Before we know it, we will be setting goals for 2020. Wait…what? How dare you talk about 2020, it’s only February.
Question: How long have you been looking forward to the start of a new year, moving away from all of the obstacles and challenges and getting that fresh start a New Year brings? If you’re like me, then you were (and maybe still are) very excited.
I’m here to offer you some encouragement, because although a New Year often brings peak motivation, you have 365 other motivational check-in’s. We should always be happy to wake up in the morning, because it’s a new day! Don’t wait until Monday…today is your day!
Did You Know:Only 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s Resolutions

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news. This statistic even discouraged me a little. Now that we are aware of the reality, what are we prepared to do about it? How do we prevent falling into the 92% of people who give up on a goal they set during their motivational peak?
ANSWER: Find a support system, someone to hold you accountable to your commitment.
If you don’t have a specific goal, that’s OK. Having the desire to live a healthy and active lifestyle is positive change that will benefit your life tremendously. Committing to being more active, making healthier food choices, getting enough rest, taking care of yourself and doing things that make you happy, will all add value to your daily living.
