The excitement of the new year has come and gone, and with it, some of you may have noticed your motivation to stick to those resolutions you vowed to accomplish back on January 1st beginning to wane as well.
If you already feel yourself falling back into old routines and putting off your health goals you’re not alone. More than 40 per cent of people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions after only one month, according to a poll by the Statistic Brain Research Institute.
Making positive and meaningful lifestyle changes that stick can be tough. We all lose focus and face setbacks from time to time, but that doesn’t mean you should just pack it in and call it a day at the first sign of difficulty.
If you’ve gone off track from your goals for 2017 remember that a year is a marathon, not a sprint – you still have 10 months to accomplish everything you set out to do!
To help you stay on track I recommend checking in and reviewing your goals monthly. Don’t try to make too many changes at once, keep your goals realistic, and reward yourself for small successes along the way.
No matter what your individual health goals may be, the whole Align team is here to support and empower you on every step of your journey.
