How to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions
The new year is just about here! We are so excited for 2017 and all of the new opportunities we are sure will follow. If you are one of the many people who make new year’s resolutions, yet tend to lose their way, you are not alone. The good news is, we have some tips and tricks to help you reach your new year’s resolutions and remain healthy while doing it! Here are some tips we’d like to share to keep you on track:
Make Short-Term Goals for Long-Term Results
If your goal is to save $5,000 this year, don’t think about it all at once. Instead, create a smaller goal, such as setting aside $100 per week for savings. By setting small deadlines and goals, you’ll be able to see how much progress you have made, as well as thinking about your little goal each week instead of the bigger goal.
Your Resolution is About the Journey
Make sure your resolution is something that you can control! For example, you can control how many servings of vegetables you eat each day. You cannot control the exact number of pounds that you will lose in a year. Think about sticking to a healthy diet (including our juice cleanses!) instead of focusing on the outcome. Make your journey your resolution: going to the gym at least three times per week, and doing a juice cleanse to start the year feeling your best!
Make Time for Your Resolution
We know that you are very busy, so make sure you are scheduling time for your resolution exactly like you would for an appointment. This is an appointment you need to keep with yourself to keep your mind and body focused on your goals. Setting an alarm on your phone can help you set aside the time you need to dedicate yourself to your resolution.
Use a Friend
Tell people about your resolutions, and be specific! Those who clearly state their goals to others are opening themselves to the accountability their friends and family will happily help them with. Focus clearly on your resolution and send it out to the world! Tell everyone that you are going to write a book this year, and then feel the immense satisfaction and positivity coming from both yourself and those around you when you succeed.
Keep Track of Your Progress
Some people use journals or pocket schedules to keep track of their goals and what sort of progress they are making. You can create a chart to record how far you ran each day, or make a system to see how many servings of vegetables you are eating in a day. Consider creating a bullet journal or something similar to keep yourself on pace!
Discover the Best Way to Meet Your Goals
If your goal is to work towards a healthier and more energized body, we can help! Our juice cleanses are the perfect way to rid your body of toxins and move towards a happier you. In fact, if your new year’s resolution is to purify your body, we can walk you through the juice cleanse steps you will need to succeed:
Prepare: Focus on eating a plant-based diet for a few days before you begin the cleanse, and ensure that the space around you is positive and supportive. We have found that many people feel better about the cleanse if they have a friend or coworker also participating in the cleanse. If you believe the support may help you, seek a buddy!
Plan: Know that not everyone has a smooth process during their cleanse, as there are many toxins that must be removed. Check in with your body during the cleanse and see how you feel before you make any large plans. If you are tired, feel free to let your body relax. If you feel more energized, you may exercise and follow your normal routine.
Enjoy: Once your cleanse is over, you will feel increased energy and will now crave foods that fuel your body properly, such as steamed vegetables and simple salads. Enjoy these foods and your transition into a healthier you.
That’s it! Following a juice cleanse is simple to do, and the way your body will feel afterward will make the process worth it.
