The new year is around the corner, the new year brings new hopes, new desires, and energy to fulfill all the wishes. We should welcome our new year with much motivation and optimistic thinking.
Most of us have one common goal for every resolution that is keeping our body in good shape. Staying fit and healthy is one of the most essential goals everyone should follow.
This strenuous schedule leaves us no chance to exercise. We often consume unhealthy items on our hectic days.
Here are the ways for making your fitness resolution work without any hindrance.
Ways to make your fitness resolution work
Though we are highly stimulated during the new year’s time we often make promises which can’t be fulfilled. So do without a fitness goal. We should always keep our goals realistic and achievable. Aiming high is good but you should know the difference between the actionable and non-actionable.
Start with the basics and slowly increase your goal. Aiming very high can make you demotivated in the long run if a basic goal is also not achieved.
The word smart itself stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. It aids in fulfilling your achievable goal.
It stands for proper details or mentioning minute details too. For example, if you want to lose weight. Then instead of mentioning I want to lose weight write the exact amount like 3-4 kgs.
- MeasurableYour aim should be quantifiable, it will help you to keep track of your workout. You can also mention how far or close you are to your goal.
Keeping your goals too high can make you demotivated if not achieved. Be practical and honest with your body. You know your current body status so plan accordingly. Plan according to your schedule, body type, and time you are left within a day.
Think about the importance of your fitness. Think ‘why’ you won’t fit your body or why you want to be in a perfect shape. The reason will motivate you and encourage you to work faster and better towards your goal.
As you must be aware of your schedule, so you know how much time you will have in your hands. Make your schedule accordingly. Keeping your goal accordingly can aid in keeping you on track and achieving it.
Remember not everything can be obtained from a few minutes of workout or exercise. Try to incorporate your goal into your daily routine. You can do this by watching your dietary pattern and other things, like walking more than using vehicles or climbing stairs instead of using life, etc.
All this can also help you reach your goal. If you think you are not able to work out then you can try running, swimming, dancing, or any other sport. This can be in your interest and helpful too.
Remember to rest
No matter how excited and goal-oriented you are, you should always take time to rest. Doing something which is out of your comfort zone can also cause injuries or issues with your body. If you get too exhilarated in the beginning it can also make you lose your interest in the long run.
In the beginning, you can go for a weekend workout or work out for 3-4 days a week.
After reading this you must have understood that working out can not be strenuous as it seems. You should make your workout fun by doing what you like or the field you are interested in like any sport, dancing or running, etc. give yourself rewards after securing each goal. Like cheat day or a day of shopping or no exercise day, anything you wish for.
