While everyone puts “get in shape” on their list of resolutions, very few people actually accomplish that goal. Why? Because it is too broad. Everyone’s idea of what being in shape is is completely different, which means that there is no real target to aim for. Below are several methods for honing in on what is important in order to maximize your results.
Define What is Important
You know your body best, which means that you should be the one to define exactly what you want to change or improve. If you would like to lose weight, make sure that you choose exercises that will help you accomplish that goal. If you want to be in better cardiovascular shape, make sure to focus on exercises that will make it easier for you to walk, jog, or swim for longer. If you are concerned about looking better in the mirror, you might want to concentrate on lifting weights and cardio.
One of the biggest roadblocks to success is our unreal expectations of ourselves. Nothing worth doing can be done overnight, and that is especially true of our health. In order to set ourselves up for long-term success, we need to take small steps that will lead to large gains over time. By learning how to adjust our behaviors a little at a time, we can create a different mindset that will allow us to tackle larger goals. Don’t start going to the gym five days a week; start with twice a week. When two weekly trips don’t feel like enough, add a third. Within six months, you might be at the gym five days a week crushing goals that seemed impossible in January!
Sleeping more, and on a regular schedule, can have many positive impacts on your health. Better sleep can improve your mood, help you concentrate, and will allow your body to heal better after workouts or injuries. Try cutting down on caffeine in the afternoon and avoid looking at your phone or other screens too much before bed time.
