Christmas is over and it’s now the season of New Year’s resolutions, the time of year when promises are made, goals are created and your diet and exercise regime gets an overhaul.
So, whether 2017 is the year you’re getting hitched, or whether you’re motivated to make some big changes, here are five tips to help you achieve your goals courtesy of HYPOXI!
1. Start With Baby Steps
The key to keeping your New Year’s resolutions is to set an achievable goal, so forget about trying to drop 20 kilos, quit smoking and save for a house… by the end of next week,” says HYPOXI’s Alexis Farley.
Start with a goal that you can work towards, maybe it’s losing 2 kilos instead of 20, or saving 10% of your pay check for a house, that way you’ll continue to be motivated instead of being disappointed in yourself when you don’t reach the unreachable goal!
2. Make a Plan
“Once you’ve made your achievable goal, it’s time to put a plan in place,” suggests Alexis, “Map out a timeline and set mini-goals along the way.” Celebrate each ‘mini victory’ as you work towards your larger goals.
3. Prioritise Health
No matter what goals you have (career, financial, relationship etc), your health and well being should be prioritised, because feeling your best will significantly impact every other aspect of your life.
If you’ve found yourself unable to budge those last few kilos from the typical ‘trouble areas’, commit to a course of HYPOXI, a low-impact exercise method that is up to three times more effective at burning stubborn fat than traditional exercise – it can help you lose up to 20cm from your butt, hips and thighs AND you we’ve got a free trial for you and your friends (click here to claim your free trial)!
4. Have a Buddy
Get a friend involved for double the fun. Whether you make a pact to save a certain amount of money or start eating healthier, you’ll have someone to vent to when times get tough (aka when the boss brings doughnuts into the office).
Plus, because you’re answering to your friend, you’ll be less likely to waver from your goal!
5. Prepare for Failure
This may sound counterproductive, but it’s human-nature to fail, so it’s essential that you have a back-up plan for if (*when) you fail. Know that your goal is still in reach if you accidentally spend some of your ‘future house deposit’ on a Zara flash sale or if you gorge on Tim Tams.
The trick is to know what you’re going to do if this happens (ie. Commit to a double session at the gym or return all the impulse purchases except for one) and get back on track.
