As we prepare to start a new year, many of us find ourselves thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. This year, I want to encourage you to forget resolutions and create lifestyle SOLUTIONS!

Year after year I hear from friends, family, and peers how much they hate New Year’s Resolutions. They’re vehemently positive in this regards as if the act of setting a New Year’s Resolution is forced upon them.  I find this whole ritual hilarious!

Year after year, “getting healthier and fitter” are in the running for top-3 New Year’s resolutions. I’ve come to appreciate some of the stumbling blocks setting people up for failure even before they’ve started.  To simplify things I’ve put together a list of 8 tips for helping you set realistic, gradual New Year’s SOLUTIONS to achieve improved health, wellness and fitness.

To help with understanding this process, I hosted a live-webinar. Below is the full replay along with an opportunity to sign-up for a complimentary copy of my “Discover Your Purpose” workbook.

8 Tips for New Year’s Solution Setting

  1. Make time. It’s as simple as that. You have to schedule your activity times otherwise they just won’t happen. Sadly, it’s always easier to not do something than it is to do it.
  2. Make it family time. Try and plan some activities that you can do as a family so that, not only do you get fit, you can also enjoy more time interacting together and build stronger relationships.
  3. Parents – lead by example. You can’t nag the kids then expect them to do something you’re not willing to do. Show them the benefits of exercise and they’ll soon follow.
  4. Start a journal or a blogMake yourself accountable! When you have others tracking your progress, it’s hard to get out of it. Keeping a fitness and nutrition journal also allows you to analyze your progress at the end of each month. Consider investing in an expert to give you feedback, help you discuss areas for improvement and next steps.
  5. You are what you eat. It’s an old one but a good and true one. Cut back on sugar and sodium, eat lots of green, leafy veg, and remember to drink plenty of water. Sticking to a balance of meats, fruit and veg never fail. But, a BIG MUST — STOP impulse SNACKING this year! Make and take snacks with you EVERYWHERE. Check out my 5-in-5 Almond Power-up Snacks to Go recipes for examples of what you can do with just 5 simple ingredients. TIP: Join the 6-Week RBT Shred if you are stuck for a plan and want a Tribe to hold you accountable to your new year lifestyle solutions.
  6. Be realistic, be gradual. What works for one person or family, may not work for the next. You have to decide what is realistic for you and your lifestyle. Set achievable goals, reassess them often and reward yourselves with a small treat when you smash your targets.
  7. Enjoy it! Getting fit and active doesn’t have to be a chore. Incorporate it into something you all love or have a passion for. Make it fun, competitive and set incentives. After all, it has been proven that laughter is good for us.
  8. Challenge yourself. It takes just 21 days to form a habit. In the grand scheme of life, that’s not long. Commit to making a change. Be vocal about it!  Tell your friends, family, and co-workers that this year is your year to make a change and demand accountability.  Start with a 90-day challenge and see what happens… TIP:  use SMART goal setting when setting goals.

The Guarantee

I can guarantee that if you follow the above steps you’ll succeed in making this year one of your healthiest yet.  Just remember, once you’ve set the plan in motion and stay consistent with the plan, eventually it WILL become your lifestyle… and at that point, you’re on autopilot. Make it count!
