The thing with resolutions is – they are hard to keep. So make it simple! Here’s how.

Don’t pull out your notepad and pen at the end of your New Year celebration party. You don’t want to rush this, so put ample time and thought into what you want to achieve, why you want it, and how you intend to go about it.

Don’t resolve to do something you know you just won’t be able to do. If your schedule doesn’t have room for an hour’s exercise each morning, then don’t put ‘Exercise one hour every morning on your to-do list. Start slow and steady; even if you can put in 15 minutes of exercise daily or 30 minutes of exercise thrice a week, it’s okay. It’s a start, and it’s better than ending up not doing anything at all till the next New Year celebration, all the while feeling sad about not being able to keep your resolution.

What’s that? Do you want to give up your favourite foods for good? Are you sure you’ll be able to? Why not start with limiting your indulgences; instead of resorting to never eating cake and then bingeing on it a week later, followed by pangs of guilt, be realistic and allow yourself a treat once a week. Withdraw gradually and you’re sure to succeed.
Give yourself a pat on the back for your efforts from time to time, and celebrate when you attain your step goals and keep your New Year’s resolution. This will help you track your journey and progress, and also keep you going for the big prize.

What happens if, despite your best intentions, you end up not keeping your fitness resolutions post-New Year celebration? Will you give up completely? Consider such scenarios and have a backup plan ready. Pick up from where you leave, don’t worry about what you missed out on achieving, focus on what you still can.

Tip: Keep things simple and realistic, and you’ll be fine!

Keep it fun and interesting, and it won’t feel like work. How do you do that? These pointers will help!

Instead of taking time out of your schedule to exercise, why not burn some calories while you’re going about your day! Start with taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work or when visiting friends. And you don’t have to climb all the way up to the 10th floor; climb as many floors as you can and use the lift for the rest. Consider having a standing desk in your home office or at your workplace, walk around when you’re on audio calls, and the like.

Having someone to confide in about your fitness journey helps. Enlist your friends to keep pushing you towards your goals. Better yet, coax them to get started on fitness with you.
