You’ve reached past the time where your New Year’s resolution is no longer resolved. What started out as your best intention has been left far behind, and you hope no one remembers you making that promise to yourself. But the time has come to start again!
The plan this time is going to be more about what you can stick to, rather than would you think you can stick to. And that means approaching the whole thing through a set of logical principles that you’ll have a better chance to succeed at than last time. Take into consideration things like working out based on activities that fit your personality, or ones that you can participate in in a group, or perhaps joining a gym, finding local things to do, or going on a journey of self-discovery.
Workout Based On Personality
One of the biggest when it comes to failure with reference to workout plans is that people don’t consider what type of workout fits best with their personality. There are introverts and extroverts in the world, and they have very different ways of looking at what energy means, how it’s spent, and what good it does them. So choosing a workout based on this would lead people in different directions.
Working Out In a Group
There are studies that say people who work out in groups are more successful. This has to deal with social pressure, and in fact, some amount of survival instinct as well, if you look into the psychology. So if you found that your last workout routine didn’t stick, maybe it was because you hadn’t invited your friends along for the ride.
Joining a Gym
If you decide to join a gym, that can benefit you in a number of ways as well. The fact that you paid for a membership will often shame you into going, even if you really don’t feel like it. Then there’s always the chance that you could meet other people who are also in your boat.
Finding Local Activities
Sometimes the reason that new habits don’t stick is because there isn’t a way to do them consistently. To avoid that issue, all you have to do is find out things that are occurring regularly locally. Many people find that joining some type of cycling club fits with this theory nicely.
Discovering What Makes You Tick
Ultimate, habits are based on your personality and your history, mixed with your job, your friends, and your ultimate goal. If you adjust any of these parameters, you’ll find that the new habits that you pick out will have a better chance to make you feel the way you want, with less struggle.
