Reevaluting 2015 Goals
We’re now three months into 2015… time sure does fly, when you’re having fun! March is a good time to take a step back and evaluate how our 2015 goals and/or resolutions are coming along. As most of you regular readers know, I’ve been partnering with Kohl’s and their #MakeYourMove campaign over the past few months. How have you been making your move, so far this year?
In the spirit of checking in with our New Year’s Resolutions and/or Goals, I’m sharing tips for being successful to #MakeYourMove and create positive change this year.
Write it down- Never underestimate the power of written words! I find it helpful to list things I want to accomplish and then check off tasks to keep track of my progress. To-do lists keep me organized and ensures that I follow through. Isn’t this the cutest journal? Love it!
Make time for yourself- If you want to be successful, I think it’s so important to allow yourself me time. Spend time with friends, read a book or do something else that you enjoy. Taking time to relax and enjoy life will serve you well, and keep you energized and inspired.
Set Measurable Goals- Make sure goals you have set for yourself are practical and measurable. Create goals that are as specific as possible and revisit them every day. Vision boards and/or a list of goals are great visual reminders of what you’re working towards accomplishing. Be sure to keep your visual reminder where you will see it every morning.
Choose the Right Tech- There are scores of gadgets and apps that can help motivate you to be more active, stay organized or eat more nutritiously. If one of your goals is to be more active, the Fitbit is a great tool for tracking progress and keeping yourself accountable.
Reevaluate Resolutions Often- Many people resolve to do something and then end up not really enjoying it. For example, if your goal is to finish a marathon, only to realize you don’t enjoy distance running, that’s a bit of a problem. Don’t feel bad if after reevaluating your goal(s), you decide you need to switch gears and pick a different goal.
Be Forgiving- Even the best planned resolutions can lose steam by now. Once the excitement of a new regimen has worn off, it’s easy to justify taking a few days (or weeks) off. It’s expected to have a few slipups and everyone stumbles here and there. Don’t feel bad about taking a little time off from your routine- just don’t give up entirely.
Something to think about….
