What’s your Resolution?

We’re not trying to make you feel guilty. However, if your resolution is mentioned above, we can help you attain them. Check out these 3 steps;

1. What do you really want to accomplish?

The million Rupee question. It may be to get healthier, to travel more, write a book, learn a new instrument, start a business etc. Truly ask yourself if this is something you are really passionate about. If you are genuinely interested about something, that will drive you to achieve more than a generic resolution such as ‘getting fitter’ because you are expected to.

2. Take Baby steps

Its the new year, so take small steps. For example, if your resolution is to write a book, break it down. Consider writing a paragraph every day, or a full page once a week. This way, you modify your behaviour a little and you make progress. It will be slow, but  you will see gains over time. Remember: slow and steady wins the race.

3. Reward yourself

Positive reinforcement is a great way to go. If you want to lose weight, a cheat meal is a good way to stay motivated to reach your goals. In fact, the team at ironbuttz have written an excellent article about how cheat meals stimulate weight loss.

That’s it from us this year, we would like to wish you the very best in sticking to your resolutions in 2015!
