There's so much pressure when it comes to making a New Year's Resolution that I used to find myself doomed to fail before I'd even started!

But like anything, the end goal is made up of the little victories.

Working towards the daily wins builds confidence and esteem, creating a psychological landscape of 'the possible'.

Resolve and the Resolution

Don't forget a resolution is not about giving something up, its about giving you something back.

When you approach your resolutions this way you are much more likely to succeed.

When you can see yourself meeting the little daily goals, it inspires you to continue.

Suddenly your overall goal is achievable and you feel in control.

After weeks of parties, over indulgence, and constant binging on food and booze, it's small wonder by the time January rolls round we're desperate for a clean living lifestyle and all guns blazing, ready start an epic detox.

But how many people are still so eager come the 1st February?

It's all about approach and making realistic resolutions.

Did you know that the most common New Years Resolutions are:

  • Losing weight.

  • Getting more exercise.

  • Stopping smoking.

  • Saving more money.

It is reported that the average person will gain 5 lbs over the holidays so it makes sense that weight loss is the number one goal.

The world over millions of people will have kick started the year committing to various diets and training programs.

Sadly nearly 80% of those will have failed before February.

To make sure you're not part of that statistic it's important you alter your thinking when you're embarking on a diet.


Re-Frame your thinking and be realistic

When we use words like 'I'm going to give up' there's a connotation there that you're restricting yourself.

Instead, embarking on a diet with the mind-set that you're creating a a more healthful lifestyle, with delicious and healthy foods that will:

  • Increase your energy

  • Help you lose weight

  • Improve your sleep

  • Reduce mood swings

  • And a whole lot more...

Now suddenly there's a whole new perspective and you're not giving anything up, you're actually giving yourself so much more.

Remember - the most realistic and kind goal you can set yourself is to aim to be the best version of you.
