Although January is a great time to set goals, most people are pretty tough on themselves, with over 43% of UK adults failing to keep up their New Year’s resolutions after just a month according to Bupa and ComsRes.
Therefore, my first goal this year is to make simple steps for longer gains.
1. Set realistic goals
Promising yourself, you’re going to cut out all caffeine and chocolate forever on January the 1st is going to set you up for failure.
Make a list of all the goals you’d like to achieve and set realistic timelines against them. For example, “I’ll cut down my 5 cups of coffee a day to one.”
Then when you feel ready to, perhaps make a choice to drink coffee only at weekends.
