Love it or hate it, a new year is almost upon us. When the ball has dropped and the calendar is replaced on the wall, many begin to make New Year’s resolutions. According to Statistic Brain, 45 percent of Americans typically make New Year’s resolutions each year without fail, while 38 percent choose to avoid the resolution altogether. Of those, 24 percent who choose a resolution never meet their goal – only 8 percent of resolution makers actually succeed in sticking to their chosen resolution.
The most common type of resolution made by Americans each year is in some way related to bettering themselves, whether in terms of their career or health. 47 percent of resolutions are of this type. Are you someone who opts for the self-improvement resolution? Whether you are looking to get in better shape, or you plan to carve out time each month to visit spas in Windsor to treat yourself, the key to keeping your resolution is to keep it simple.
If you set a lofty goal – for example, going from a size 16 to a size 4 – you might be setting yourself up for failure. The best way to make your lifestyle healthier is to take small, easy to repeat steps, adding something new once they become habit. You’ll notice that once you’ve adjusted to your lifestyle change, each new change will become easier and easier.
Setting these types of goals brings its own rewards, but you need to ensure you reward yourself if you press on and stick to your goals. (Maybe with monthly massages in Fort Collins?) How can you keep it simple to ensure success? Here are some small changes you can make in your everyday life towards a healthier you:
Instead, incorporate simple exercises into everyday activities, like squats while you brush your teeth in the morning and leg lifts while cooking dinner at night. Incorporate physical activity into your family time on the weekends – take a hike or family bike ride, or just play a game of basketball with the kids. In time, you’ll find your energy level increasing, and you’ll be ready to take the leap into working out more regularly, maybe even at the gym!
One of our many spa packages in Windsor can help you on your way to looking and feeling your best. If you haven’t already, consider incorporating regular visits into your routine. When you take the time to care for yourself, it becomes easier to care for your family!
