These last few months may have gotten you off your healthy routine, but it's never too early or late to start back up. January is the most popular time to set new goals.
New Years resolutions are extremely popular. Holidays tend to put stress on people at work (to finish the same amount of work in less time), traveling and not being in your routine, finances sometimes become tight. People tend to eat more and drink more when stressed.
On January 1st most people set new health and fitness goals, financial goals, relationship goals, and travel goals after spending months under unbearable stress. So what should you do about it?
Take advantage of the popularity, and make your own detailed resolutions. Check in with yourself every day for the first 21 days. It takes about 21 days to create a habit. After that check in every 5 or 10. Don't lose sight of what's important to you.
When you set your resolutions:
-Be Specific: write down detailed instead of broad goals.
-Make sure the goal is Measurable: how will you know when you reached it?
-Make sure the goal is attainable: can you personally acheive this within the given time?
-be relevant: is it worthwhile?
-make sure it's time driven: how long are you giving yourself?
