If you’ve helped yourself to one-too-many servings of champagne, seven-layer dips and holiday cookies, congratulations! It means you spent the holidays enjoying yourself. Now it’s time to tackle all the guilt you’re feeling while trying to squeeze into your jeans (which are somehow a size tighter). But we are here to tell you that it’s never too late to start fresh and set new goals for yourself, and the new year is a perfect time to do it!
To help you start off the new year on the right foot, here are a few research-supported tips for achieving your goals in 2020:
“Being healthier in 2020” sounds like a good resolution, but it’s actually setting you up for failure because it’s way too broad and overwhelming. To increase your chances for success, try focusing your intention on a smaller, more specific task that is easily measured. For example, start “being healthier” by decreasing the number of desserts you eat a week, walking three times a week, making the bed every morning or cutting out post-dinner snacking past 7 p.m. All these ideas are a step toward living a healthier life, and they are also easy to keep track of. And when you can keep track easily, you can also notice your success more easily, resulting in boosted self-esteem and motivation to keep going!
