2023 is well underway, and now is a great time to check in on your resolutions. If you want to focus on health and wellness but are struggling to stay on track, the importance of setting and achieving goals cannot be overstated. Empower yourself to stick to your New Year’s resolutions by taking a measured approach and being consistent.
How to Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions
Setting and Achieving Goals That Fit
Most likely, your goal for 2023 is something larger picture like losing a specific amount of weight or turning over a new leaf. But in order to meet those larger, loftier ambitions, you need to start by setting and achieving goals in the short term.
Keep it simple—a week or month of preparing healthy meals and setting aside time to exercise demonstrates that you have what it takes to persevere throughout the year. Setting a smaller goal and accomplishing it gives you confidence, and that can feed the consistency you’ll need to stick with it.
Get an Accountability Buddy
You’re definitely not alone if your goal for 2023 involves fitness, nutrition, or a general focus on health and wellness. Chances are you have friends who also want to be better about exercising or eating healthy. A great way to leverage that is to team up with others who have similar goals. You can share your progress—including your setbacks—and give one another the praise and encouragement needed to keep pushing.
This also creates opportunities for more unique activities and outings. If you and a friend have the shared goal of eating healthier, you can sign up for a cooking class together. Having a workout buddy keeps you accountable if you’re lacking motivation on a night when you’ve planned to go to the gym. You can also treat yourselves to a well-deserved massage and chiropractic adjustment, which can help your body recover and relieve stress.
