5 Tips to Stay Committed to a Healthier, Happier You This New Year
As the new year gets underway, many of us are thinking about ways to improve our health and well-being. Whether you’re hoping to eat healthier, exercise more, or reduce your stress levels, committing to a healthier lifestyle can be challenging. Here are some tips from HelixVM on how to stay committed to living a healthier life in 2023:
Set achievable goals: One of the main reasons people struggle to stick to their health goals is that they set unrealistic expectations. Instead of vowing to work out for two hours every day, start with a more achievable goal, such as going for a 30-minute walk each day. Once you’ve established the habit of daily walking, you can gradually increase your activity level.
Find an accountability partner: Having someone to share your health journey with can help keep you motivated and accountable. Find a friend, family member, who can support and encourage you along the way. You can check in with them regularly to discuss your progress and challenges.
Make small changes: Changing your entire lifestyle overnight is difficult and often unsustainable. Instead, try making small changes to your daily routine. For example, swap out sugary drinks for water, take the stairs instead of the elevator, or try a new healthy recipe each week. Over time, these small changes can add up to significant improvements in your health.
Focus on the benefits: When you’re struggling to stay motivated, remind yourself of the benefits of living a healthier life. Improved physical health, increased energy, and better mood are just a few of the many benefits of prioritizing your health.
Don’t be too hard on yourself: Finally, remember that everyone slips up from time to time. If you have a day where you don’t meet your health goals, don’t beat yourself up. Instead, focus on getting back on track the next day and recommitting to your goals.
