Did you create a New Year resolution? Did you feel motivated? Confident that this year was going to be a turning point, and then a couple of months later lost sight of your goals? It happens… We all set goals, and lose motivation sometimes, but it’s not too late to pick up where you had left off – don’t give up just yet. Here are some tips to help you get back on track with creating healthier habits.

 

1. SET REALISTIC GOALS.

For example, aim to do an extra 20 minutes of physical activity each day. Or swap processed food for whole foods.

2. FOCUS ON HEALTH, NOT ON NUMBERS.

Use your feelings, your energy levels or how you fit into your clothes as a measure of success, rather than simply jumping on the scales every day.

3. BE PATIENT.

We all want results as soon as possible, but the reality  is that we won’t achieve our goals overnight – changing habits takes patience. Commit to developing habits that will ensure you achieve your goal in a sustainable and enjoyable manner.

4. DEVELOP A LIFESTYLE, NOT A CRASH DIET. Focus on creating a healthier lifestyle that will lead to consistent, long lasting and effective results, as opposed to crash diets, which may appear to work short-term, but in the long run they potentially damage your health.
