your path to success, but you will also feel more encouragement to keep going each time you accomplish a step.
- Tell people about it: Keeping your goal to yourself may seem tempting- no one to hold you accountable if you don’t achieve it. But that’s exactly why you should be vocal about it! Letting your friends and family know that you are striving to cut down on your sugar intake will make you think twice about diving into dessert at the next family gathering. And if your support system knows that you’re trying to accomplish something, most likely they’ll cheer you on!
- Forgive yourself: Sometimes we slip up. Hey, it’s ok- we’re only human! So if a night out with the girls turned into a healthy diet derailment, don’t stress. Just pick up where you left off and keep it positive.
- Don’t forget why you started: In the end, we just all want to be happy. The goals you probably chose for yourself reflect way in which you think you could improve yourself to increase your happiness. So don’t forget that! Keeping a positive mindset and remembering the ultimate goal will help you keep things in perspective and achieve what you set out to do.
So there you are. We hope that our tips help you live a healthier and happier life in 2017 and beyond. And don’t forget that Juice to Boost is there for you in your quest for health and wellness <3
