Following on from our last blog – here is part 2 of Resolving to Improve Your Health and Vitality in 2018. How are you going so far?
Breaking your goal into smaller, more achievable goals can bring amazing results – you just need some time, patience and a dash of discipline.
Maybe these could be some resolutions for 2018
It’s time for some New Year’s fitness resolutions. Many people tend to forget their New Year fitness goals as soon as the month of January finishes.
To help you stick with your fitness goals, here are some tips that you may help.
We all want results fast but starting rigorous exercises without really knowing what can do can actually harm your health. When starting an exercise routine after a long period of inactivity, going too quickly can result in acute or overuse injuries by putting a lot of stress on your body.
That’s counter-productive so a better idea is to start slowly and gradually increase intensity, duration etc. This allows your body to adjust to your new routine and workouts and you will be able to get into shape not only faster but with control and respect for your body.
Make it routine
Decide on a time to exercise. That may be daily or, on certain days of the week. It can help to write this down and put it somewhere where you can see it daily. Then, choose what type exercise you are going to participate in. Start with something you enjoy or which works for you. Don’t follow others, as not everyone has the same body type or preferences.
Select from group or individual activities such as weightlifting, swimming, running, walking, basketball, cycling and tennis. Then decide how much time you can devote to exercising. If you haven’t exercised for a long period of time, start with as little as 15 minutes per session. Gradually, you can increase this time to at least 30 minutes a day.
Find a workout partner
It’s really helpful to find a workout partner. It can be overwhelming for you to follow an exercise routine alone. Having a workout partner will not only help you in creating an exercise routine but also let you stay focused long after the New Year is over. A friend can help you stay motivated and reach your fitness goals.
So, in order to reach your diet and fitness goals, break it down, do one thing at a time, give yourself a target and see how far you can go.
Keep patience and have faith in yourself. And when you arrive at your goal – reward yourself and set a new one!
