15 Ways to Make 2023 Your Healthiest Year Ever
“New year, new me” is not a tired cliché. It’s something your 2023 can become if you set your mind to it. A new year’s resolution that sticks is not declared at a random moment. It’s carefully planned beforehand.
If you’re ready to get into shape, these are all the steps you’ll need to follow!
1. Get a Gym Membership
This is the most effective way to achieve your new fitness goals. You’ll be in the perfect environment to inspire you with all types of different workout methods available.
2. Eat Foods That Give Energy
It doesn’t have to be a sacrifice, either. There are plenty of delicious but healthy foods.
3. Establish a Rewards System
What do you consider a treat? Whatever it is, indulge in it every time you complete one full week of workouts.
4. Get Your Sleep Schedule in Order
Your new fitness goals will be hard to achieve if you’re tiredall the time.
5. Find a Partner
As people, we feel beholden to doing something we’ve promised we’re going to do for other people. Make this work in your favor, and be a way your new year promises are upheld.
6. Clean Your Environment
What does this have to do with fitness? Everything. Clutter puts a serious damper on motivation.
7. Build Yourself Up Slowly
If you push yourself to the limit the first time, you won’t come back. Stamina builds in increments. Meet yourself where you’re at. If you only move for 15 minutes at first, it’s still something. You can always do more later.
8. Make a Workout Schedule
Creating written evidence of your commitments will hold you more accountable.
9. Cut Out the Junk Food
Not only does it lack nutritional value, but it actively drains your energy.
10. Create a Motivating Playlist
Music has a powerful effect on our mood. Pick a set of songs that get you in the mood to get up and moving.
11. Rotate Your Exercise Methods
This has two functions. First, you work out different muscles. Second, it’ll keep the novelty up so you’ll stay interested.
12. Get Some Workout Equipment
Buy a small variety to figure out what works the best for you. Start out with the most basic, inexpensive types to avoid the risk of wasting money.
13. Eliminate Sources of Stress
The biggest new year resolution killer is stress. It has an extremely close relationship with fatigue, which will make it harder for you to find the motivation to work out.
14. Create A Fitness Room
This way, if you don’t feel like making the trip to the gym some days, you can still get your workout in.
15. Make Notifications
Start the new year by putting a reminder on your phone for workout time. It’ll serve as another enforcer.
Starting The New Year Right
Your new fitness goals begin today. A healthy lifestyle comes down to making choices that are beneficial to your mind and body every day. If you wake up every day committing to good choices, the results you desire will come naturally.
