Every January, people start out on their new years resolutions but it can be hard to stick to the plan. To help you out with your 2017 fitness resolutions, we have gyms, fitness clubs, and hiking trails to help you reach your goals. The great thing about Tucson is that there are so many beautiful days. You can exercise outdoors and that can be a great way to figure out how to keep new years resolutions. When you feel like faltering from the plan and you think you can’t stick with the gym or classes, you can just head outside and take a hike…literally!
How to Keep New Years Resolutions:
There is no surefire way method for how to keep new years resolutions. Unfortunately we are all unique and we all require different things to keep us motivated and on track. Some overall ideas that might help us all are pretty simple though. Write down your goals! It’s important to see your goals on a daily basis. Another great idea is to work in a buddy system. Find a friend with similar goals and help keep each other motivated, being held accountable can really make all the difference. Finally, have a backup plan. There will come a day…or a week when you realize that there is a big gap between where you are going and where you are, discouragement can happen easily when trying to figure out how to keep new years resolutions. If you have a secondary plan you will have something to fall back on when you get sick of your current situation. Maybe you usually take a spin class but today you just can’t bare the thought of going…plan a hike with friends, take the dog for a run, or maybe you just need to take an actual bike ride outside instead. These types of backup plans will keep you from falling away from your goals entirely.
