Millions of people around the world begin each year with a sense of renewed hope and purpose with the idea that this year will be different. It’s believed that over 160 million adult Americans make New Year’s resolutions that will will make a positive impact on their life and well-being. Some 25% of New Year’s resolutions are broken within the first 30 days and less than 8% are kept the entirety of the year. These resolutions range from traveling to new places and experiencing new things to spending more time with family or getting out of debt. Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions revolve around ones health whether that be by eating healthier, losing weight or kicking a bad habit such as smoking or indulging in sweets.
A New Year’s “Health” resolution is far and away the most sought after resolution. You will see more people exercising outside or working out in the gym just after New Years than any other time of year. It is easy to see someone who is in very good shape and say to yourself “I want to look like that!” The harder part is to figure out how to get there.
Where you want to get?
It is easy to look at yourself in the mirror or see your cholesterol or blood pressure levels and feel overwhelmed. It’s easy to wish you were in better physical condition and all of your vitals are at normal levels. The hard part is pulling yourself up and doing something about it. The first step in moving forward is deciding what your ultimate goal and destination is. Without knowing this you are unable to know how to get to that destination.
How you got where you are?
The second thing to do is to know how you got to where you are. What led to your decline in health? Sometimes it is a lack of exercise or overeating. Sometimes it’s not just overeating but binge eating that put you over the edge. Understanding what path, or habits, got you where you are will help you have a better understand of how to get you away from there as well.
How you will get there?
Now that you know where you want to go and what led you to where you currently are, you are now able to list the STEPs that will take you to where you want to go. Reminding yourself of your final destination will help keep you motivated. Understanding what factors were at play in where you currently are can help you avoid some of those mistakes and situations in the future that will help you turn your situation around and get you to where you want to go.
