A regular fitness routine of 150 minutes of physical activity per week is recommended for maintaining a healthy weight and for disease prevention in adults. Exercise is also a key component to New Year’s Resolutions that may include a healthier lifestyle. According to statista.com, almost half of all New Year’s Resolution pertains to some form of health or wellness goal- usually to “lose weight.” However, as many of us have come to understand, only 12% of New Year’s Resolutions will yield success, with a disappointing 80% failing by February. Whether it is because we want immediate results, we aren’t specific enough in the steps we will take or we don’t believe in ourselves, our New Year’s Resolutions are likely to fizzle before we’ve started to see any results. PMC wants to increase that success rate dramatically in Pondera County and help each other and our communities stick to their New Year’s Wellness Goals.
Keys that aid in sticking to resolutions include:
· Make a list of short term goals. Make them attainable and specific
· Keep goals simple.
· Have an accountability partner, like a friend or family member. Encourage family or friends to share in each other’s progress and accomplishments.
· Celebrate the small victories. Whether you’ve lost 2 lbs or taught yourself to play a single note on the piano, celebrate your accomplishment!
· When you’ve hit a plateau, write another short-term goal list.
· If you have a hiccup, hit a speed bump or hit a plateau, make another short-term goal list and refuel efforts. Don’t give up!
