I had a friend ask me the other day “what are your resolutions?” and my response was this: I make resolutions every day, week, month, and quarter.
Does that mean that I make them and fail at them and make others? Not necessarily.
It means that I am constantly evolving.
Are you a resolutionist? Do you make annual promises of health, fitness, and financial goals, only to drop them or lose interest within a couple of months?
If so… it’s ok! It’s a common set-up and is precisely what human beings do when setting lofty unattainable personal goals. As usual, no judgement from me here, just an observation of human behavior…
How do you get healthier in 2017? You don’t just do everything at once. You GRADUALLY incorporate healthier habits into your life:
Perhaps you begin by eating more vegetables. Which will result in your being more creative in the kitchen and bringing lunches to work.
When you’ve been doing that for a couple of weeks, maybe you increase your water intake by a couple of glasses a day.
When you’ve got that down, perhaps you try setting an alarm to remind you to go to bed a little earlier, which will help you get up a little earlier.
Maybe you decide to set aside 10 minutes a few times in your daily schedule to get up, step outside, and go for a brisk walk (a very brisk if it’s below zero!) to clear your head and increase your focus.
Here’s the thing; fit, healthy people didn’t get there overnight. It was an evolution in training; training their minds, bodies and ultimately creating habits to being health-centered. They’ve had coaches, trainers and mentors assist them in learning the skills to creating a healthy lifestyle.
So this year, don’t just resolve; evolve. Evolution takes time. It takes consistent change.
What I want for all humans is the ability to live a healthy, able-bodied life that they enjoy. I want people to feel good in their bodies and to love themselves fully and completely. To be able to be pain-free and mobile for a lifetime. Not just look good in the moment. Not just to lose weight this year.
