2019 New Year’s Resolution: Health Goals & HabitsPosted by Dojo Karate
Whatever your goals for the New Year, if you’re hoping to adopt healthier habits, you’re not alone. The American Psychological Association (APA) reports that losing weight and exercising regularly are among America’s top New Year’s resolutions. If you’re still deciding on your 2019 health goals but are unsure how long you’ll stick with them, it’s time to take a new approach.
According to an article by Entrepreneur, only 9.2 percent of people keep their New Year’s resolutions. That leaves another 90.8 percent who don’t stick to their goals. Why? Perhaps once the holidays end, so does their motivation. Maybe it’s the cold Minnesota winter that freezes their ambition. Or maybe they just haven’t found a routine that drives them to success.
The Importance of Habits
This year, try something different. Don’t make resolutions; create habits. We all know how quickly resolve can fade when you’re sore from yesterday’s workout or sitting in front of a delicious-looking chocolate cake. Your intention and determination may be admirable, but let’s face it—self-discipline is hard. Incorporate a new activity into your family’s routine that promotes character development and accountability. That way, you’ll be able to say no to your old habits on a daily basis and have the strength to try again if you fail.
