I don’t believe in resolutions but I do believe in setting healthy goals for the coming year. I like the idea of starting the new year with attainable goals that I can do each day or week that help me to live a healthier life. Last year one of my goals was to start each morning with drinking a full glass of water, before coffee, before anything to eat, yes even before looking at social media:) Not super ambitious but since I believe water is important in our diet its a great way to make sure I get my suggested 60-80oz in. (This varies depending on which dietary calendar you follow.)
Percentage of individuals that stick to their new years resolution
“Of those who make a New Year’s resolution, after 1 week 75% are still successful in keeping it. After two weeks, the number drops to 71%. After 1 month, the number drops again to 64%. And after 6 months, 46% of people who make a resolution are still successful in keeping it.”
I am happy to say that for the most part I stuck to a glass of water each morning. Not ever day but more often than not. Another goal I had set was to spend each morning reading something educational for at least 10 minutes. I started off strong with this one but around month 3 the days started to get fewer and fewer until there were more days spent not reading.
This years goals
- Strength training: I exercise regularly but I need to be more consistent in strength training.
- Eat more greens: I love fruits and vegetables but I am a little lax on my greens.
- Start each day with a 10 minute educational read: Yes, this made it back on the list!
- And my favorite-live more boldly. Life is too short not to.
